I just bought it the other day for $300.00 big ones. The car runs great, brakes and tires are awesome. The outside sucks, the a/c doesnt work, the gas light is always on empty, the rear windows dont go down, and the shocks are bad. But overall nice.

I know this thread might not be as cool as others but I will try. :)

I Ran Out of Primer and it Got dark, so Flat white paint will have to do:



Front End:


This is all Day one. Day two and three are going to be in one post. I am trying to do all the body work myself, but i do not have time to paint, due to full time work/ school. Plan to paint in Imola Red.
I have ordered a Rear plastic Bumper, Sunroof in process, and passenger door. All i need is the front bumper, valence and is lip for the car to go into paint.

front end delete mod = FTW :shhh:

Good work though must be a fun job and good price $300 is so clean what are the future mods? And Imola Red :str8pimpi
You should see the front now, :shhh: , LOL

The car is going to be a DD, so nothing crazy for now. I want it slammed on 16'x8's with 205 tires and the lowest offset possible, new paint, hids, vaders, and steering wheel and various is parts like the lip and spoiler..

When i get something else, S52 swap but not for a long time.

damn nice. congrats bro
