this is after I lowered it the "economic way" I had cut the springs... another dumb mistake of mine but I was young and dumb and having fun..

cutting springs works if you get it aligned right. I got some camber bolts for the front and it went perfect. fixed my gas mileage about 5mpg too! I drove without it aligned and it burned right through the inner edge of one of my tires.

an expensive lesson to get your car aligned!!

Then I went and bought a wings west lip kit and painted it myself. Didn't turn out too bad for my first time using HVLP..

took the hood of to paint rubberized undercoating on the inside to quiet down the sound :) couldn't resist and i had to take a picture of it...
