Hey guys, Represent'n SoCal!
Had this LS since 06' but never been active on the forums till now.
What motivated me to work on my car is my friend with the black GS that won 1st recently at T.O.R.C.

The pics I'm posting is all of what happened in the past 2 months getting ready for T.O.R.C.

here goes...

Had these badboyz since 06' finally came around to repair/repolished



Daily Bumper with a front lip


Makito doing work!


Fresh paint!



Now a week before the meet, some guy rear ended me! So I busted my *** off to get a new bumper, prep the bumper, and paint the bumper with only a week.

New bumper


Had this in the works


Interior shot


Caravan for T.O.R.C



John from BP took 1st, good ssh *t!

Clean cars, I remember standing by the LS section when standing inline waiting for the free shirts. Motivated me to get my LS project going again.
