Default 22 May: 6am photo shoot

Here are a few shots...gotta wait till I get home to get the good ones uploaded.








Gimme some input on the shots. These are raw images shot with a d5000 through a 50mm lens and 18-55mm lens.

Maybe it's the size.. but they look blurry? Car looks nice though. Not sure how I feel about the turn signal color choice.

Yes it is an oil cooler I just zip tied in for the time being. Thanks.


Also I tried to do some flash fill but my built in flash didn't have enough to do anything productive. Just thought I'd throw that out there because if I was looking at these pics that's the first thing I would recommend...and a graduated neutral density filter

Yeah, only for the photoshoot. Sucks to drive so when I get home I will be finishing adjusting the suspension (ie putting it to a useful/drivable height). I dragged my butterfly brace on the road over where the car died when we first took it out. I also got pulled over for the exhaust being too loud :(

Here is before I got everything put back in:



Here is after it was running:



I figured that is what those were for, up next is some proper ducting.

Not sure if I like the bumper or not, but the car looks great.

Undecided on the bumper but it doesn't really look bad. What is it?

That's next...gotta get her running well first. I also need to dial the suspension in again and rhino line the interior.

I have been thinking if something takes my bumper out I will get a stock bumper and chop it up. The flare crap on the bottom of my bumper doesn't go with the rest of the car. Seemed like a good idea in my 24/25 yr old mind...not as good in my 28 yr old mind.
