The good news. I got the progress pictures uploaded. Basically what I'm doing is shaving off the side indicators on the front bumper. I installed the Led strips on the sides of the finder and have to trim them in with bodyfiller. I've also put a sheet of plastic where the indicators were so that I have a solid backing for when I bodyfill the gap. It's still a work in progress but it's a start and I'm absolutely loving how it looks when the lights are on (ignore the Leds in the headlights, I'm still experimenting with those.




And the bad news. The rear of the car has been making a grinding noise since Monday and on the way to work today, the rear end started wobbling. I picked the back up and the drivers side rear wheel just hangs there flopping around. It feels like the only thing holding it on is the brake calipers. I was able to limp it home but it looks like the car is going to be sitting for a while until my dad and I can figure out what's wrong and fix it. I miss the car already.
