when is the final product expected? this thing will look great when its done! been there with bumper placement. had the same issue on one of my older cars. got a nice body kit, the rear bumper and side skirts were perfect but the front bumper was slightly wider then the car. couldn't afford the additional body work just had them paint it. most people didn't notice, but i did but i bet yours wont be noticeable since there actually modifying it for you. I'm sure it will look great when its all said and done

thanks michael, hopefully within the next two weeks yea i wouldn't be able to bear with any flaring.. so ive been making trips to the shop for some sanding and prepping to kind of alleviate the cost.. been a while since i got so dirty lol but its worth it. I mounted the svt bumper already, just have to make the cuts for the dual exhaust.

all the rear quarter panels are done all dents are done, all holes have been filled.

the inside of the engine bay has been painted with the same kind of white the car will be.

the plan is this week work on cutting the front bumper and making an new mold, cutting the svt rear diffuser to accomadate for a dual exhaust, and hopefully paint the car... Im just waiting on a couple pieces including the FC hood, and some brackets to come in the mail and then the car gets put together by the end of next week.. The timeline keeps getting pushed but not much i can do.. been going to the shop almost every other day to get some work in.

not much but here is some pics of the progress.. the rear quarter panels were riddled with holes.. I wasn't aware that the person that mounted my mid wing used nails to hold it in place... never even bothered to ask.. but that is all taking care of.

if you look closely where the mid wing would mount you can see em.. as well as the rear quarter panels... smh.. i swear.. this is what happens when they tell you they can do something for cheap and it seems to good to be true.. i blame myself, i should of inspected closer, but the car was sitting for 7 years, didn't think much of it.




this is how they mounted it too.. check out the midwing.. smdh
