don't really know why i never really posted a pic of this before...just a little "mod" i did quite a while ago.

i did the paint by hand...needs to be touched up a little bit now, but it still looks pretty good (i think).

also sanded/polished up my head lights with the 3m kit...came out pretty nice....pretty happy with that.

Got some pretty good plans for this year...the wheels are slowly coming along...my goal is to be done by sometime in June and have them on the car by the end of June...for whatever reason, my axle is on hitting the frame (i dont even think i'm that low), so i'm going to get the frame notched to get the fronts down some more....got a few other little things planned for this year...http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Here's a quick pick from today...nothing new there yet...the fronts look a little high, but hey are just about even with the rears (front might be a 1/8in higher, but whatever...i'll worry about fixing the stance once i get the frame notched).
Sorry for the crappy pic...didn't have a tripod to shoot with so i just had to use the flash....a slightly more proper photoshoot might happen tomorrow night.

Comment/critiques/whatever. Going to try and make it out to at least one big show this year (H2O or waterfest or something). See you guys around.

I work in the IT dept for a trucking company that has it's own shops in the terminals. I'm pretty good friends with the guy who manages the shop. We have plasma cutters/welders here so they are going to help me get it taken care of. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
