alright guys, quick little update. ive been super busy with the end of the school year and trips and work but im finally getting a bit of time to spend on the car so ill show you a few of the small things ive recently done!
firstly, I finally got some good use out of that cheap carbon fiber wrap I bought a while back!


I think it actually looks really nice as long as it doesn't begin to peel.
also, some of you noticed that my rear hatch trim was black and not color matched so, I decided to fix that!
when I removed it however, I completely broke it so I had to pick up another one at a junkyard.
I sanded it down, then hit it with primer, base coat, and clearcoat.

then sanded the clearcoat with a 1500 grit automotive sandpaper. this will really give it that professional look! (looks dull for now)

and finally, hit it with my $5 yard sale buffer! (WIN)

and here it is!


that's pretty good for a garage paint job if you ask me! the 1500 grit wetsand really makes the difference between a mediocre result and a beautiful one. well, ive got more projects under way and I will continue working on them!

Alright well, I'm going off to college this week and unfortunately the car can't come along.. :( I figured I'd give one last post for a little while. I'm sure ill still do small things over breaks when I get the time though :P
Alright, I used a carpet cleaner to clean my interior. Looks alright

This is the water from the seats only. :P

Then I bought some mach HIDs from a member on here! I was a little scared they would look cheap but they really make the front end look nice imo. The wiring was a big mess though...


And they're in! I love them even though that took forever to get working correctly.. Oh and I took those dang eyebrows off because they look terrible.

And now that the headlights have blinkers, there's no need for the act grille so I put my custom one back on!

Painted little things here and there




And that's it! The car is slowly progressing and becoming more personal to me and what I want it to be. I hope so be at focusrising next year and to show the car so at this point, I'm working owards that goal. ill still check up on y'all from my dorm room and search for inspiration. :P Thank for reading and keep on modding, people.
