State of the Union, eh?

Well, my journey started here in July of last year.

Now, I'm here:



It's not very pretty or fast (yet), but it's a pile of fun to drive. Big thanks to Boxer2 for dealing with my stupid questions and the additional hands throughout the last stages of the build. Without the help, it'd probably be festering in my driveway for years to come.

Wow Dave, you're a lucky man! My wife would have shot me in the face if I even attempted that in the drive way!

So I guess you got a bit ahead of yourself when you ordered the is lip

car needs a complete suspension, brake over haul first

haha, one of my rims is cracked on my other set and doesn't hold air. So I was sick of having to fill it up everytime I turned around. Throw on the new set! Now I need shorter lugs.
