Veilside Rear Bar: Throw or keep?

Veilside Rear - Chuck or Keep?

  1. Keep it! It's awesome and totally suits!

  2. Kill it with fire! It's horrible and scars small children!

  3. I don't care, I just like voting in polls.

    Well my engine has some annoying oil leaks from where I didn't take as much care as I should of when I put it all back together last time. So the logical thing to do is pull the engine out and respray the whole car :zlove:

    I currently have one of the less offensive Veilside body parts fitted, as seen below


    It does need a little attention where it was damaged by the last owner getting it onto a tow truck after the timing belt let go.

    I'm pulling the horrid side skirts off and replacing with some Kaminari, or Stillen or something. I'm not sure what they are, but they are quite nice and simple.

    I'm not too sure what I want to do with the rear bar. Should I chuck it, or keep and fix?

    Car will 95% be staying a similar red, and I doubt I'll put my comical carbon GT wing on.

    I'm on the fence, depends on the skirts.

    If its kaminari or one of the clean stillens then id go back to stock if you dont have a spare stock id say go for the twinz bar.

    Yeah, the new skirts are a very simple clean design. I don't want to pay the money for a twinz coz I'm a tight arse.

    If I had or could get a cheap bomex I would go that for sure.

    I'd hoik it. That's the C1 right? The C2 with the double diffuser-like fins looks pretty sweet, I'd love to see it shaved of the lumps on the side.

    Not 100% sure what I have. Google gives all sorts of answers...

    I found this one on Google, which was actually from a thread you made. You said it may be EC-1? Would look better without the ugly sticking-out bits on the side.

    bin it if your respraying the car, could you go a stock bar with a twinz bolt on diffuser? They're not that much shipped are they?

    im thinking about picking one up and seeing if air new zealand will put it in the cargo hold as my freight :p might get a couple and put em in a bicycle box.

    think they would survive the flight?

    Other than the sticky out bits at the bottom of the wheel arches it's fine, do you hate them enough to cough up for something else or not?

    That's the one! I agree completely (funnily enough that's what I said in that thread haha). I think that's the EC-1, yeah. I'd love to see it shaved of those side lumps.

    Don't see why they'd have an issue, probably just have to pay extra like if you take your surfboard, etc. Just go crazy packing them, loads of bubble wrap & maybe double layers of cardboard. Maybe cover up the outside of the box though, if they think its a bike frame or something they might not be super careful with it...

    awesome thanks :) flying premium economy with 64kg limit and the # of pieces shouldnt be an issue as its based on weight :)

    misszen Red ones go faster!

    Glad you gave me the option to kill it with fire Chrispy!

    I hate veilside - the worst by far

    Would,nt be so bad if you modded it - ran fibreglass under the exhausts etc but yeh better to kill it _ cant see it being modded well enough to look good - having said that - some people like the style - its purely personal - so I am sure you could get even fifty bucks for it rather than the fire sale - hey maybe you could even get them to take it off for you as well - (bonus - free work)

    Certainly enough people dont like it already to keep it I reckon based on polls

    I like your idea of going with Kaminari or Stillen - I think your on a winner there!

    Cheers oh cool one!
