So.....

To start this out...

Lets just say that I was a ricer, yes, Rice was a part of my 17 year old mind. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I now know it was dumb and silly. I am 21 now.......

That being said. I feel that I have moved far away from that stage of my life and here it is.

Please comment, give me your criticism and all that.

:cool:

Oh, and the rice begins



It gets so much worse, just wait.



and this was on racelands

Yea... That was the worst. That was terrible. .. badge less grill.. that fucking lip... and the wheels. I'm sorry guys... please do not judge me.. please....



much better, bought some better wheels.. and a vortex rep lip...



This is a little better, i still needed to get rid of that grill and that the plate was blocking all that air flow.

Any pics of the exhaust fitment behind the valance? I always wanted to shave the back and do that bent to the ground piece

mounted my wheels and put the new suspension on as well as the spm rsb... found out my h&r's collars were siezed on the front so that is fun. so i am stuck at this height unless i can get some new collars from h&r.

This is with the new wheels and tires on

It rubs a good amount so I removed the fender liner but it still needs a little fender work. they will be pulled slightly. but Water By The Bridge was this weekend. it was freezing but good to see old friends.

update, has the brakes on, they handle so much better than stock even with race brake fluid... no brake fade on the track on stock size rotors, im probably not going fast enough. :/

Loving it, more things to come this winter, such as oil pump rebuild,

hopefully ill get a roll bar in and seats n harness,
