Sorry to hear about the crash mate hope everything works out with the car and there isn't to much internal damage. Was curious what suspension you have on the car? HKS or TEIN? I saw the pics further up in the discussion but couldn't figure out what's in there. What is the current ride height and what size wheels do you have?

Wheels are 19x9 +35 with current summer setup of 245/40 for rubber. I'd have to measure my ride height at the top of the fender for you to know how much lower I went with the HKS I have on now. I have my teins to a fellow 5thgenlgt owner so I'll ask him to measure his for comparison since we run the same tire.
Be a few weeks before the repair is finished.
Worked out a deal to have the rev A-C front bumper and jdm hood to be used instead. I'll let the cat out of the bag and tell you all in losing the GT hood and going NA because in going FMIC for more sleeper status

Sweet thanks if you could let me know the drop in height that would be awesome.

I'm looking atm with options for suspension so this will give me a good idea. Do you mind me asking what you picked the HKS up for?

NA bonnet or not it's on sweet looking legacy and will look even more dope with a FMIC. When I get around to it i'll make a proper profile page 8) .
Oh and when you get the FMIC let me know if you end up going custom fabrication.

Going custom fabrication on the FMIC, no current vendors in the states do anything aftermarket. Then again there are less than 3000 GT's between 2010-12, so demand is low. From what I know of searching Aussiland, Russia, and the phillipines I've yet to come across a FMIC that was pre-made. All have been 'one off' fabrications.
Luckily for me those HKS coils are about 2grand. Way I came across them one of the owners of Nameless Performance purchased 2sets for his legacy. One for shop car and one for personal, and when they got there he saw they were for a 5thgen and not a 4th. So sold one set to a guy I know who used them less than 5000miles and then traded in his car. So I bought them from him for 900. Turned out in my favor and I love them. Going from entry level coils to higher quality is a significant difference handling.

JDM conversion complete!!
-FMIC will be underway this winter with the help of a good friend that is a subie nut and has a fabrication company.

-Some other cosmetic changes will take place too, I need new side mirrors along with a new windshield. Engine bay might see a few things to be powdercoated. Brembos ate going on this winter or spring. And my wheels setup will be listed for sale too. Less is more approach is going to be happening on the outside,then go bonkers with the engine build.

Glad to see the mods will continue :). Quick question you might to able to help me with. The aluminium grill behind the front bar is that actually connected to anything? And if so does it need to be moved or removed to install a FMIC?

If you're meani g the crash bar behind the bumper,then yes it will be cut. More than likely we'll make some tubular supports to hold it.
