By the way, big thanks to Venom and Ilikebmxbikes. True inspirations. And yes, those are oem 1m quarter panels and yes, this will be a DIY conversion.
YES!!!! I know you will be able to go bigger and more hardcore than I did! Can't wait to see what direction you go with the rear quarters! Best of luck buddy! Feel free to bug either of us anytime on AIM or through PM

Unfortunately I don't. It was all REALLY rushed for SEMA. But because it was rushed, I never had it painted on the quarter panels until recently. I have a picture of the wrap off the quarter panel where you can clearly see it was a direct QP replacement. I'll post it up in a few!

+1, tony and sk8fe made me pull the trigger, not to mention everyone else telling me to go for it in my feeler thread. This has been a great project and we will continue to see more 1M widebody 135i's especially with the 1M market prices climbing.

Awesome thanks! Didn't this raise the cost of the body work substantially since you had to cut out all the old panels?

Are these all 135i's with 1M conversions? I like them all each in their own way -- Badass!

No need to mow that lawn afterwards with all those low front-end splitters shaving the grass!

Very nice!

Still lov'n the color of your wheels. You need to find someone to paint a "ghost" image/graphic of Venom on your hood in that same color.

I agree!!! I've been trying to find a decal color to match but since it's a metallic powdercoat I haven't had much luck or its too expensive for a sheet.

Photoshoot :)

I met a local photographer, Ben Revzin, and got a couple of photos done of my car. His passion for cars helped me meet him through the Santana Row meets/facebook group.
Ben Revzin Photography
And his facebook page
and his IG accounts: BenRevzinPhotography LavishWhips

Ben did a quick shoot of my car in San Jose a couple nights ago and the pictures turned out superb.

Quick behind the scenes photo:
so much equipment!

Hope you guys enjoy them,
Venom

1. Angel Eyes


2. Blue


3. Dat ass


4. Clean side profile and Dackelone 's sticker
