I haven't paid over $30 for anything SVT on my car. The most expensive was the lower grille i chopped up @ $28. Hell except wheels at tires ($500) I haven"t paid over a $100 for any of the parts on my car. I've got connections lol.

I just got done doing all of that with the rear. I had to completely remove everything. By time the rear crash bar would be shaved down, it would be less than an inch thick which really has no point. lol So I removed the whole bar, and replaced it with a piece of angle iron to keep the form of the bumper in case I bump into anything. I figured if I get rear ended one day, I would have to replace the hatch and bumper anyways. I was wanting a euro front, so i will definetly keep an eye out in this thread for progress and to see how hard it is. :) good luck!

Been a few months, quite a few updates.

Car had been repainted show quality. I stayed with oxford white! I also have doms rear control arms, massive toe arms, and added an RS collections replica and put tons of work into it to make it perfect for paint. I also shaved the side markers.
