I mostly just snoop around on here, but I decided to post some progress pics of my car. Feel free to lend any sugestions, snide remarks etc. For a while I realy wasn't going to do anything with my car, but you'd be surprised how much time and how much your mood changes when you break off an engagement
Enjoy!

This is what I started off with




projektzwo kit straight from the classifieds

had to sand a bit to get the stone chips and cracks out

front primered, I know you love my baby compressor

had to hack the rebar a bit

the rebar really does damage to blades, but I probably should have used a metal blade too, oh well, the first side went thru like butter

hacked rebar mounted had to cut like 2.5 inches off. sanded that down and repainted in case the insurance man cometh

test mount

mounted up after sitting in the rain while I did brakes on a friends car

Again feel free to voice your opinion. The zwo kit looks alot better in person than in pics. Soon to come, full respray (obviously) next month. Some type of coilover setup, new wheels, and a nice rebuild of the motor as a car with 162,000 miles and counting should do more than look good

that bumper looks real good with the rigt wheels and color.


probably going to keep color the same, I'm really picky about jambs and stuff, and too lazy to prep and paint them all. Any suggestions on wheels that don't cost a gozillion dollars?

Not too bad. I think it'll look good in red.
