    according preludepower they are the same, ebay doesn't have any tokicos for 3g anymore, but do your own research anyway

    Thanks guys...
    Sean your right, the amazon price is amazing, but they dont deliver to Australia.... I tried
    FYI according to the Tokico data base they are the same.
    As money is tight for the next few weeks, I think I have to do the rounds of the wreckers to see what I can find...

    I'll probably just end up putting the 91' shocks on the white one (if they are ok)
    When I do the h22 in the 91' I'll end up putting in some adjustables.

    *** UPDATE ***
    TOO much work.... Its killing me, Double shifts and then day shift followed by night shift....
    It sucks being understaffed.....


    The white one is officially out of rego and I just been working too much to get into it,
    I have had a windscreen guy pop the screens out (in both the white one and the 91').
    I did cut and plate the rust around the back screen and fuel filler.
    Its under putty, but had no time to prime and paint yet.
    I guess I'll somehow get it done soon as I called the windscreen guy to come this weekend to put the screens in.
    It will get a new front one, but the back are not stocked by his regular supplier, so I am putting the 91' in, it looks better.

    Body Kit.
    I called Carmate to check on the kit, as I want old school I have my heart set on his B style kit,
    (which looks identical the the USC one I had in the 90's)
    I thought that I would have to wait to get it... a few weeks to get it made up... but I was told 3 months...
    I think that's crazy, I can get one made and delivered from the states in 3 weeks.
    But after hours of looking I could not find a supplier that supplied the same,
    I did think that the kaminari is great, and am considering it,
    But there are slight differences that make me want the carmate one over the kaminari.
    Still thinking about it.... I probably will go the carmate and just wait
    Has anyone used Carmate before?

    Will Carmate allow you to test-fit before you hand over $$ ??
    Some of their products fit well - others can look like a tiger's tail on an elephant.

    Nope, he wanted half up front then I had to wait 2-3 months to see the product....
    But that's OK I have plenty experience making things fit.
    On my Prairie I built a full body kit, half fiberglass half steel.

    It's my fault, if I had the forethought 15 year ago I should of got USC to make me half a dozed kits LOL
    I should of know once you fall for a 3g you are hooked for life.....

    ***Update***

    So I did it, I went down to Carmate and ordered the bodykit.
    Put half down and now I wait 2-3 months (if it comes)
    Here's hoping that the guys in china are still making it.

    The last time one was ordered was 1.5 years ago, and that was just the front.
    There is a real danger that if they dont continue to get orders that they will
    destroy the molds to make room for others.
    I almost ordered 2 sets


    B-Style, from this crappy photo it looks like the old USC one.


    The 90's USC I had

    I have a kit (Front bar and sides) that is very much like USC one I am now parting ways with as I am putting my project car and parts collection up for sale until I can afford to do it.

    Its in pretty good nick and apart from shipping I wont be asking the eartth for it. Let me knnow if you are interested.

    I will be posting a for sale thread shortly and can have some pictures for you over the weekend.

    Good luck with the build - hope it works out well for you!

    Well, thank Christ that the rain has stopped for a bit.

    OK... I finished the rust, and have finally got the windows put back in (front new and back off the '91)

    So now I am going to give it a quick respray and wait for those spoilers to come in.
    but soon I'll be hoping to driver it as my daily.

    Unhappy

    *** UPDATE ***

    Bummed out
    So after spending a few grand to swap the motor (also got the belts and gaskets change)
    I did the rust work (plated it and all)
    and then I decided to give her a full paint job.

    But
    she has been waiting... waiting for what.... well a bit for me to find time
    But mostly for the body kit.......
    I bought it from carmate and they said it will be about 2 months....
    Well.... 8 months have past and the container finally came from China...
    OK

    Then when I call them they tell me that they only have the front skirt....
    That the back skirt did not fit into the container.
    (That me putting the order in 8 months ago did not assure me priority when they packed the container)
    Then I got a.... by the way.... They cant make your side skirts as one side mold was thrown away.....
    No..... they could not tell me this 8 months ago....


    I honestly think I am going to paint it,
    Put on a modern style kit I picked up a few weeks ago,

    And SELL HER!!!!!
