Last month I got some awesome stuff from the Likewise guys for the S13.
Early June I was speaking to Jordan and Ben about putting some bits on my car to make certain things stand out a little more. If you have seen anything from Likewise, you will know how much attention it attracts, even more so when they do a custom colour to match your ridiculous interior!
Let’s start with the packagaing, even the boxes they come in are rad.
If you are a long time follower of the S13, you would have noticed that the car has always had mismatched wheel nuts. In the entire time I’ve owned the car, I have never bought a set of wheel nuts until now. Whenever I had to move it around, I would just borrow some off the 180sx and use whatever else I had laying around at the time. Most of it’s life was spent on 3 wheel nuts per side! It was a shitty idea but it wasn’t one of my main concerns when I was building everything else.
Now that I’ve got a fresh set of Royals, that means there is one less thing to borrow from the 180sx. Still got the seats though!
Not only are these awesome looking bits, I think it’s the colours that make this perfect for my car. I asked the boys if there was a possibility of anything similar to my colour scheme and they had the perfect answer for me. The green is almost identical to my interior so there’s no chance it will look out of place.
As for the top half of my shifter, The Nad, I wanted something basic. I’ve always liked to keep my driving tools as simple as possible. I like basic gear knobs and a simple steering wheel, nothing super crazy. The Nad is small, smooth and best of all it looks awesome.
Usually it replaces your factory handbrake button to hold the locking claw up if you want to go drifting. Seeing how I don’t have a factory handbrake, that option doesn’t apply. Instead, I’m going to use it as my new nitrous purge button on my dash, which I think is equally as cool!
I couldn’t be happier with this stuff, especially the new shifter setup. Looking forward to getting the car back soon so I can fit all the pieces and test everything. I think I’m more excited to play with the nitrous purge button than anything else. Must be 9 year old Oliver trying to live his Need for Speed Underground dreams.
Either way I love everything!
If you are keen on anything from Likewise, head to – wearelikewise.com – and have a look around. They make adaptors to suit heaps of applications and have a bunch of ridiculous names for each one of their shifters. Best of all, they are currently building a brand new car with all of their gear.
Thanks dudes, this stuff will get used and taken care of!
