looks like you're heading in a different style than my own, but the work is interesting. what did you do to the front of the hood? metal work so the grill would sit right with the hood raised in the rear? did you bodywork the rears after flaring, or just paint over the pulled metal? still looks chewed up. overs maybe?

There was 3M on the hood I had to grind it off to get fresh paintjob.
And the rear quarters are rusted so I just did a tempurary patch job. \i had ordered a right and a left brand new quarter panels so the rear quarters should be 100% mint about a month.
The hood is just lifted for more ventalation

What do you mean scraping? like being too low? if so yes alot lol.
And yeah the steelies, like I said just brought the car and it came with it, but when I got it, the steelies were 100% purple. So i decided to cover some of it up lol.
