    Crashed my car up last November in the snow. Finally had the time to put it together since I got it out of the body shop to get the frame pulled and the bay reworked on the driver side. It's been a long haul but took some pics today.

    Here's after the crash....I had just put a new chin spoiler :-/

    Nice progress.
    Was very sad to see that happen after you made such an improvement on it.

    Yeah.....poo happens. Still need to get he hood lined up a little better but once I can get the hood and fender painted I'll probably keep the hood black and go with that look. 7months later I'm back at square 1 LMAO

    Thanks man! Hope to keep making progress with it until Coyote swap lmao

    Thanks!

    My GT is a heffer ...needs a lot of suspension work...motor mounts...little stuff

    Thanks man! That was the main reason I didn't part the car out or scrap it. Just didn't want to see it go to waste plus I'm getting tired of my vert and I might sell the vert and do a Coyote swap or just swap in my 5.0 from the vert.

    Seeing you work on this makes me want another v6 as a daily driver. But I would already have heads and cam lined up.... then suspension.... see I already spent a couple grand. Damn you.... haha jk

    But good work, glad to see you still driving it.

    dang. they did a great job on your engine bay, brotha. Once those pieces are painted instead of dipped, we'll be good to go.
