A touch over the top for me but wow, I can certainly appreciate the attention to detail that went into this!

Those wheels/offsets/fender-mods look insane!

The cost is not that bad as far as other comparable subs. But if you plan to run that many let me know what you do to beef up your electrical.

The body work totaled a grip around 7g's

Thank you. The headlights were difficult to do due to the projectors that I choose. Make sure that whoever you decide to use to do the retrofit has experience.

Hopefully Vlad and his car is o.k. SANDY was a mug....
Thank you for checking up on me Lee. Thank god that my car was parking in the shop that was further inland and nothing happened. My father's Rav4 was a total loss as well as all the cars around me. They say that almost 200,000 cars were damaged.

Thank you, as they say different strokes for different folks, it did turn out much more aggressive than I anticipated but I'm happy with it.

The lip kit is my own design but if you mean what I used to create it, I used the stock bumpers and the version select II and put my own twist on it. The bosy shop really took my ideas and ran with them.
