The "Before" pictures...
 
I decided to take pictures of my car in its crappiest condition yet. This is because my car will be undergoing repairs and transformations for the next two weeks. Most of my problems came when we had that ice storm in Tulsa that immobilized the entire town for a week cuz it wouldnt melt and kept on coming. Anyways, I had to drive through it and ended up seriously screwing up my car.

I took these pictures earlier and if it looks like I took some crappy quality pictures, thats because it was done intentionally to emphasize its embarassing state, lol. No worries though cuz if everything goes to plan, it will look much better...



Im sure you can guess what my mods will be since I took each picture for a reason...




View from the front. Notice the bottom portion of my bumper...

Another view of the bumper damage...

Cracked foglight lens. It also does not work because the wires were ripped out during the storm...

Multiple areas of paint chipping and scratches from the ice...also notice the bottom panel thats just dangling there. Thats where my foglight wiring harness was ripped out along with two other panels that went missing...

My headlight lens has been scratched since I got the car. That will change....

There is a reason why the grill is in this picture....

There is a reason why I got the wheel and the fender in this picture....these wheels are just a little too plain for me...and the fenders need some DC5 love...

The bottom side portion of my car looks so lonely....

I blew out this tire two days ago on the highway doing 65 mph. The donut...along with all the other wheels, won't be on there for long...

My rear bumper looks too plain...

Wow, that's rough. At least you still got heart and are going to restore (not to mention improve) the crap out of it.

Doesnt look that bad. Lots of good stuff on the way. Whats ur plans with the fenders though- what u mean by dc5... ohhhh I get it.. lol I was thinking your fenders are like the handelbars to your bike, and maybe hes getting some pom-poms for them.. and then it hit me. 330am, shhh. Good luck bro.

so to summarize..... you're getting sidemarkers, a lip kit all around, repainting the car, new fogs and headlights? lol

Very good guess, lol. Along with all that, add a new front bumper, fresh tires for my Rota's, and color matched hood trim. So far, thats all I can afford for now...
