Nice hood risers, troglodyte. Black wheels look like **** on dark green cars.

What is it about humanity that when a few people get together to criticize another person those few people become an angry lynchmob?

You can't come to the Mos Eisley Spaceport of car forums with hood risers and expect everything to go OK.

The forum also has a few bad qualities.

Agreed on the silver wheels, but it could just be the pics. At least it was plasti-dipped so he can go back if he decides to.

I actually really like his car, but the clubricer hood risers kill any car i see them on. If OP likes it, i guess that's all that matters though. Just a quick note for the OP, those risers were found to not be functional at all for the purpose of heat extraction.

Car looks great with the changes!

But the order of your pictures seem to be reversed. Need to fix that.

bro, it's really important that the engine bay doesn't get hot, even if it means to marginalize the cooling system.

Duh, that's why I didn't put the plastic undertray back on after doing my suspension. To get more air on the engine to cool it down.
