Took it to Soundset 2013, a 1 day hip hop festival, which happens to have a car show. So much better this way, rather than parking and walking in with the masses.

Left at the end of Snoop Dogg (Lion,) who played half AWESOME old skool stuff and half newer stuff. I was about ready to leave at the beginning of his act but had to stick around because he started it off with Next Episode.

(Snoop on stage in the distance lol)


Working our way toward the front


After being in front for an hour or two




Car drove great, original cooling system still working flawlessly

So last night and today, I took on a little project. I realized I had 2 broken arm rests, and then realized that they could be pieced together to make a perfect 2-tone arm rest. Victory!


Old vs. new



Condition of the old arm rest



Both formerly broken arm rests, good one on the right



Inside of broken arm rest (tan base) - not sure how it got all melted and gashed up like this



Broken lid on other arm rest



After piecing new one back together

So, since my last update, I've hit 2 (two) concrete chunks that were left in the road on construction. All I did was 'deflect' them, which scratched the outermost lip of the bumper and luckily didn't crunch anything. All I had to do was spend 1 minute with compound and apply 1 long line of touch up paint. This fiberglass Arqray has really been through a lot.

This droid camera tears it up, I swear

Everybody has been trying to convince me to get rid of my color matched grills. I was hesitant. Your car affirms that I really like color matched grills on the right car. As always, your car looks fantastic.

Your car looks great, would you mind measuring your side skirts (which are M3 side skirts correct?). Length and width.

They're around 1cm shorter than stock sedan skirts.











Just a couple more pics to share -












test fitting some wheels, might end up using them..
