Thanks guys.

There is still a TON of bodywork to be done. Nothing else custom just misc. dents and touching up here and there. I'm super lazy too so it'* going to take a while. I'll be doing it every once and a while till next spring. Hopefully I'll get it painted by next spring/summer but i did say the same thing last year.....
Color wise, I'm planning on a rich burgandy-redish-maybe metalic color. And the grill will be gunmetal to match the rims.
1.5 to 2" drop springs are what I'm plannin on next. I already have KYB-GR2'* to go with them.
Just to give you an idea, this is the better side and heres all the stuff I have to finish:

You got skill man.

When your cars all painted itll actually look like it belongs there. Unlike Civics with Supra lights or even this guy
