Got the front springs and struts on! Went to do the rear to find a destroyed top hat and the earliest I can get one is Tuesday so I guess the rear will have to wait till next weekend.

Just having the fronts on has made a major improvement in handing and overall driving!

Really impressed with how well the car handles with just the front. Makes me super excited to see how the rears compliment along with the notdestroyed top hat.

Side skirts are in the mail, along with a bunch of lighting stuff. Trying to make up my mind swap wise, but I think I'm coming to the right conclusions for what I want!

Had the front caliper seize on me, and as much as I wanted to upgrade rather than replace, I was pressed for time. So replaced with remanufactured one and am now hard core on the lookout for a brake upgrade. Went to put rear suspension on but was stop by some stubborn strut mount bolts. After some broken tools and choice words, I decided I was gonna let her beat me do I committed to FINALLY getting the rear RA flaps on.

Found some time this weekend to retrofit my headlights and I'm super excited for the results! Parts used will be in mod list, I'm iffy with my HID color choice (6000k), I kinda prefer a whiter look but I may get used to these!

That's one of the few pics I have on my phone of the lip. Yes, bugeye 3 piece lip that's actually made to fit the RS bumper. I got it with the intention to wait untill I got a V6/RS bumper but got impatience haha it's doesn't fit that great, but the look has grown on me and you can't really tell how bad it fits until you are on top of it. It's mounted with self tapers, a heat gun, and some patience.

Also, visited the shop where I'm planning on picking up my swap and I think I'll be able to do a bit more than first planned! Stay tuned!
