Sooo things have changed over the past year and i thought id put together a quick picture timeline...

Back when it was black (-2009) :)


Then it got rear ended.. :(


So I made an 'ice cream paint job' thread about how i painted it flat khaki primer :rolleyes:


It was alright... :sly:


And the packers won the super bowl! :D


Then there was a local show, and some crazy canadians showed up! :cool:


They said I should come to waterfest because it was unreal.
"Okay" i thought... but i need to step my game up. :(
My car was
  • Primer
  • Automatic
  • Not low enough


Sooo... I went to work :wave:


I drove to Cincinnati to meet some cool dude named Corey to pick up a transmission since mine sucked.. :)


And EBC sent an awesome care package cause my brakes suckeddd.. :heart:


And waterfest was coming up, so my buddy matt and I made a mad dash to finish thursday night, test drove it until we found 6th gear and got some sleep to head to jersey the next morning. :eek:


After waterfest I knew I had to paint my car finally so i came home, and matt the painting guro went to town! :cool:


thanks matt! ..i still owe you :beer::beer::beer:

flat is in. behold: Vintage Burgundy Pearl by Hot Rod Flatz



I got a little nutty with the headlights..


Somewhere along the line I picked up an air ride system but i have yet to re run the wiring and plumbing in a clean fashion. I also moved to Detroit and havent really had much free time since the move, but hope to get home to pick it up in the up coming weekends.

Here's some pictures taken by a friend from school of it currently, and a new mk2 friend :thumbup:






Rubstrips, Air, something with the roof rack all to come, and a new axle and tying up loose ends..

cheers! :beer:
