I took my Moar Low pic. I don't get the full rules of it, but it appears that you have to use a key fob in it so I did. I had to modify the situation a little bit...

MOAR LOW!! YES!

Ok, so I had the woman drive the car today while I followed her in the Armada. Yes, I am that guy. We set out on a planned route with some low-speed/high-speed passing so that I could see the car from as many different perspectives as possible. I realized a few things-

A. I need to wash my car.
B. The tint is way too light. I will be speaking with the tint guy soon to see about bringing the rest of the windshield down to 35% (no need to preach, I get it).
C. The car doesn't look loaded down on the Pro springs.
D. My internal debate is over on the spacers/adapters. 10mm Front, 15mm Rear.
E. I need stripes fast. Those Knuckles decals are killing my aesthetics. I need to integrate them into the car better.

Those are lessons learned. Got it. Dyno scheduled on Sat morning after we meet at IHOP (duh). Then I can get that crappy snorkel back out and cut that ugly-ace exhaust off. I would rather see nothing than have to keep looking at that. And I will probably fab up a brace this week to help with that stupid flapping in the center of the rear valance. It doesn't move a ton, but moving at all is too much for me.

People are all like "Look at his cars big, flappy butt!" It's hurtful, people. Don't say mean things like that.

Full coverage, no worries...

It's ok to just watch someone else on occasion...

That, and I have to know how others actually see my ride...Have I mentioned that I'm over-analytical...

+1 to that I needed to see how it looked in motion. Had to pry the keys from me but it happened.

What stripe design are you going with man?

Chase each other down the highway, ride swap, then chase each other down the highway again!
