^^ Yeah that's pretty ridiculous.

Got all the GT stuff off today. Taking that crap off and seeing the rust underneath the car made me realize I have A LOT of work to do. Tons of surface rust and dirt and oil. Took a few picks of the underside. They kind of suck because I was on the ground. I'll get some better ones when I get a chance to bring the car to the shop and put it on the lift. ALL of the GT stuff is for sale so PM me if anyone wants anything.

Looks better already

I'd sell it to ya man but I need to have something to put in the hole that's in the bumper cover. The cover would be harder to sell to someone without the insert.

I've decided to replace my rocker panels completely. They are rusted at the pinch welds and I think it'd be easier to replace them than to try and fix the holes left by the ground effects.

I know it. I don't know how to weld and I hate what's coming up. BUT to save the car, it's gotta be done. Luckily my younger brother is a pretty good welder, as is my cousin. I figure I can cut and prep the car and do everything else, then throw them in there with the welders.

for the love of god........ PLEASE


http://www.donathenracing.com/Order.html


drops like 35lb's from the farthest forward point on the car, just about the best possible place to drop that much weight.

I already ordered one for my weight reduction over the winter.

also, I've never removed the front clip...... lol... how hard is it?

Thanks for the link!! I'm definitely going to be buying those.

Not hard at all. You can leave the lights in if you want. If you can unscrew a nut then you're in good shape. I just stick my arm down inside with a quarter inch ratchet.
