i need a new front bumper, maybe a svt one.. however that may take a while (3-5 months) or just an oem regular painted foci bumper (about a month or two) reason is those dam foam strips that were left on the car for years removed a lot of paint when i removed them, so i put them back on.. i know, they look ugly but imo better then a ghetto bumper with missing paint..anyways enjoy... i recently dropped it, got a cf hood, and some other things.. my future plans besides the bumper is a catback ( my fart can has to go, although i love the sound dont look to great, shame on me for getting it before i found out about FF. [smackbum]
anyways, enjoy the quick shots, my gf took some shots when i was driving by, will take more close ups tomorrow! your ideas/opinion are appreciated. thank you :)

dam fart can! [smackbum]


and a random shot at night :)

Unless your car is like mine and that's the good side it looks good nice and shinny. Is the CF hood dry cause it looks dull. I like it, just curious.

As far as the hood, nope I just got the hood a few days ago very shiny just looks that way from the picture angles I guess.. the car was stored duung winter and also for 5 years straight so the car everywhere is clean except for the frint bumper my grand father who owned the car befire me put these foam strips on abd when I tried to remove them when he left he the car the paint would peel because I guess they were on for so long.. so I'm keeping the foam strips on till I get a new front bumper but besides that cars flawless with a shining 24k on my spi. Thanks for the compliment... its hard to keep a white car clean!

Good looking car. I agree with wisco, loose the chrome and also get rid of that obnoxious fart can and throw on atleast a magnaflow exhaust. Other than that, I like the light setup.

I'm debeating on loosing the chrome pillars but they really grew on me.. I think it looks nice with the tint and matches with the rims without over doing it.. benkap yes these were ebay headlights.. I bought a hid kit so I could see better at night and also aligned the bulbs correctly against my garage.. only took a few minutes and can see great at night. I did have to file the socket a little to get the hid bulb to fit.. no biggie. They were not plug and play for me as the connector was what looked like a euro focus socket.. i cut the wires and just used a volt meter and these clips that wdre perfect size to attach to the socket and also had a hole so i could slip the wires through and just plugged in the 4 wires. The voltmeter helped tell me which was getting power and which wasnt.. the out bulb i put into the outer bulb and lowbeam to lowbeamw with the led to that as well.. and highbeam to highbeam.. then i electric taped them all up.. it was real simple and took about 15 minutes.. with no modifications to the cars headlight socket.. The fart can will be replaced with possibly a magna flow or maybe even a borla.. gonna listen to a few sound clips of each.. as far as the hood its only a week old.. sorry if there's aany spelling errors I'm on my mobile. Thanks all.

How can you say you like the car but change XYZ? That makes no sense at all. Thats like saying I like Snicker's bar, but the peanuts and caramel shouldn't be in there.


OP, please please have someone change the password on your paypal account so that you can't buy anymore cars parts from ebay.

Chrome must go. It's not a Lexus. If you gonna see the frames without the chrome, you will hit yourself in the head for not removing them long time ago. White handles would look good too. It's fairly easy to remove them and you can paint them yourself.
Other than that it's clean and hood indeed looks weird so you need to snap more, better pictures :p

Thanks man. Its been a long time coming and its still not done. If you have any questions shot me a PM. I have no problem telling you what is what.

Also if you grandfather put a rainbow flag sticker on the car would you still have it on there simply because he put it on? Yeah I know its hard to undo thing on a car that was giving to you, but if the giver doesn't like it, then don't give the car away.
