Thank goodness the wheels were replaced. Not feeling the 1st set you put on but what you have now looks sweet!

Thanks, I do plan on painting my fogs to match too. That's next up on the list. As for the grill, I rock the SD grill every now and then. I like both grills.

how much did that altezza grill run you?
I bought it off ebay for $150 but then I also bought a new black Z emblem for it which cost me another $50 bucks, so $200 total.

solid ride. throw some headers on!!! +rep for a tasteful job.
Thanks man. I was going to put some headers on before but decided to put it off and save money for the wheels and tires. If I can find a Mazzuri header or Megan header for a good price. I will definitely buy.

Where were these pictures taken? I think I know where it is.... LOL

Looks good so far dude!
I don't think you know. Way up in North Phoenix. It's a secret area. LOL

Did those clear sidemarkers give you trouble with inspection. I am hearing there illegal? Anyways nice car ggp pride.
I rocked the clear sidemarkers for quite some time and had no problems. Why would they be illegal? They still light up amber. Never ran into any trouble with them at least here in AZ.

Haha ahhh North Phoenix aye.... Yeah I have no clue where you would have been.

When are we going to do a Gilbert meet!?!?! :lol:
You should set up another meet. I stay up in Gilbert on the weekends. My cousin lives right next to the Intense Power shop, so I'm usually around there. Funny thing is I never see any IS's up there.
