  3. The slow transformation of Nyx

  4. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    A bit of a thread necro, but we'll be putting Nyx up for sale in the very near future.
  5. Hi all, I have to get a certified valuation of my car to get an agreed value for my insurance as it has a fair bit of work done to it body kit, rims and paint wise. However I have been having great difficulty tracking down anyone in Canberra that can do a certified valuation. Does anyone know of anyone or a firm that can do one and if they have had a good experience with them? Otherwise if I can find one in ACT, does anyone know of one in Melbourne as I pop down there once a month or so. Cheers Dono

    Just picked the car up on Thursday and was pretty happy with everything! I will get some more photos going in a few days once I get settled back into work and suchlike. Cheers Dono
  7. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    Thanks man, I am looking forward to getting it next year!! We are planning on coming down to Melbourne for the Australia Day weekend to have a bit of an engagement party down that way and we will bring the car down then. Cheers Dono
  8. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    Yep, the car got finished three days after I flew out of the country! :-( Jerry from J Racing took the car up to Auto Salon just gone and took a few pics for me.... kind of frustrating that thousands of people got to see my car before I did, lol. I have updated the photos on at the start of the thread, I will take some more pics when I get home and have a look for myself, will also try and get some of the exhaust and diffuser. All in all I am pretty happy with the pics so far and am looking forward to seeing the end product in the flesh so to speak, if anyone saw it at the show and has any comments/thoughts please let us know. Cheers Dono

    There is a long story with the rims, but short version is a couple of deals fell through and these were the only GTC's with roughly the right offset and size we wanted which we could get in time. I'm happy with them though, considering it is a daily drive I didnt want to go too rediculous, though I might have already crossed that line. With luck the body kit has been fully fitted and preped for painting by today, the turbo and intercooler will have gone in. The car gets sprayed tomorrow, airbrushed and then the Wing, Diffuser, eyelids and mesh gets fitted. Friday they will play with the ride height a little, put the JDM sterring wheel in and give it an interior detail, then it is off to Melbourne for the weekend. Hopefully be able to upload some pics over the weekend of the finished product. Cheers Dono

    I will try and get out to the work shop over the next couple of days take some shots under the car before the diffuser goes on. Cheers Dono
  11. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    The entire kit is done by J Racing and is based off the one originaly made for the Autosalon Drift car, the one going onto mine is slightly modified in a few places. The side skirts will be on shortly and I will post some pics, the rear diffuser will help balance the rear end out, as well the wing, though there is minor alterations happening to the rear bar itself. Cheers Dono
  12. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    Ok now things are really starting to fly along. The rear quarters are test fitted and photos have been updated. They completely transform the look of the car. Just gotta arrange for a new fuel cap setup before the kit can be fully attached, once that happens in the respray and then fitting of the diffuser and wing. In the meantime they are fitting the inter cooler, turbo and coil overs to see how far we can drop the car. The front is gonna be interesting as we might need to machine the rims down a couple of mm to allow a better turning ability. Hopefully everything is on track to have the car fully finished (for this year anyway) by end of next week. Cheers Dono
  13. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    The rims have finally been fitted so went out to the work shop and took a few more shots before they started final fitting of the rear quarter. Defintely doesn't need spacers, if anything the front quarter still needs to be pushed out another 5mm-10mm. If all goes well they will modify the kit as needed over this weekend and do a final fitting on Monday which will include the side skirts and rear diffuser, plus the removal of the stock spoiler and welding the holes up. Painting should start by mid to late next week, then its just the fitting of the wing, installing the intercooler and adjusting the ride height. With luck be picking it up next weekend or early into the following week. Cheers Dono
  14. Tyre Sizes....

    Started a new thread in the Members Rides under: Wide Body S15 - Nyx I will keep that one updated with the pics as the car comes together Cheers Dono
  15. Wide Body S15 - Nyx

    Hi all, Just thought I would post some pics of my S15 going from a trashed front end/left side to a custom wide body. The wide body was planned for a while but the start date got brought forward when I hit some oil in the wet with some tyres that were badly in need of being replaced (I know, learnt the hard way). Over the past couple of months we have slowly put it back together and started doing the modifications which include: Tinted windows Smoked LED Tail Lights J Racing Carbon Fibre Vented Bonnet JDM Steering Wheel (old one was wrecked in the accident) APEXI Pod Filter Trust T518z Turbo Trust Type S Coil overs with elec dampner Trust Spec LS intercooler Custom built 3" split exhaust with 4.5" cannons GTC Face 2 19"x10.5" -1 front, 20"x10.5" -7 rear 1855mm GT wing Rear Diffuser J Racing Wide Body Kit - Front Bar - Front Quarter panels (around 65-75mm) - side skirts - Rear Quarter panel (around 85mm) Once the bodykit is on the car will get a respray, black with a subtle red zarelic over the top with some Japanese Kanji airbrushed onto the doors. That will do until next year when we will start on the interior and some more engine work. For those who were going to ask, Nyx is the greek goddess of Night, kinda got hooked on Greek mythology for a while there and the name really stuck. Cheers Dono Update as of 08/11 Update as of 11/11 Update as of 23/12
