Do you drive back and forth at all by any chance? Not sure how bad shipping rates would be.

I'd give it a 9.5 out of 10 for fitment. From what I've seen on this forum the fitment looks a lot better than most.

There are a few areas where I wish it was a few mm's over or down but it looks great to me.

^The whole hood seems to be a few mm farther to the passenger side. Not a big deal. The front of the hood could come down a few mm's to sit more flush with the lights and fenders. Not a big deal.

Those might be fixable by adjustments I have control over but I'm not sure. I adjusted it as much as possible.

Sorry, It's going to be honda-fied for a while :/ Project cars don't look 100% all the time. Thing is that my project car is also my daily driver currently. After college when I get a real job I'll get a new DD with better mpg

Edit: And kidneys are going to be ordered tomorrow too!

I've had some ridiculous stuff on top of my car haha. I did put a tarp down but overall I wasn't too worried about the paint. The previous owner didn't take very good care of it and the paint all over the car is scratched and messed up.

The plan is to replace all the exterior parts that I want to replace, and then re-paint or dip it all together.

Yes it will look pretty "ghetto" with mis-matched parts but I'm fine with that. I don't care if people think negatively of me when I drive by lol.

Thank you Nikon D5200 with a Nikkor 50mm 1.4 (usually).


The D5200 is for sale as I'm looking to upgrade to a D610 if anyone is interested.
