Bolt-on guards – The key to the universe.

I don’t know about you lot, but I’ve always been of the opinion that a good set of bolt-on guards can really make the difference when toughing up a classic JDM car. There’s always a few ways you can go about restoring your car; you can make it a pristine example of how the car originally rolled off the line, with maybe a tweak here and there to make it better than new, or you can tough it right the hell up. Bolt-on guards, lowered, deepdish rims, whatever takes your fancy. And I’ve always been a fan of the bolt-on guards.

Head over to this Japanese Nostalgic Car forum thread for a few examples.

    Great picture. A lot of hot Japanese classics came with “overfenders” from factory – most of which were attached using pop-rivets not bolts!

    Of course, the purpose for hte most part of these models was for homologation.
