I've been saving some money for some time now to get a new DD because i've been getting hassled by the cops way toooooo much, and recently I acquired this new DD...

Then i needed some parts...

If your thinking i painted the steelies gold... well I didnt :oops:, thats how it came.

Yeah...she's gonna need some loving. :D

Future Plans:
1.SiR Bumpers *Done 10.25.08*
2.New Paint Job
3.New Radiator Support
4.Lowering *Purchased, Not Installed 10.25.08*
5.Wheels *Painted Black 10.25.08*

That's it... for now. ;)

Btw its an auto but who cares right? Its got AC & a sun roof, that's all i really wanted for a DD :)

i picked up a DD. all i did was put 4 matchin wheels on it and a tuneup, lol. i soo wanna do other things, but then i'd have to worry about theft and cops. so yea, it stays stock everything.

good luck though!

Well if you dont want any cops to give you shit, get some white walls, lift it up a inch or two. put a jesus emblem on your trunk maybe a support our troops sticker on there too, Some colorful seat covers, a fur dash cover, a license plate cover that says something about god, and dont change anything else, not even the color of your steelies i mean uhhh rust. Oh and get the weakest headlight bulbs out there... like some cheap ones that look so dim, they look like DRL's.

**UPDATE 11.14.08**

Well i primer black'd the bumpers and fitted them in. Then installed those coilovers and man.... you really get what you pay for. They ride bumpy as fuck on shitty roads, I need to buy something better later down the road. Oh yea, I also manage to cut my left index finger deep as fuck on the very 1st shock!!:shock: with a knife while cutting the bump stop in half :oops: A trip to the local ER, 4 stitches, and 4 hours later i came back to finish the install....

Other than that, shes dump'd to my liking. (Photos of the drop later) I also picked up a set of Skunk2 Pro Front Camber Kit but i haven't installed it yet because it didn't arrive till after i had already installed the coilovers. Also i need to get a rear camber kit and then get an alignment.

On another note my car has been overheating while idling and leaking coolant.....errrr....:(

The photos so far.

UPDATE: 11.25.08**
This pass weekend i installed my Skunk2 Pro front camber kit and replaced my rear driver side wheel studs. i only actually needed to replace 1 but i missed up the threads on all 4 when installing the one :smackself and in the end i replace all four with new studs, stupid me. Then i washed the car and took some photos...
