      Nope, I am doing much less than the other guys taking on the bay. Mine is just getting a bit of a refresh.

      I don't think the car would look good with the bay shaved, maybe some wire tucking, but shaving the bay is pretty much the complete opposite direction his car is going. Most people would look at his car and see it's lowerd an has wheels. It takes another look even a 3rd look to realize the subtle differences that make his car different from the rest. A shaved bay is just to flashy and stands out to much.

      Looks good Geoff, your brothers photography skills are amazing

      His photography makes a good car look great, IMHO. I agree on the full tuck/shave. Mikey's car suits it, I don't even like it on a 1.8t but it absolutely fits his car, and I think James' car will fall into the same category. I will almost be taking a step backward with the bay, but I feel it suits the car better.

      Just a friendly suggestion guys, Geoff's car is obviously one of the cleanest if not the cleanest B5 around.

      needinganaudi, wasn't trying to be against you or anything. Lol geoff have an understanding of each others slight touches. We bank ideas off each other and share most of the little things. Lol i was just glad to see someone else noticed all the small things...... Nothing against shaved bays, we just both have decided to go the opposite direction.

      So ur going to paint the bumper verticals back to silver? I hope that's what you mean, I'm not a big fan of the euro look. New pics all look awesome.

      I was going to paint them black, actually they are still painted silver, I just have some vinyl over them. In the winter my front valence got caught on a driveway it actually cracked those verticals...they are bent but in tact...it annoys the crap out of me though. I much prefer the silver verticals too but I don't know how to pull it off now. I will work on it though, perhaps I will re-enforce it from behind and leave it silver.

      All fluid caps replaced, expansion tank replaced, IM, and some general cleaning.

      Did your coolant tank come with the black lettering on it? When I got mine it didn't have any lettering painted on it. So I think I'm going to try to paint it. Also isn't it annoying that it always forms condensation on the top. I went to a show Friday and it was really annoying me that everything was clean looking in my bay except for the tank's stupid condensation.

      It's looking really good though! I bet you got a lot of attention without a bumper. Everyone was staring at me cause I bought some new wheels off another guy there and was swapping them at the show haha. A group of GTOs next to me was hating

      Ya it came like that, I have seen some with, and some without. I think if you cracked the cap on the bottle it would get rid of the condensation.

      Ya, no bumper gets attention, although I was surprised I was the only one there without one, as it was a JDM show and there tend to be some pretty legit drift cars there.
