Default So I took a few pictures

Well, a friend of mine did today.


The car is nowhere near PHOTOSHOOT ready, it needs paint REAL bad, get the gaps fixed, as well as some body work.......


.....BUT its a nice day out and we figured what the hell

Enjoy my plasticwelded front lip that I just threw on (I'll install it properly in a few days)

I know I know, every other post is probably going to be: "HOLY **** STAGGERED WHEELS, EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW"


But I got them for a decent deal (from Vash), and they are STRICTLY for street use. Meaning they will not be used for any form of spirited driving whatsoever. They look decent I think. Can't complain.

I have another set for spirited driving that I will be throwing some sticky rubber on. It is not staggered

Looking good man! I was wondering when I was going to see a picture of them on.

I like the hardtop and the new front end as well. Coming together nicely dude!

Wait, what the hell happened? You had a white car, added a silver front bumper and a black hard top, then a silver lower lip? I'm guessing the lip doesn't go on your 2000 bumper then? Looks good, will look great with paint. Are you just painting HT and bumper? Or respraying the whole car?

I'm respraying the whole car with a different shade white, and doing the ht and pillars black.

I had the 99-00 front end. This is the 01-05 front end, which is why its silver. The lip is for the 01-05 front end, and came with the bumper.



Here's a picture I think a few more of you will enjoy

The wheels are ugly, but the rest will look good with paint.

Looks good, needs more black parts imo (wheels, trim pieces, tint. etc) to look great.

the car looks nice with the later front bumper and black reflectors, but your friend doesn't seem to know the slightest about photography composition.
