Pic 1: This is how the ER34 looks like now
For quite a while, I've been itching to try to do some changes to the ER34's exterior. I love the clean look most definitely but am toying with a few ideas for the past couple of months. The problem with thinking too long is that one ends up with too many options and gets oneself confused. In my case, I am totally lost as to what should I do, so much so that I've gotten hold of too many parts due to my indecisiveness.
So in the past few months, I have collected and purchased the below:-
1) BNR34 Front Bumper
2) BNR34 Tommy Kaira Rear Bumper
3) BNR34 Aluminum Fenders
4) BNR34 Aluminum Hood
5) ER34 IMPUL 534S Front Bumper (modified to include nose)
6) ER34 Duke Racing Carbon Fibre Z-Tune Style Hood
7) ER34 Veilside VS D1-GT Carbon Fibre Hood
8) ER34 East Bear Front Bumper
9) ER34 East Bear FRP Hood
10) ER34 Origin Wide Fenders (+20mm) with Vents
So what are those options that rummaged through my head?

As you can see, I have all the necessary parts for a BNR34 look conversion. I can just bolt on the BNR34 Front Bumper, BNR34 Tommy Kaira Rear Bumper, BNR34 Aluminum Fenders and BNR34 Aluminum Hood.
Although it would look awesome but is not really my thing. Don't want to pretend to be a BNR34 when it is not one. So I guess those parts are now surplus.

Option 2Keep it as it is and just slap on the Duke Racing Carbon Fibre Z-Tune Style Hood. End of story. But I'm quite afraid of water seeping into the engine bay via those huge vents. And it rains a lot here!

Keep it as it is and just slap on the Veilside VS D1-GT Carbon Fibre Hood. End of story.
Pic 7: ER34 IMPUL 534S Front Bumper (modified to include nose)
Another option is to fit in the Japanese modified IMPUL 534S front bumper which sports a nose job. The same bumper on the ER34 now does not have that. With that nose, I can fit in the BNR34 Aluminum Hood, which will require BNR34 bonnet hinges and locks.

Or as with option 4, fit in the Japanese modified IMPUL 534S front bumper and top it off with the ER34 East Bear FRP Hood which will bolt straight on.
Fit in the East Bear Front Bumper and East Bear FRP Hood. End of story.
Pic 10: Origin Wide Fenders with Vents
On the Origin Wide Fenders with Vents, that can go in together with option 2 till 6. Still a bit unsure if I can accept that look.
As you can probably imagine, with so many options, one will tend to get confused and lost. So at the moment, the ER34 remains as it is until I figured out what to do. Perhaps you guys can give me some ideas? Comments appreciated. :)
