Excellent.

He reminds me of Teddy. He got lots of **** for doing things like welding the diff in a 325 automatic, but he didn't respond to haters in a bad manner. Nobody gives him **** anymore because he's doing whatever he wants, posts it, and doesn't give a **** about the people who disagree.

Ya OP you seem to be a nice kid, and if you like it, so be it. But those things are god awful. They look so out of place and depressing. its not a fender flare, its a fender awning.

Good attitude to have, you will definitely continue to get sh*t for those lol.

good craftsmanship, but you went a little overkill imo.

I have enjoyed watching your car change, but this for me is a turning point. Its not you its me. I dont think we can go on, Im sorry, but I dont think i can see you any more.


HAHAHA jk. But really I want to see how this all comes together. On another note...

As for the stretched tires they were just a test fit. If I keep these wheels and don't go wider then I'll go with meatier tires. Test and learn and then re-test with a more accurate decision.
I would have thought that one could measure everything out first and then order the parts.

OP it seams as though you've gotten in over your head financially with this one. You should've waited to do this project until you were in a position to do it right, if there is such a thing. I commend you for your attitude towards us that don't approve. Next time don't start something until you can afford to finish it. Especially if you have to daily drive the car.

Let's hope so when they realize I will continue to do what I want and not what they want

That is another point everyone might be missing. I do not daily my car for one reason. I go to college in a different and do not bring my car with me. The majority of the year my car sits at home and gets driven around the block to keep it in shape waiting for me to come home for breaks. Christmas break was when I did the majority of the modding. Now I'm back at college and it's sitting at home, half finished sure, but not being driven around as a daily.

How about you head back to school and learn how to spell, pronounce words, and speak like a normal human being and then come back here asking for help. Dear god people are something else.

Please don't take offense, I just thought the corrections might help you. Where are you from? There are more corrections needed in there but I'm not sure if they are just rushed rather than wrong.

Trust me there are many more corrections needed in your car than in his vocabulary.

Please don't take offense.

Lol. OP is getting a college education. I'm not worried about him. If his one fault is **** taste in car mods, then he's doing pretty well.
