Default LudeNsoL GS300 (lots of pics)

okay so this is a pretty much copy and paste since i never made a build thread here... It seems like a never ending project since everyday i have a new idea and want to buy something new.. anyways one word of advice is that if you want to lower the car DONT buy springs... even if you want a mild drop... get coils from the beginning.. you'll thanks me later.

I have only had the car for 6-7 months so I want to take it easy for now...LOL
(we'll so how far that goes_)

So this is my second GS. My first was a 400 which wasted too much gas, so i got a 300 and i love it, besides being so much slower.
i got it completely stock from a older couple. Bought a few things here and there and still got more to go....... tell me what u think... i got some bs wheels ima throw on for now..../
Stock





before lowering it







slammed on stockies for now

What kind of rims are those ( the ones you sold last) I'm looking for something exactly like that. I like how you painted the bottom of the back bumper.
The car looks insane though!
