I repainted the front air dam yesterday. I did black for the middle portion this time because that seemed to get the most damage over last summer. If it gets scratched up again, all I need to do is a quick repaint with black.

Ignore the paper stuffed over the license plate, it was the only way I could keep it from hogging all the flash.

I got pics of what's going on, but unfortunately, the camera is still in the car so it will have to wait until tomorrow.

BTW. These leds have no effect on the interior lighting. If it's alright with you, I'll probably have to wait till next month to buy the LED pods from you.

Make sure you post a link. It's great watching what others are doing to there cars. It's one of the best ways to get ideas.

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.
