VEHICLE STORY

Found this car on Craigslist in pretty bad state but the body was solid and almost no rust to speak of so I purchased it to make it my project car. Paint was pretty faded and rear trunk was spray painted by previous owner. Wheels were to large for the vehicle being 17x7. For extremists it might work but I am not going that route so I opted to put some 15x7's on instead. The vehicle was lowered with some cheap Chinese "coil sleeve/springs" which did nothing for proper driving. Car bottomed out on almost everything and the ride was extremely jarring. Luckily the stock springs were left in the trunk and I re-installed those. I would love to get some Fortune Auto Coil Overs or Vmaxx Extreme Coil Overs but I am not sure that is my budget. I will most likely go with some Tien Street-Z coil overs. I went the DipYourCar route as I wanted a cool color but budget wasn't calling for a 5k paint job right now. The DYC kit was a good price and came with everything needed and I think the car looks so much better for it. Further customization's will be coming to include redoing the tan carpets and a couple other small things here and there.

Can't afford Fortune Auto coil overs right now and not racing the car so I ordered some Tien Street Advance coil overs and will be installing this weekend

Installed some new 15x7's, the old Enkie's which were listed wrong, initially thought they were RPF1's turned out to be Enkie Evo 6's were too large for the car.

Dipped in DYC Frozen Blue. For obvious reasons it would look even better if the body was clean, lol. As it is, there are some dings and damaged areas but overall the body is straight.

Gutted and cleaned up, paint happening soon.
