I think it's more like the SoCal GaNgStA style.

I had never actually seen peter's trunk lid...he's obsessed with photos but now I can see why he wouldn't really be too into posting up pictures of it...there's no way he could defend it from people on the internet...might be able to sway people IRL but it looks pretty bad to me.

Oh and I think he's rocking a black finish panel as of now.

I thought about rocking the black finish panel years ago....then i discovered CR.net and decided against it....at least I wasn't about to spend the $180-200+ to buy a JDM one that say Eunos....

I've never heard of CR.net but I think after five minutes of reading it I'd be ready to drink a bucket of Clorox.

People told that guy his exhaust was good? Why would you even build that exhaust? To have worse performance than stock? Just because it's loud and sounds like **** doesn't mean it works better. The whole thing is full of diameter changes and hard edges, would anyone actually think that would flow well? And the tip, which was probably the whole point, looks like **** at that severe angle. It looks like he backed into a high curb.

I think I might try to find a white finish panel in good condition my stripe paint is all messed up there anyway.

While certain parts of Peter car I do like, I most certainly can't really stand up for CR.net as i think there is a large collection of asshats who spend too much money on nothing and make themselves elitists for it.

The black finish panel makes it look like the aborted fetus of a cop car.

You guys need to get laid. The trunk is still in it's early stages, he's going for the "industrial" look that the VW guys have been doing for years. After a awhile, the whole trunk will have a copper-rust finish. To each his own, I'm not a fan of chrome style-bars and racing stripes, but I'm sure they're not idiots.

As for the Holmes Depot exhaust, that's not vindictive of all CR.net members,haha. Definitely ***.

OK I'll get laid tonight.

See the trunk, as it is, looks like it was pulled off a rotting corpse of a car. I can't tell from pictures what his plans are.

Is he doing some mad max copper with visible rivets or some such? Copper's a nice metal when it's polished. when it's not, it's pale green like an old statue. he must have vision.
