I figured the only way to keep up with our crew's progress is to make a thread ... Post up what you have been doing with words and even pics Smile... Lets get this started...

My progress:

- Canibeat shoot coming soon as soon as this weather clears
- Wrong Fitment Crew Approved ( WFC #812 )
- Dialing in my camber so you arent able to fit your fingers in between my tire sidewall and fender in the rears..
- Changed my front brakes
- Painted little interior pieces flat black to match my D&G headliner and all

My progression:

- Trying to get rear bumper painted as well as other body pieces to match the rest of the car.

- Removed back seat last weekend.

- Hope to get roll cage painted and installed.

- May pickup rear diffuser.

- Really want wheels, but they just arent in the budget right now.

- Other than that small things that I come across or fixing things or any other mods that happen to come across my path that are cheap lol. Also trying to earn money lol.

Yes u can, but at least say like new body mods or engine work or something, I know and am pretty sure everyone else knows u will always be modding, I think this is just to verify that everyone is going to be still modding.

hmmm progress....Well gotta get my living situation straightened out. That'll be done through july. Very Happy And then from there, well let's just say i'm gonna be able to spend alot more on my car. So then some of the near future mods will be:
-New wheels with the right stance
-led taillights red/clear/red
-chrome trunk garnish
-more junction produce stuff
-lip kit or body kit
-paint of course

and somewhere along the line i'll be getting my full stereo system put in. This is what i'll be going for:
-7 screens
-upgraded interior speakers
-2 12s'
probably only gonna run around 2000 watts, and all installed in a custom box.

That's all that came to my head right now.
