Rabbit bumper looks great. Edit: paint the Badgeless grille and you'll be golden.
I like the relocation work to clean up the bay too.

Are you talking about the OEM reservoir or the lines themselves? There are companies that make custom tanks per your request, so you could measure out your free space in there and they can make a reservoir that will just slide in. I'm not really sure exactly how much room is back there but I'm just shooting the idea your way because it would look killer.

two new mods today. The first one might start catching on. rear window delete > rear wiper delete. I cocked the wiper motor just right so that the window didnt like it and it exploded:




The other nice mod that is 50% done is my coolant bar/expansion tank relocation. Some more fab work needs to be done for it to be fully operational:

Coolant Bar looks awesome!

Rear Window/Wiper Delete: DO NOT WANT! Sorry man, hope you can find one cheap.

Nice! My wife happened to be in here when I opened this and said "H/S!" She came over to look and told me that if I did that "I would be done for a while." (wasn't sure if she was talking sex/mods or both ). $100 isn't bad at all- could've been much worse.

Picked up my wheels from the refinisher today. They are looking super minty. Im glad i decided to refinish them instead of sell them. No room to take pictures in my apartment and im not leaving them in the car since i have no rear window but here they are anyways. I had the 4 with tires refinished. the 5th w/o a tire has never been mounted or dicked with. I think it matches pretty perfectly I'll be putting them on tomorrow. Also, no its not chrome; google physical vapor deposition if you're interested. CH Plasmas 18x8:
