I really hope you strip the dip off those wheels, I like the strut bar (have one myself) but did you have fittment issues?

What is wrong with your exhaust tips??? They seem like they are different lengths?

I always wonder why people mount subwoofers on angles, but tours is upside down and angled, why? Haha, that is all. Nice car.

It was my first time Dipping, i fucked it up compared to other people's work BUT im most likely going to rip it off and redo it but better the next time.

On the strut bar the paint was peeling off it was a little rusted out so i stripped the paint/rust off by polishing it all with the cookie sheets took me about a hour to get it all off, And there wasn't any fittment issues i just didn't like to see the rust.

AND onto my exhaust i seriously dont know but the pipe on the right is up more then the left and the plastic is a little melted

It looks like you're on the right track. The color scheme is a bit dark overall for my taste (dark headlights/tail lights/rims/side markers) on a dark car seems like a bit much, but to each his own, without tinted windows . Then again, you just got the car, so it may not be your choosing, . Any other information about the car?

Fubar may be selling his if you ask nicely. I have seen him say he is looking for a change a couple times. otherwise Optiwerks.com sells reps for cheap.
