you must be young, i figured that out a long time ago lol

women buy shoes to make themseleves more attractive to find a "mate" for money,lust,status or whatever reason they are using....

guys buy cars/parts to make themselves look more successful, stylish, cooler, more important than the other guys to attract the women...........and then we continue to build them to get time away from those same women who are getting on our nerves

Haha i'm really focused on the things I want to get done. I could never really spend money on clothes or drinks or partying or anything.. Just doesn't interest me like having a ballin car at such a young age and paying for everything myself does you know? I wanna be the youngest cat in the U.S. to have the NICEST GS build. Kind of like setting the bar.

I still get in my fun time though don't worry.

Anyways onto a huge, but not so huge update.

Brian has been working on a JP Grill for me that he bought and then sold to me. It has 2 frames that I can use. I sent him a 98-00 Grille (Thanks MikeFoxx for the grill) to cut out and use the chrome frame on so that I could still have a 'factory' looking Junction Produce Grille along with a color matched frame. The color matched frame will have 202 Onyx on the inside of it like the original JP and then will be 051 PDW on the outer edge that will face out so people can see.

That frame is still in the paint shop though unfortunately so I only have pics of the OEM chrome frame for now. Enjoy.



This isn't the finished product, but it is an update. I should have the grill and both frames in my possession on Saturday and will more than likely update the thread with pics Sunday/Monday sometime of it installed and finished with both frames then i'll go from there to decide which I like the most.


EDIT: So I got a picture of the colormatched frame. Unfortunately the idiot shop that is doing it can't seem to follow simple instructions. They seem to not care since it's such a small piece. They broke a tab during the process and didn't even prep it like Brian clearly TOLD them to. They also didn't tape it off properly it seems and some 051 ran onto the 202 Onyx Black on the inner part. Anyways, these aren't finished pics as it's going to have to go back to the shop for them to fix their not so professional mistakes. Enjoy.

Thank you so much for everything Brian! You really don't know how much I appreciate all of your work on these two frames.

On that note.. I got in the frame yesterday for the JP Grill (the color matched one) and here are the installed pics of it! Enjoy guys. This will be the last update for a while (maybe until the end of August) i'm going on vacation tomorrow morning for a week and then when I get back it's time to sign back up for classes for school and get going again on the grind. Hopefully I can get more stuff in before the end of the summer, but you guys know how life is. Nothing ever goes according to plan. All I can do is hope for the best that everything goes smooth.
