How it all began....

Stock with 35% tint.




A couple months later i picked up the JoeZ pipe.



I took a long break from modding, but finally decided to change the suspension out with some lowering springs, Stechs to be exact. And with a 5% tint.



And now the latest edition, L-tuned exhaust.





Okay so i havent updated this in a while so here it is.....

Finally made on decision on some wheels, some gramlights! w/ an upgrade on my suspension Fortune Auto coilovers thanks SageAuto!



Shortly after i got rear ended so my taillight got smashed in but luckily i had some custom LED tails lying around to be installed....



Then i pieced together by lip kit....RMM front, RMM sideskirts, and an Ltuned rear (which isnt in the pic) Here is a test fit.




Then i got my hands on one of these, waiting to be painted fully msm...



I then decided to get back into the engine and upgrade my intake to SRT....



I finally got my kit painted and put on... here are some recent shots, hope you like em....

The lip looks off. Is that normal for it to tilt up?

It's the way you mounted your RMM lip. Mine doesn't fall off like that. BTW, where did you pick up the side RMM skirt? Thanks.

Very nice man.
Doin anything with the heaadlights?

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.
