Hey everyone! i've decided to make a little build thread on my brother's V and my other projects. I'm helping him fix up the versa while im fixing up my civic and s12 at the same time.

Basically we bought a standard 1.8s brand new back in 08 since i was commuting from la to san bernardino almost everyday and my s12 was killing my gas.

After 2 years owning we decided we should fix it up since he wants it to look nice. he doesn't care for power, he just wants a clean looking daily.

here are some pics of his car







I got a good deal on these old school racing hart rims and will be put on the versa when we lower it.



So far the only mods he's done are the tiida badge and oem window visor

and here are pics of the civic and s12





i'll keep you guys updated with more pics of the versa as we mod it

I actually like the S12 and it looks in great shape. I would put a sound system in it 2 12", the Civic looks nice and the Tiida will look great with those rims and lowered.
it actually says Tiida, that's cool :thumb2:

I've been very curious abt jdm s12 s13 and s14 for quite a while.
What motor you have? How bad was mpg on commute?
IMO looks reeeeally good cuz it's not over-the-top, great in black:thumb2:08v

the motor is a stock vg30e. love the torque! lol

Love the s12 any more pics? Keep us updated with the v those rims will look good on it
i got more pics but its really old. i got featured as one of the readers ride in nissan sport magazine. its an old issue from last year but i'll find some pics form the photoshoot i did. Right now its at my buddy shop to get painted and rebuild. so it wont be black anymore.

looks nice man how low are you guys wanting to drop it.
we installed the tanabe springs.

So finally got some time to snap a few pics of the freshly lowered V with rims. My brother and i love the drop with rims. i Hope it settles a lil lower.

nice honda man. ive seen alot like that with similar rims. are u gunna do jdm fogs. ive been seeing more and more hondas doing that
the fogs are oem honda ones. I might be doing that jdm civic conversion later down the line but the price is pretty steep

do it! we knew when we first got the V we wanted to mod it but we couldnt do it funds are tight too but we both played the waiting game until we found the rims we wanted

was the s12 black? i haven seen the issue yet but i'll prob buy it since hes the only s12 i know that has an rb26 in it

What kind of rims are on the SI? Both cars look great, post some more interior shots and mods done.
they're ssr type-f. the interior of the V is stock and for the civic ive changed to shift boot and shift knob but i'll post pics of both

I plan on modding it but funds have been tight so I've focused myself on paying the car off. I'll get to modding afterwards. And yeah, the S12 is black...and boosted. This month's issue has a v8 350z and S2K so it should be easy to get ahold of.
