Heres whats going on right now.



This is how the car sits right now. I went through a lot this past year. So ill give ya a brief update.

Last summer i sold my CF hood, to a guy and also traded for his stock hood so i could paint it red. As you can see haven't gotten around to that yet. Then over the winter , during a snow storm a wisconsin ice/snow bolder came into my lane(caused by a fire truck turning around in a median to resucue a flipped over car) and i hit it. So now my CTR Grille is damaged, hard to tell in the pic, as well as my hood.

So I went and purchaced a new Cwest(style) front bumper. Ya i know im a cheap *** but i just want the car to look better with the limited funds i have. And im selling the Ctr lip under the 4Sale Section.

My plans are for some wheels, but would like some suggestions. I don't know if i want to get black wheels or silver. or just go with SI wheels. I feel i need some aftermarket to complement the New bumper. What do you guys think.

Ya it doesn't show up too well, ill take some more pics tommarrow. Also some of my Hatch damage. My car has so many little imperfections, but im working on taking care of them.

The front bumper is screwed up , as well as the grille, That why i bought the Cwest bumper, because for 250 it will replace all that is damaged, minus the hood, Then i will so some bodywork to the hood, and paint it with the same paint for the bumper, to save some cost.

As for motor pics, Give a few months. I have a b18b sitting in my basement, needs to be built still, but i need to save 700 to finish that swap. Money is a issue right now since i just blew 2k on a new roof for my house. But now that its done its on to making the car a little nicer to look at.

Since my new bumper showed up damaged looks like im keeping the CTR lip and going to fix the hood and grille, or buy a new grille. Soon it will all be red again. Thanks for any comments left. I will get pics up once the repairs are complete. I just need to find some rims and she will look good.

A little photoshop, this took me about 5 mins. I'll spend some more time and make it look better, but i wanted to see what rims and my hood finialy painted would look like.
