    One last thing. I have to take it to an exhaust shop to have the passenger side adjusted because it's sitting lower than the right. Here's what I already have done: I VHT'd the sidemarkers and third brakelight. I have one coat left on that, and a few coats of clear to do. I got my shift boot ring in from farmer today, and I love it. It fit perfectly. The blackouts should be here later this week, I'll probably be ordering the rear blackouts and interior lights. OHH, also,

    Electrical probs- pre accident- when I would shut the car off, and open my door, the radio would go off, now, its when the passenger door opens that the radio turns off. anyone know what that could be?

    Looks like a decent repair job. A few issues, but nothing that can't be massaged out.
    Nice looking car collection by the way. Didn't see the Sky in the sig. Always wanted one of those.

    Sorry bout your car dude, I knw how it feels it happnd to me more than once. It seems that it's. Tottaled. But try to get the more you can out of it. And if u spnt 2000 on it n u got the receipts. Show a copy to the insurance company. The will not give u $2000 but they can add part of it to watever they gonna give u for the car. Idk what state u at. Bt in cAli by the law once the insurance company pay you for the car. They offer the car bk to u most of the time for cheap bt it will be salvaged tittle. Bt who cares u knw your car already. If you r lucky u might take it bk to you fo $200 dollars or alittle more. I'm sure where you are should be the same thing.
    I'm sorry that happnd to u it's a nice bird

    here's a few pics i snapped. I'm waiting for the rear wheels to be finished being powdercoated black. I know everything's in a transistional stage right now so the mixture of gold and black looks a little off. Soon im gonna be lowering the car, taking the gold birds off, and replacing them with black matte.







    it needs a bath

    It'll look better once alot of the gold is off and lowered. I'm keeping the front plate bird on there as i think it gives it a good contrast.

    It has a big wing!

    You know to be honest man, I was reading through this whole thing right now and kept thinking (Just drop it and get another bird) and I started to really feel your frustration!!

    And now that you have it back..........woah. I salute you for not giving up on her!

    She looks great! They did a great job! I couldn't tell in that last pic very well but did they fix up the gap on the bumper? it appears to look much better in the most recent shot...

    Anyways, congrats on getting her back!
