    Musō Pitcrew fastback

    Next to Kenshin I've decided to do another build. But I wanted to this build a bit different. Like painting without a canvas.... First hoarding all the stuff I need to shape this "dream" and end with the car, instead of the other way round. Hence the title: reversed build.

    So what is already here:

    exterior:
    Pitcrew nose conversion
    Bodyshop Hayashi taillights
    Carbonmiata shorty bumper
    Carbonmiata smooth rear panel
    Simpsong design Turbo hood
    Zoom engineering turnsignals
    chromed windowwipers
    HCD fastback (actually ordered)
    Autoblaze bulletmirrors
    Tuckin99 N2 flares
    Panasport G7 wheels
    Runabout type 2 fuel lid
    Project-G vented quarterwindows

    Interior
    Full quilted nakamae set (black with red stitching)
    Nakamae doorhandles
    Nielex tombstone
    Nielex toggleswitches
    Nielex e-brake cover
    Cobra style rearviewmirror
    KGworks gaugepanel
    Fast5 thick gaugerings
    Some genuine roadster floormats
    Nardi classic steeringwheel
    Nardi Tokyo hornbutton
    Aluminium doorcards

    Performance:
    Ansa Marmitte center double exhaust (Jasma)

    Well that's it for now, pictures will follow. Just wanted to get this thread started ;)

    So for now I think this will be part of my interior setup. Nielex goodies!

    And this the setup for the back:

    And these wheels, but they will also need some attention:

    The reversed build just turned in a regular build. So things are going a lot faster now. Seeing results!
    And then there's this luxury problem. Just ordered a fastback in Greece, then the bodyshop owner turns up with an AK fastback. It just looks so good!

    Looking fantastic! Hope this AK fastback is better than most as your typical AK fastback needs lots of finishing and fitment adjustments...

    Well this hardtop isn't mine yet. So can always compare with the Hardcore design version from Greece. That's already paid for! And then there's also a third option...... ;)

    Love the fastback!
    I like moving the number plate to the bumper. It really changes the character of the rear end.
    Did you fabricate that?

    No, I wish I could. But there's this guy that can do magic with 5's. Did a lot of conversions, like Italia's. So he's doing all the bodywork. He's the guy with the NB coupe/hardtop.

    Will try to do that. Third option is the NB coupe hardtop the guy is making by the way.

    Looks epic already. Please, please modify the hood/bumper, I love how it looks with a continuous curved cut.

    That is exactly the plan, but still have to get the Simpson design hood to the shop.
