welll the decision has been made im fitting all the panels.

ive fitted a proper import front number plate

moved the rear spoiler forward 2" it sits perfect now, fitted front arches and marked up rear arches for trimming, the rear also needs to be dropped 1" more to make it sit square and rear arch gap to be correct.

the centre line in the rear arch pic is where im going to cut with a plasma cutter.
i am very happy its starting to look like how i want it. arches are going to stay black, spoilers are going to be blue.

Over-fenders and mirrors really make it.
Top job.

ive just ordered some wheel spacers, coming out 35mm at the back, 10mm at the front, should then make the wheels/tyres sit better in the arches.

I love C210s and you've gone in exactly the same direction I would go with mine, if I had one. Top job. I dig the colour, too. :tu:

thanks i was adamant on respray when i first bought it, im on the fence now as it has grown on me abit, the colour is nissan 305 blue.

well i have touched the old girl up and black gloss painted the extra body panels, shes far from perfect just tidyed up a little for now bearing in mind im no painter or body panels man, i may get it repainted in white im not sure yet, just tidyed up rough for now so i can use it a little as soon as the dry weather is here.

im am happy with how she looks its come together well imo considereing the budget.

its very dirty/dusty in the workshop and the car is filthy and desperately needs a wash and polish but i wont do that til its abit warmer, but took a few pics anyways.

Found these on eBay if you're looking to do a JDM conversion on the rear end.

oh yeh forgot to add if you change your mind on the exterior styling check out Mizuno Works

http://www.mizuno-works.com/parts/index.html

You can also custom order the c210 headlight racing jacket off them aswell.

got my front lip and rear wing off them for my c210. A bit pricey when you factor in shipping but oh so worth it.

Any progress mate?

I just bought a c210 4 dr last week. What did you use to blank the hole from the drivers mirror. I'm sourcing some fender mirrors ATM so curious what you used to do it? Any photo of the blank too?

Also you don't happen to remember of when you were looking for flares they made four door flares?
