The car you love to hate....the build thread.
 
I made one of these forever ago most of the pics don't work anymore and it was long winded. So here is a updated one for your viewing pleasure.


Ok I'll start with the day I bought it in Sept. 2009.

My first mod came in march of 2010 with SVT Black housing with 8000k H4s.

The next mod came in summer of 2011 with a set of wheels and tires from a fellow FF member.

18" ASA JH2 with BFGoodrich G-force KDW2s.

The rest of my mods all came quick between winter of 2011 and current.

-SVT grille came next.

Then I finally got around to doing some decent shots with the car.

Then came some smoked side markers.

Next came a shorty antenna and a cone filter.

It seems like the front was missing something so I went with some OEM fogs and a custom SVT grille.

Not a bad looking SPI you got there

mikebontoft 04-27-2012 07:42 AM

clean up that engine bay bro, it's making me sad......the rest looks great...... I'd do dirty things for those tires.

Wow I very noticed the SVT lower grill, they should have done that straight out of the factory! Nice work!!!

Give me your 18s!!! I mean it this time!!!

Still looking great. [thumb]

awesome SPI bro. I like the mods,you have definetly put the effort in it. If you really wanted to take it to another level,I would recommend painting parts of the engine bay, It will really make the spark plug wires and cone filter stand out more. That's what i did with mine, my battery and fuse box are painted amazon green to match the exterior,and the valve cover I'm getting ready to paint chrome. It gives it that aftermarket showcar look without spending lots of money. I did mine with my dad,we did the engine and parts of the interior like the gauge bezels,a/c vents and center console. the whole project only cost me $30 for 3 cans of spray paint and 1 can of clearcoat. you could can get it from autozone. just an idea, good luck and enjoy the car bro.[headbang]

not bad at all. i love the pic with the shotgun shells. also where did you get the lights and how much? i wouldn't mind getting some darker housing and def hid's.

WiscoGTI 04-27-2012 10:43 AM

This car.. with those wheels.. is really starting to grow on me.

And I'm not a fan of chrome, at all. Unless it's on SUV's or 300C's lol. [thumb]
