Anya chillin with Miragesmack's Classy Sedan.
-I'd post a picture of how classy it is on the inside... but then I'd have to kill everyone who saw it.

I'll throw some more stuff up later when I'm not so busy with sleeping and all that.

I like this, Your work shows itself. Some people don't realize little steps or the little things make the biggest difference's. I will say i'm not a big fan on the unpainted SAP wing, idk if it's because not matched or because body style. I feel like a different set of wheels would do this car wonders though. I like where this is going.

I wouldn't change a thing man. I like the low :P

MotorcityJAX 08-16-2012 06:28 AM

Looks great! I love those wheels. Could you post some interior shots please?

djwrg04 08-16-2012 01:20 PM

Thanks guys! And Pyroinsa I'll get some pictures up tonight after I'm done with fixing things.

Today is my "Fix everything that will F up before going back to college day!"

Things to fix:
-Nearly snapped rear LCA
-Front bumper seems loose
-Grind off rust on rear sway bar & paint it

Here's what my rear passenger side LCA looks like right now:

I plan on doing the euro side markers and a modded 05-07 sap rear bumper.

I want to stick with the 2000-04 rear end styling so I will have to bondo/weld/mod the 05-07 to fit my year and look good. I was thinking about doing the SVT rear style, but the rear diffuser of the 05-07 ST looked way more aggressive and robust which really attracted me to it the more I saw it.
