day pics. you can see my ****ty primer job pretty well. i need to finish painting but first im going to get some metal primer (i effing forgot to pickup on my hardware run) and finally mount my rear diffuser; im thinking now a custom rear diffuser may be happening however. may sell these foglights and make custom shrouds for projector fogs tho. love the cutoff and i know the look i want. a much better shot of the wheel. 225/50 for the curious on a 16x7.5 ET48 ASA's with chrome centercapsand chrome lugs

alright so parts are being ordered/ shipped now. going to stick with a scoopless hood and the projectors.

HID ebay projectors
LED ebay tails
v5 replica grille

and since my headlights housings were shattered i was distraught. . . but the projector assembly was not harmed . . . so i will try to make it my next project to wire these suckers up as foglights. . . theyre bright as hell and look huge next to stock projectors.

also, since im going to be modifing the tailights ( hate altezzas) im going to need aux backuplights. . . perfect considering i have one good projector fog from before the accident. ill just wire this up as a rear aux back up light.

pictures coming as soon as parts start coming in

Did you shove the deer in your trunk and take it home for stew? If that fucker did that much damage to my car, that's exactly what I woulda done.

hah thanks man; but its almost back to normal now; just not bolted down.



preliminary fitting . . . lots of work to tweak the gaps away



headlights and hood still need to be painted black; there are now fog covers over the wires stickin out and the grille fits like tish but im going to do some work and make it my own. HID's make me excited.
