View Thread: would i be a ricer if.......


k6kicker
i got fiberglass "eyelids" for my s14 that amke it look like the s14a headlights..ill search for some examples but so far it doesnt seem too bad, and fot only 80 bucks or so (much less then grand i would sink into it to do a front end swap)

k6kicker
i wish i could find a pic of these on something other then riced out s14's ;(

They arent toooo bad, but I wouldnt suggest it. :ghey:

imho, as far as there are no other rice components you have nothing to worry about. i actually kind of like the way it looks.

My :rice: theory is as follows. I can normally overlook one or two items that some would consider rice as long as the rest of the car is clean. Make darn sure they match the paint of the car exactly. If they blend in, it'll look sweet!

k6kicker
yeah i was going to repaint the car soon anyways, theres some rock damage on the hood (fucking semi) so i was looking into either an s14a front end swap ($$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$) or these...bomex makes a very sharp looking fiberglass set...honestly it just looks like an s14a (which doesnt seem rice to me)

mustangdriver
The Bomex stuff is pretty good and if it's cheaper than stock, what the hell. I don't consider a JDM "update" rice, especially if it comes out looking as cool as the Silvia does.

How does it affect headlight performance? Would it make a sharp cutoff far down the road?

i think if you have to ask if your a ricer, then you are

k6kicker

On a similar note, looking back it's pretty funny, but when I first got my Grand Prix GT in 1998, I bought "blackout" headlight covers.

Those were actually relatively popular then. But, I haven't even seen a car with them in like 4 years.....

mustangdriver
YES! I had a black 96 Z28 with blacked out headlight and taillight covers. I think it looked pretty badass! :D
