Default cut out metal

a little while back, i cut out some metal directly behind my divers side headlight. now there is a path for the air to go under the headlight and into my opened up airbox. i noticed a little diffrence before but now whhhoohooo I'm on the highway alot more know b/c of my job and my car runs so nice the engine is real silent and the high speed responce is dope. I still gotta work on sealing off my airbox but after that it should be hot.

alot of you are probably thinking front end crash.. but i realy doubt any structural integrety was lost with the amont of metal i took out

o yeah on a totally unrelated note i took off the only badge on my car, the trunk pontiac one. i was worried about there being a color diffrence since it'* 8 yr old paint but it looks like it was never there. it was mad easy too soon i'm gonna paint the reverse lights w/ red stain glass paint leaving a white circle for the bulbs.

ehh well i figured i'd post some craple since i haven't really recently. wouldn't want to make anyone think i jumped ship or something.

ok pce
