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.

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.
