Sweet Christ!
I'm no longer deployed!!!! Woooot!

The car has shipping arranged.
Should be here this month.

Cannot fooking wait.
One plus side to this..
It's been soo long in the tooth to wait to get the car here, there are funds allocated to throw at it.

So, balls & $$$$ hahahaha

Updates to come.

Scored a mint condition hood to replace the one on my car, which had a ton of hail damage.
I had quite a bit of filler on it to smooth over all the dimples.



And finally have some nice door pockets. After not having a drivers side door pocket for 13 years! hahaha

Thanks!
It's a US spec bumper, pushed in as far as it would go.
I also modified the metal rebar that the skin attaches to, go get the bumper to sit in a few extra inches, just like the Euro spec.

I'll get euro spec front and rear eventually when I find a decent deal on a set.

I like that a lot! 2Bennetts quoted me just for a new front bumper and all the accessories for $2800. I know what you mean by finding a deal. Yikes. On the rear they have a way to shorten it similar to what you did. Haven't figured out how to do it yet but I'm going to look into it. Looks good.

Brrr... Snow. It's 84° here today. Happy Thanksgiving Sepp. Cheers!
