Re: Just A Few Pictures

Are there two different color fender vents on there? How come?

Car flows really well and that paint job looks flawless from the pics. But it's like walking behind a chick with a really great *** that you've never seen the face of. What's the bay look like?

Re: Just A Few Pictures

good job. I agree with clint...what does the engine bay look like? What kind of numbers are you putting down?

Minor fixes
1) the vents on the fenders don't match
2) the passenger side headlight is recessed and looks different from the driver's side?

Lol yeah, I was driving on the highway, and I guess a clip on the fender insert was broken and it flew off. I had and extra one laying around, so I threw it on but I haven't painted it yet

Well right now the engine looks horrible, but here is what is supposed to look like

No numbers yet. I want to run 10psi, but I need to get a boost controller first. Then I am going to re-tune it and hit the dyno.

Yeah, Iv'e sprayed and resprayed those headlight the 5 times and its just getting annoying, so I am going to get rid of them. I am going to put some oem headlights on it, but I haven't got a hold of any yet.

Re: Just A Few Pictures

gorgeous set up, you really see the work that went into that car.

i m curious about the hood gap, was your hood just not closed or is that how it sits. and the gap around the left headlight in the pic looks funny

but gorgeous overall!, great paint, loving the 2 tone, and im really glad you aint no ricer either, you should really be putting some serious numbers down when you get it tuned

Re: Just A Few Pictures

I have NO IDEA why that gap is there. I noticed it with my cf hood on so I took it off and put the stock hood on and it was still there. I dono I guess my bumper is causing it???????

Re: Just A Few Pictures

i would take off the bumper and check all the screws holding the light in, i can bet that one of them isnt aligned properly. at least get the two lights sitting properly together

and for the bumper-hood gap its prolly just your body kit, i dont think theres much you can do about that.

and i love the ghetto looking exhaust mani, lol! all rusted looking, throw some aluminum foil over that thing would ya?

Re: Just A Few Pictures

I think you need wheels other then black to set it off....Right now they just blend in and almost look like steelies. Could just be the pictures though. Other then that not bad - Not my taste, but at least it looks well done.

Yeah the picture doesn't really show off the rims that well, but regardless they do suck. I need to get some new ones. I have my eye on the tenzo dc-6 v2's

We put body filler over the dash, sanded it down, and then painted. It does look like glass though

Re: Just A Few Pictures

you should do a custom time attack with a colormatched ring around ur rim. Ur rims are soo damn dark that you need some detail on those. Looks like a nice show car though, enjoy.

Re: Just A Few Pictures

Yeah when I saw the volk time attacks, I wanted to do something like that, but with a green. But it would be way to hard to paint. I'd rather just get some black wheels with nice lip, and I want to stay away from the green. There is TO MUCH green. From now on everything that I put on the car is going to be black.

Oh and here are some pictures of the inside. They suck but whatever.






P.S. I just got my parts

Re: Just A Few Pictures

Ahah, the Revo is always a nice mod to do. It'll look much better than the stock oar you have in there now.

What's up with the auto cluster though? And what do you plan on doing about the airbag light? I've always been curious (but too lazy to search) about what folks do about that when they swap to an aftermarket wheel.

Did you do all the interior work yourself?

Re: Just A Few Pictures

Yeah I just put it in and is sooooo much better. It is perfect with the skunk2 shift ****.

Meh im not to worried about the lights. I have just about every light lite up already. SRS-CEL and probably the airbag light to because I don't have an airbag.

Most of the interior was done by my dad. Like all the prep and sanding. His friend is a painter so he got him to do the painting. I would have helped, but I was in school at the time

Re: Just A Few Pictures

it is very apparent that you put some serious work into your car and everything flows really well, the whole theme is carried throughout the car very well. there seems to be a few little things that others pointed out, but you seem to know and have a solid plan on taking care of them all. nice work.
