Summer 2014 - Back in action.



















Winter 2014
Forecast says snow is coming, so I finished getting my car ready. Winter tires+rims on, did some rustproofing by hand, lubed all the locks n stuff, painted all chips and took the lip off ( guess i'll have to shovel the driveway after all)... should be good to go!




Spring 2013
Installed an Eibach Pro-Kit , Koni Yellows, DBA T2 Rotors & Hawks HPS pads





Summer 2012

Finished painting my front lip (finally), installed my redline hoodlift kit, and installed a boost gauge!






Crappy cellphone nite pic


Spring 2012 - Slowly coming out of winter mode...





[2011-11-11] Winter mode!






[2011-10-15]HDR Photo taken at circuit ICAR. I did quite a few touchoups to the pic, but I think it turned out absolutely amazing!



[2011-07-24] New summer pics
Car got hit in the very back of an empty parking lot. GAHHH. Drew up some bandaids and got them vinyled by GTAdecal


Getting gas to go camping


Random Rainy day pic


[2011-05-01] Completed several projects, not so stock looking anymore! Still need to get the lip painted though, on top of a very big ToDo list





Stock, at home with my old 3GT!


[2011-04-09] Bone stock At the licensing office with my GF's G5

I removed my badges for weight reduction and greater aerodynamic efficiency.

Re: Cab0oze's 2008.5 Speeed3

-Updated first post-

My gf was away on vacation, and the guy that i rent from that keeps his car in the garage was gone, so i had a WHOLE GARAGE and NO GF to stop me from doing whatever i wanted!

Soooo I got a couple projects done from removing moldings to blacking out emblems, and then i washed/waxed both of our cars so i could snap a few pics.

Hopefully it doesn't rain tomorrow so I can actually take some nice outdoor pics for once...

Car looks really clean, I like what you've done with with it so far. Are your front windows tinted? Canada FTW

[/quote]Thanks guys

And yeah, about the windows, they were, but I took them off after my gf got pulled over for her tints (any tint on the front is illegal in QC, we got ours done in ontario before we moved)
