PostSubject: version:select   April 28th 2008, 1:56 pm

I was just kinda wondering what version:select shit anyone was running.

I'm looking to kinda mix and match my favorite styles, but I know some shit is lower than other shit and might not line up very well with eachother.

Basically I've been looking to get this stuff for the battle toad hatch:

V:S type 6 front

V:S type 2 side skirts

V:S type 5 rear bumper


I've got the wheels picked out as well, but IDK if they will still be there when I'm ready to order.

17x8 +10
17x9 +14
Stock rolled fenders

I was just kinda wondering how this stuff would line up.

Oh and Edgar, it'd be nice for you to jump in and let me know what you were running before cause thoes sides and rear lined up nice. I wanna say it was the V:S type 5 rear but IDK. I just don't know about the Type 6 front how that would look with the rest.


Oh and I guess I should add that if you know of other stuff that looks simular like this and still has the same flow, feel free to let me know.

V:S 5 sides have that lip to them where they come out. I don't really care for that much. I like more of a flat lip.

the width of the wheel, should be atleast equal to the diameter when doubled.

15" needs atleast 7.5" width
17" needs atleast 8.5" width
18" needs atleast 9" width

etc.

Space what?

I'm talkin flush aero. Like you look down the side profile of the car and the front bumper and sideskirts are on the same line then the front of the rear bumper matches up with the sides and goes up a bit.

Something kinda like this-ish except flat side skirts that don't curve and a longer, not so agressive slope on the rear bumper...

I'll put the car down about as low as the vert was, but thats all the further I can really go with where I have to drive.

I know what D*squad is gonna say, but before you do, let me remind you what my driveway is:


... ok no pics cause photobucket is getting updated at the moment, but I know you guys remember the hardcore 3 wheel action and the frame scraping as I crest my driveway. Add in that where my g/f lives isn't the nicest of all area's so I've got 2 options. Park on the street with some shitboxes, or pull into the back parking lot which is rittled with like 6" deep pot holes and it is seriously impossible to miss them all. I'll try to get pics of it sometime and you'll know what I mean.

IDK, when I get the aero we'll see if I've got the twig and berry's.

But back on topic. Anyone have any other suggestions. It's not like I'm deadset on the V:S shit, though that front bumper and rear bumper do really fit the look I want. Since I'm not going to be turbo for at least a while, and no offense to anyone doing this, but I don't like seeing a huge vent in the bumper with no intercooler to fill it. So definatly something with a small front air dam.


Oh yea, and I guess we could talk paint as well seeing how I'm not sure if I'm gonna just rattle can it or actually do paint.

I've been floating with the idea of doing a real matte/flat black with rainbow flake. You know, like old street rods and lead sleds. Actually have the flat clear sprayed over the car but possibly put metallic or metal flake in it.

Or my oldschool idea for the vert which was white with pink pearl and black top with pink metallic.

Or any other different ideas that could look good. Again, not deadset on paint, but idk what I'll do when I get the stuff. We'll see.

So.... yeah... I'm typically anti bodykit type stuff... but wow. Anyone have any idea of the breakdown of components on that car? I see bumper (w/ custom center vents?), side skirts, rear bumper valence, molded flares, vented hood etc... but brands?

Found more details... Smile

THat car is super lame old school shit.
Shit was soo hot 5 years ago. Lame today.
Its bomex everything, front, sides, hood, flares.
Blah blah.
Anyway.
Nackers, like they said, i ran Ver 5 rear and origin stylish skirts.
As far as your aero plan, just go with whatever you think will look good. Josh runs a cool combo that would be rad as fuck but im not into ripping peoples style.

He runs kouki front, Sexy style VER.II sides, and vertex rear.
I dunno the V:S numbers for any of this shit. I just call it by their real names.

People should learn that shit. VS and Origin did not invent anythning.

Heres some quick ones for you guys.

Origin Aggresive line=Uras
Origin Stylish line=Vertex
Origin Stream line= Vertex sides and rear, Origin original design front
Version select Ver 1=GP sports
Version select Ver 2=Vertex also(same as stylish)
Version select Ver 3=Uras also(same as aggressive)
Version select Ver 4=Msports front, vertex sides and rear(exc. S13 silvia.)
thats the same for all S chassis applications up there.
From here down it changes a little per app.

180sx
Version select Ver 5=Sexy Style Ver.II
Version select Ver 6=oem kouki aero

S13 SilviA
Version select Ver 4=G corporation

And so on and so forth.
BUt it annoys me when people call it by the VS or Origin name.
