BG Astina - Period correct stance project.

So this is my Astina. 1992 BG, SOHC 5 speed. Bought it for $500 to scoot around in while I got my AE86 restored, but temptation won me over and I started spending money :/

So this is how I got it after a wash.













Then I bought some SSR Viennas. 14x6 +36 fronts, +28 rears.





Want to put 155/55s on them though.

Quickie in front of a church.



Painted the centers black, think I might do gun metal grey centers though. Once the tyres are screwed from skids (yeah, she smokes up surprisingly, any bets on how long my CV's will last? ) I will put 155/55s on and invest in coilovers to stance it a bit.







Also after an SP front end to get rid of the ugly mazda badge in the middle of the front.

Ahh thanks for clarifying Just have to find one. Trying to find a place that will do cheap colour-matching so I can re-spray the new one and touch up the scratches and scrapes as well as colour-match the center 323 garnish on the rear.

Apart from the front badging, what else is different between the series one and two?

Well from memory there is some dash parts that are different. The series 1 has the mirror electric adjustment switches under the radio where in the series 2 has it located where the dash light dimmer is. Hmm i think thats it lol apart from the front grill was different.
