Found a euro front for even cheaper than the rear, and I have a question that needs to be answered in the next 4 hours please. lol What work has to be done to get the euro front to fit? Do I have to remove everything like I did to the rear? I wouldnt feel comfortable with driving around with no crash bar in the front.

No problem!
Just take your time and it'll be great!!
Remember first is really light(short of a tack coat) then I usually do 3 to 4 medium coats(sanding in between to get it extra smooth) then 4 to 5 coats of clear normally but on my sap I'm going satin so ill probably do 3 to 4 coats of it

^good choice!

No I didnt win it. I started bidding in the last minute, went to 150 and decided I dont need it that bad. Technically, it would have been a good deal up to 300 atleast. Great shape, had everything except the tow hook cover, and it was already the color of my car. But I just dont need it that bad ya know?

Checklist of stuff to do to the car before I leave for cleveland:
-reattach interior LEDs, some are coming unglued.
-replace lower torque mount. Ive had the part for weeks, and just never replaced it. lol
-Anchor subs (not sure why I havent ever done that).
-Wash the car if possible
-Put SVT spoiler on (hopefully painting goes well). Gotta drive to ohio in style...lol
-wire up reverse lights once the other one comes in
-Oh and find good driving music and update my ipod!
