    Yeah, frankly, it looks shite. But that's hardly fair since you're in the middle of working on it. Once you get the front done, that alone will fix the big issue and I think it'll look pretty mean. Sort of like a wagon for the apocalypse. From the photos it looks like it's in real good shape, yeah?

    Eh, it's alright.
    got it like this, $300.


    got it running, was a dead battery with a faulty AMM and a bad ignition control module


    got it registered and bought brand new corner lights, two of my white wheels were frozen on my other car from the salt, so i couldnt run all four.


    then i just painted the grille black


    and now it's how you see it.

    there are these things called circle tracks which put on far better racing with much cheaper cars.

    don't have the skills to do that.

    put the fronts in today plus clipped off 1.5 coils.

    it's settled lower than that. should i be hearing clunking noises and shit? the springs dont really seat in the top.

    Even though the coils don't sit in the perches when there is no weight on the car, when you put it back on the ground go slow and line up the springs in the perches, then you'll be set.

    Front springs don't seat when I jack the car up, I'm godd at the height for a bit, probably until I get a full time job and can afford coilovers.

    Going to be getting V90 taillights, they go red/white/white/red on the way down, probably going to tint the shit out of those too.
