      haven't had anything to update in a while.

      Got an evo thor skidplate a few weeks ago and had an extension welded on to the back to protect the front of the trans pan.

      IMG_1066 by ZVincler, on Flickr

      and I need to start shopping around for a painter next week.

      IMG_1076 by ZVincler, on Flickr

      Anyone know a painter or body shop in the area to recommend by any chance?

      Got pulled over for the first time today for being too low. Apparently the law in PA says the top of the steel reinforcement behind the bumpers has to be at least 16" from the ground; my front is around 14.5. Only a written warning though. Have to raise it, go to the station to show them and then go home and lower it.

      haha thats lame

      Paint prep looks really good. I did the hood and bumpers….patience is definitely key when doing that type of stuff.

      Plate looks could I need to do something about mine, I also need to figure out how to protect my flex pipe its the lowest part of the car
