Teaser: Finally... 8 weeks later

I got rear ended by a DUI about two months ago (see pictures here. I just got the car back from the shop last weekend. Here is the best after picture I have. Once the car is detailed and shined up I will attempt to take some better pictures.

The whole rear end got a makeover all at one time! Enjoy!

(It's getting dropped this weekend on H&R Race springs, so hold off on the "drop it" comments )







I'd like to thank my friend Nef at Red Finish in Tampa for all of his hard work (especially the awesome fade he put on the lip) and Peter at ConstructAuto for the bootlid and bumper.

When I get some spare cash laying around after the holidays, I want to put a set of 260Ms on her! First things first though... she's getting a drop, 330 tips, and some tint.

You should see it in person. I can't get a picture that does the faded lip justice. If you're at the Reeve's Motorsport Gathering this weekend, I will be there.

Not until the brand new tires wear out! They aren't the best in the world, but I'm not going to just waste money on tires right now.

"Drop it like it's hot!" LOL, J/K. Looks good. You need some wheels too! That fade on your trunk looks awesome.
