    I didn't realize til after I gotten it painted that there were more panels that I could've added before paint like firewall cover and shock tower covers.

    Gee thanks Noobz347 I also use it for my dirt bikes haha luckily it worked well while I put everything together

    Anytime. Your setup is looking good. I can't wait to hear how you like it once you get it installed.

    I don't offer it with original steel, stainless only. Curious question here, why do you want original steel?

    You'll have to let me know how that UPR coil-over works out for ya. I've heard mixed reviews but not from any verifiable sources.

    Are you running those wheels in the final cut? I thought I remembered a different set of wheels in a previous discussion.

    Yes these are the wheels I will be using the ones in previous pics were 09 v6 wheels that were my girlfriends brothers that he let me use to wheel the car around on I need to shorten the fronts though a 9" wheel with that offset sticks too far out the fender so either get 7" wheels or get someone to shorten them for me as in cut and reweld
