      This will be the begining of my build. So some quick history about the car. I bought it back in 2007 and have been in love with it ever since. I did a few small mods and bought a set of Vmaxx coilovers and not too long afterwards my first set of wheels. After I graduated I went to school in Houston for about a year. While there I had several overheating problems and went through a radiator several tires, bent a wheel on there crappy roads, and even went through a engine due to a flood. After I came back home I saved some money for new parts and a couple upgrades. Which brings me to my current status.

      early 2007

      Please replace the front rubstrips to get rid of the holes!

      thats what the euro rubstrip is for but right now thats not my main concern seeing as its going to get some fresh paint once all my parts are on the car

      thats exactly why i went back to my stock grill, but when all parts are done the badgeless will back on with a filled notch and im still debating on the rear emblem whether its staying or getting shaved

      here's what ive been up to this week










      the water traps will no longer run straight out of the side ports due to the fact that there isnt enough clearance for them to be removed without damage

      very true. im not sure if this new motor has had the timechain or water pump replaced so im not goin to take any chances and i figured i might as well get new cams. Since my new bags are going in I thought i might as well replace all worn out parts.

      UPDATE 5/5/

      small update.
      picked up suede for the trunk and wrapped the floor, made new hardlines, and ran a line to the 6cd changer compartment for my air hose





      and my new wheels came in too!
