Post photos of the first day you had (before shot) and todays setup (after shot)

I've seen this on other forums, and I believe there was one of these threads a few years back but it is no longer active, so we might as well give it a try again. Post setups of your car the first day you had her and they way she sits today. We always enjoy seeing progress, i'll start off...


1st day that I had her...



As she sits today...

When I brought it home.



The exterior is pretty much done now. I might black out the trim but that's it. No more mods.
