this picture is an important one to remember, going through here, as this is one of the areas that drastically changed in looks on my second time through, notice the shape of the rear deck area.
oh yea and the shinney black paint [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif[/img]

you dont really know fun til you take it out for a testdrive, which me and my dad did on the way to the car parade.
nothing i think, is more satisfying than riding in something youve built with your own hands.
driveing with stock sized tires under a severly lowered car, its really fun!
especially when you can hear the tires scrape the fender over and over as you cruise down the express way.. in a straight line. all them bumps make for an interesting first ride

you might have noticed in the previous shot, the 'big metal boxes' are gone, where we oringally construckted all the air box off of, just above the rear tires here. you notice it alot better in this picture as you can see right through.
