I remember you having a white fender & door on the right side. Did you get the whole car painted or just the parts that needed color-matched paint?
Regardless, the car looks great! (besides the muffler but thats my opinion and others from before)

AGX's for the rear, GR2's for the front and eibach sportlines all round. i think the GR2's are starting to give out though, that might be my excuse to get coilovers soon

I disagree. Painted door handles would have been a nice finishing touch.

Paint looks great though. I'm surprised you took the time and money to paint the car but still have mad rear negative camber. git r done!

I like the original flat black trim and handles myself. I do like the chrome ones on a white car with the chrome a grill. I would have to see a pic of one with body colored handles.

Don't forget about the SGTDave upper arms made from AFCO parts that retails for around $90.

O'reilly's can order those as well. made by the same company that make the front camber bolts SPC.

Liking the paint job, car is looking good.



How do you make a small fortune racing? Start with a very large one!!!
