Here’s Part 2 of my insight into some of my favourite builds from the JDM Style Tuning forums.

I’m a member of many different forums, but I’m not much of a poster. JDM Style Tuning was one of the first forums that I really got involved in, posting regularly and attending meets. While I don’t post there much these days, I still like to read the forum almost daily and make the odd post every now and then. There are a number of great builds on the forum, so I thought I’d do a little spotlight on some of my favourites in no particular order. Please note, this is not a “best of”, it’s just the ones that tickle my fancy. There’s a few builds to get through, so I’ll split them up over a few different posts over the next couple of months in between regular build features.
Lately in the car scene we’re so used to seeing cars that you could describe as “rough & ready”. Drift pigs, hood ride, and rat style modifications are so popular these days that we tend to forget the people out there who still like to have a top notch paint job with perfect fit & finish (a show car if you will), a style that some could say has now had it’s time. The following car might seem like it’s a bit dated in the exterior styling and wheel choice departments by today’s standards, but the owner’s passion and dedication to his car shines above and beyond any fashion based concerns. Watch as he resprays his car, then takes it back to bare metal and paints it a second time, playing close attention to panel gaps and shaping fiberglass parts to perfection, all while maintaining an enthusiastic attitude and enjoying the journey with his mates and girlfriend.
