arm rest flames are kinda tacky

^^ ditto.

Other than that, this will be SICK.

Engine: Keep it simple sounds good. With gas the way it is, keep that MPG D-series.

What does it get, like 40 mpg?

Are you putting the rear side panels in or all the rear panels/seats in? I ask because you just painted the floor, or is that just sound deadening?

ed but anyway, if you make one of those bars, make it so you can use it as a harness bar, and sell me one cheap for giving you the idea

Build up is looking sick man. I'm working on a similar build up for my EG6.. shitload of body work. Keep it up!

apekd
11-11-2008, 06:57 PM
Well not any real pics right now. All I have been doing is body work.
I found a wheel that I want. Was going to go with Sport Max, but I have been seeing them a little to much. So I found another wheel with the same +15 offset that I will be using.

Here is a pic I found of what the car should look like with the wheels


those are either the Drag's or sport max. They are pretty dope really. My friend had a set of the drags on his ED then his EG. They really kick ass. and the dish is hella nice

if you spray you're gay
if you spool..... well..... you're still gay

I hope by spray you mean NOS, and by spool I hope you are referring to knitting or something. lol

Well minor set back, compressor took a shit! So I either need to fix it or get another. Either way it kinda puts a holt on the whole body work thing.

I may have just picked up an upholstery shop for a sponsor. I'm going to have them re-do my head liner and maybe do my back seats in the same red as my front! I think that will really set it off!

There will be no more updates on this site. It has to be one of the worst sites I have ever been on!
