na i woke up about 5AM and just felt like getting started so i went to work. i still need to lower it more. about another inch. the eibachs aren't low enough. coilovers will help for that. shaved GTX, tucking 18s and running high 11/low 12s. pretty much the goal. this wont be a daily driver. just a car to drive when i feel like it prolly a friday night cruiser

for those who dont know the current ride height

so far i have all of the stuff up to now. so i have Zer0 invested. the engine will be just as sexy as all of the body work, everything that can be fully polished will be. plus a 400+ FWHP engine aint nothing to shake your finger at

Maybe a dark metallic gray like you were thinking on the Regal? Although I'd keep a lighter colored paint like a liquidy silver to show off the bodywork you're doing.

Impressive so far. Doors look sweet! Maybe keep it silver? Nothing wrong with that. My next choice would be black, maybe with some carbon parts here and there (if budget allows!).

i have full carbon fiber dash kit, the real one from SLP i think it was a 800 dollar option, then the leather stuff on the doors was removed. im doing carbon fiber there. yes real shit. thats just how i roll. Comp G seats will be coming during the winter. lovely

if i keep it silver it will be silvermist with lots of blue and violet pearl.

on side note. coilovers will be here very soon, and the 19s also.

so much work it seams like im going crazy
