like the look of your ride

I can tell you you can touch up the paint on your brakes go to a shop they can touch up your red on your brakes and you can get new decals for the stop teck on the brakes... you should look into that will make your brakes look like new... but other than that car looks very clean good luck with her....

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll refinish them one day. It's currently not something I feel is a priority.

looks awesome. nice set of mods to complete the car. for me the front pokes too much. would love to see less front camber and the tire poking the same as the rear. some angles of the photos remind me of a fwd drag car.

on a side note. good to see the homepage articles being updated more often!
