    Nice car.

    Looks like it needs some work, but you obviously don't need me to affirm that. Any plans for the car?

    Thanks, as far as plans, It's mostly just fixing the body work, the motor problems. Getting a new exhaust, some Oem wheels, an Ltw wing and front lip, nothing to crazy

    Both The wheel and exhaust are already on their way

    Just want it to look clean

    Those plans sound good, I think that car will be pretty much where it needs to be after that. Keeping the roll bar in?

    Not very many updates as far fixing it cosmetically, the selling of the oem wheels I was buying decided to keep his wheels. Thankfully I was able to find another set for a very low price, just saving money for tires. And enjoying the car currently. It's been an expensive month with birthdays and other events and I have my brothers wedding next month so repairs to the car have taken a back seat at the moment. How ever other than have the exhaust and registration and insurance which was most important i have just been driving it and enjoying it

    Here is a pic from a recent cruise I went on
