What do you think of my ride?

Here what it looks like now.



My car is kindof dirty in this pic but thats because it's been involved in two accidents within 5 days of each other. The first I hit a deer head on and the second one an older guy backed right into my drivers side door with an f-150.
Here's a pic of the accidents.



But, with the money insurance money i'm doin everything myself and putting a Buddy Club 2 body kit and a carbon fiber hood on. Then repainting the entire car. It's gonna be sweet. So tell me what you think.

damn dude that sucks. old people cannot drive. No joke. Today i was at a road side kind of restaurant with parallel parking and outside seating. I was sitting at a table literally a foot away from my car, and all of a sudden this old guy in a jag comes and tries to park in the spot behind me, so he pulls up and starts to back up. he angled his turn way to much and the front of his car hit my rear bumper 3 times. im not kidding i watched him hit my car 3 times and i got up and went over to his window. he tried to give me 2 dollars for the scratch he put on my bumper and i laughed in his face. he ended up giving me 60 and lucky him he owns a body shop. so hes going to fix it and i got 60 dollars. and the funniest part was that i was saying to myself in my head, "please hit my car please hit my car" and he did. lol. just sharing a little story.

Slam it, the only mod you should do after you fix up your car then use what ever is left over for the bodykit and paint.

Yea, I'm kindof glad that it all happened within 5 days because now I can do all the work at one time. I am goin to lower it, its just a matter of time and money. I have already fixed the door too. I found one in perfect condition from a salvage yard for $500 that was the same color of the car and had a tinted window. What are the odds of that. I've already ordered my body kit and CF hood so I'm just waiting on parts. I do have a question for some of you guys with CF hoods, are hood pins required with Seibon CF hoods. Just wonderin.

I would really like to put some Tein ss coilovers on it but that might take a while to save for those. What kindof springs do you have? How much drop? And do you need to get new struts when you put lowering springs on?
