If you had to do it again, would you build the same car?
Definitely would do it again but now I’ve learnt heaps will take a different approach to things.

Are you apart of a club or crew with your car?
I’m apart of the @ookamigumi

Is there any part/mod on your car you had to do a few times, or installed and then removed?
Definitely the s14 kouki spoiler was a pain to get right.

Or the custom vented bonnet trying to get that correct in the steel factory bonnet wasn’t easy.

What is your favorite part on your car?
It’d probably have to be the spoiler just because it’s different and changed the whole look of the car.

What’s the best memory you had in your car?
It’d have to be the time my father thought it was an rx7 just for him to get in the car and then tell me it’s slow.
