STEP UP YOUR STYLE GAME

FOUR YEARS AGO, I HON­ESTLY THOUGHT THAT THE WIDEBODY TREND WOULD HAVE BEEN COM­PLETELY FIZ­ZLED OUT, BUT HERE I AM, BACK FOR PASMAG'S FOURTH IN­STALL­MENT OF THE STYLE BOOK, WHERE WIDE HIPS ON CARS ARE STILL TAK­ING CEN­TER STAGE. NOT TO SAY THAT THE GAME HASN'

ince the V1s of Rocket Bunny and Lib­erty Walk ar­rived on the shores of North Amer­ica, Kei Miura has been pump­ing out de­signs, in­creas­ing in width and com­plex­ity with each year. It's no se­cret that they've be­come more and more pop­u­lar among en­thu­si­asts, and so to stand­out, en­thu­si­asts are reach­ing for the more ex­clu­sive kits, or even kit-bash­ing dif­fer­ent kit bits to cre­ate their own look al­to­gether.

Our two fea­ture ve­hi­cles are great ev­i­dence of this. On the cover is Peter Pang's Nis­san R35 GT-R don­ning BenSo­pra's rare widebody. Yes, the one with the tilt-up cowl hood. With the right pieces on the car swapped out and up­dated where needed, we think (and we may be a lit­tle bi­ased here) that this is the best that this kit has ever been pulled off. Doesn't that shade of red look like it was made for the kit on this car?

SAlso wear­ing red is Drew Evans' In­finiti G37XS, but this is more of a Mar­tian shade, as his fas­ci­na­tion with space is a driv­ing fac­tor be­hind his build. Evans is an en­thu­si­ast who wanted to stand­out, and with no sedan widebody op­tions, he made Lib­erty Walk's coupe kit work with some tal­ented fabri­ca­tion. The G37 is tied to­gether with choice parts, in­side and out.

Speak­ing of which, if you're af­ter your own selec­tion of choice parts, we just so hap­pened to have stocked our buy­ers guides with them! Car care, ex­te­rior and in­te­rior ad­di­tions, sus­pen­sion, light­ing, wheels, and tires are all present and ac­counted for. Get your wish lists ready.

We also spoke to pro­fes­sion­als in the in­dus­try to an­swer some ques­tions we had. Like, what's the story with Ro­ti­form and how do they do what they do? Or how about­bout what to think about whenen do­ing and shave and tuckck job? Choos­ing a set of cus­tom coilovers got you fraz­zled?ed? We've got all that and more in this is­sue.

We hope you en­joy thehe is­sue and make a few notes otes to up your aesthetic game. me. We're ex­pect­ing 2017 too be one hell of a stylish sea­son­son as a re­sult!
