    So instead of filling my build thread up with this thing I decided to make one just for the shitvic.

    The day I bought it.

    [​IMG]

    First thing was first, it needed a buff really bad. Left is done, right isn't. This thing must've seen nothing but coin-washes since day one.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was debadge and drop.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Since the previous owner trashed the front cover I got a new one. No chance I'm having the ugly license plate holes in the front.

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to ebay build this thing.

    Tinted the lenses, of course.

    Dropped again.

    Not bad but still needs to go a mile lower.

    Wheel spacers came in

    [​IMG]

    After installing the wheel spacers, spraying the front lip, and spraying the side skirts, I finally gave it a wash. First time for the year.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Took it for a drive and realized I can't do this without rolling these fender lips in. So I used my specialty vehicle-specific tool.

    [​IMG]

    And that's a big fat NO for the new wing.

    High class indeed, as always

    Yeah, it's not as bad on them for some reason. Still wanna pick up a set of wheels for it though.

    Oh you know I don't go down those roads. That's right along with Plastidip.

    I actually thought the wing that was originally on it worked. I've always wanted to make an Ebay mobile.

    Sticker stripe is gone. Although the 40hp is lost, this particular vehicle has PLENTY to spare.

    It did, actually. I was just looking for something different. It seems to work without it also. I'm sure I'll end up throwing it back on.

    Good lord I know. Cranking out country, tattoos down my arms, spitting Copenhagen into a plastic bottle, and wearing cowboy boots which they obviously can't see.

    This thing is hysterical. I remember you texting me awhile back with the quarter damage, you end up fixing it?

    And I lol'd at Jeremy's comment. I couldn't agree more with him.
