      i knew this car would get mixed feeling on here cus of the massive amount of poke etc.. but when the arches are worked it should tone it down a bit! i myself love poke, later on in the year in gonna pull the front arches too and go 9.5's up front just collected a complete GTI front bumper there, will get pics up later. should have time later on in the week to get it painted and fitted

      Did you do any customizing on the exterior, other than change the paint? In one pic it looks like the rub strips were smoothed on the left side, but not on the right. Can't knock ya for doing what you want. Good progress.
