    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] When I got the car it had all the chrome primered grey.I painted the bumpers an almond color(guards have since been removed also) and grill to match the flat black.I have put on a split manifold and two steel packs -12 inch.will post some more pics of how I did the exhaust.Just figured out how to post some pics so I figured I would do a quick update.More to come

    I thought about putting a 46 gille in my 48 but the idea of everyone saying hey nice 46 and it being a 48 would get pretty old lol.

    Looks great that exaust is sweet!

    Thanks man! Those are things that will be done in the future,I would like to run the stock wheels w/ center caps(there in bad shape and need some work,have two finished so far) and I have 3 inch lowering blocks for the rear-but what do I do to the front?Already cut one coil and removed the spacers
     
  13. cut thye coils and put in lowering blocks-lose the wheels. nice car.
