TUN3D 135i build (1M Conversion)

Thanks to ilikebmxbikes, Sk8fe, Venom, EINSER M, Mybad135, Tony135, uberschnell, and a few others for answering my questions in regards to this project. Not reinventing the wheel here, just another boring 1M conversion -- haha! Hopefully some of the pics will help the next guy in line -- so lets get to it.

Note: I broke this build into different sections/threads. The page was getting so big that even I had trouble following or finding things at times. This conversion has many phases. I've done my best to group them in a manner which is easy to understand and navigate.

This is the goal. I want to get as close to this as possible...

Send a message via AIM to SfValley335i
Dtm fiberwerks is a local small company in LA. Seems like they took the Kerscher bumper and made their own mold from it.

infinitekid2002 > I didn't do this myself. Body-shop is on it as we speak.

SfValley335i > Yup. I wonder how these two are related.

greensto > The chip was really small. The minute I saw the bumper I knew it was going straight to the shop. I've done fiberglass kits before enough to know that it wasn't going to be a problem.

ASPEC135i . Agreed.

=====================

More images are coming guys. I did a fitment test myself (which is what you see in my signature), the minute I got the bumper. It was on point. I'll post images of that shortly along with my solution for the ducts. I'm waiting for OSS to wrap up my headlights by Friday morning so I can drop it off for final fitment before paint. Got the blessing from Einser M to go BloodShot! Finish will be over gunmetal with a black-out (shit is gonna be serious).

I35it > No worries, thank you for checking it out! I'll be refining the comments as I go. At the latest I should have the everything back from the body-shop and mounted by Monday/Tuesday.
