King of JDM Porsche tuning

Some pictures of the king of Porsche tuning in Japan courtsey of one of my favorite blogs, Speedhunters. His name is Kei Nakai and to my surprise he started out being the leader of the infamous drift crew named Rough World that consisted of ae86s and jzx81s. Then from there he started Rauh Welt which is Rough World in German and the rest is history. I hope to someday meet this guy.

Chrome door handles

So today i decided to take off the heavy chrome door handles off the doors cause i will not be doing the chrome exterior trim theme. In place of these chrome door handles i will be purchasing lighter non chrome 993 door handles.

Future gauge set up

After stripping 90% of my car down i decided to put in the gauges for fun. The inspiration for tilting the gauges came from my ae86 corolla days when i use to flip through autoworks magazines on the regular.
