Made my own License Plate relocation to the Lower Grill part, prior was on the factory bracket and was screwed into the bumper part. I now have it attached to the lower grill kinda streamlines the front end a lil more...





Then I did my first time at filling in the 4 holes that were let in the bumper....Used Bondo Spot Filler...And came out decent..Not perfect at least there are no holes to see...

2017:

2 New things for Penny at the start of the new year!

Replaced cheaply made hood dampeners that came with the hood kit by Sokie Tech...they gas inside of them failed so found these at Pepboys a lot stronger ones I found!




Then replaced my Phillips Brand LED DRLs due to when getting murdered by a traffic cone I hit on a rainy day...Bought a new style LED lights to fit..Made custom brackets for them.

Didn't like how "dim" the LED DRLs were so bought a different pair...Similar to the old ones not as long in length...I like them better!
I still think Phillips Brand DRLs are way superior in design and light color though...

Been a while since I done a Car Project...I had an old Front Lip that I bought and never used it so I converted it into custom set of Rear Bumper Flares haha...Hak it up w/ a Dremmel and created this...I think it came out pretty awesome!

Bought & installed all new Motor Mounts.... PMM is a solid rubber one vs. the Fluid Filled one....The TRanny Mount is a Beck Arnley Brand and the RMM is the Efocus one.



Engine Shot:



Also Purchased a Blk Acrylic flat top shift knob from Twisted Shifterz damn nice quality too!

I can't believe you guys are arguing about the functionality of a spoiler on an economy car that can't even hit 130 without a mountain and a strong tailwind.
Downhill in a hurricane? Who drives that fast? Maybe on the track.
This build is about going slow. No one puts this epic level of attention and detail into a ride unless it is meant to be looked at. @ultimica06 you have an incredible eye for detail and considerable skill with detailed finish work.

For me, this is where I fell in love. (Although I would have kept the Fogs) ;)



Happy Motoring

Hey, I never received a response from you regarding your dash. Is the upper piece (closest to the windshield) cracked?
