      Nice progress and I actually like these wheels, the D90's do look better though. The final pics look awesome.

      Haha yeah I ended up getting those wheels for free and I guess I can't really complain they are better than the black steelies haha

      Ok, so I put in a ton of work over the holiday weekend

      Off the top of my head, I shaved the fenders, shaved another set of fenders, installed the coilovers, replaced the thermostat & housing, replaced the water pump, painted the calipers, put the oil pan, oil filter/housing, and oil pump on, installed the lower Eurosport strut bar, installed the poly bushings on the control arm, all the wiring for my power windows is done and they work perfectly, gauge cluster is wired now and working, power mirrors wired up, installed the new aluminum radiator, correct radiator hoses, and put on my new coolant reservoir and got it wired up, got most of the dash back together and installed my driver side harness, b-pillars, Golde hande and smoked dome light, got my tails and eurotub on, battery in the trunk and correctly wired up, lower cross member installed and bumper put on the right way, uhm etc....

      Shaving the fenders (banana lights, antena hole, and trim holes, and fixed the dents). It doesn't look like it from the pictures but of course I roughed up the paint before I applied the bondo..


















      And finally after applying the primer sealer went over it with undercoating, then after that dried I went over all of it with another layer of bondo and prime/undercoat again.

      Installing the coilovers (FK Streetlines just like the rest of the world is using haha).
      Also painted all 4 calipers (I already had the MK3 2.0l calipers installed on all 4, just didn't paint them...)
      Also installed the e-brake cables so I now have an e-brake

      Tail lights I'm going to run for now, haven't quite made up my mind yet, I'm considering running stockers with my heckblende instead of these with the euro plate tub.
      Yes that's a foam wing, and I already finished shaving the rear emblems.

      Well that's it for now I think, I didn't take as many pictures as I probably should have but I'm really not a fan of stopping my work to clean off my hands and take pics I also put in some work on my vrt to get it running and drive-able for a photoshoot, can't wait to see the pics
      Anyways, feedback and/or suggestions are welcome and appreciated [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
