    Oh yeah, this car has been a pain in my ass for the last 2 years, I bought it off a guy who left it outside (in the spot those first pics where taken) for two years, didn't start it, or move it an inch.

    Pitted, so pitted
    that new bumper looks so much better.

    Too bad you're car is too low now and it will be thrashed shortly by steep driveways and speed bumps.

    Look at the picture with the black wheels on, that's the current height, not too low at all, I don't need to drive like a douche to get into driveways or over speed bumps :)

    The two bolts holding the rebar on are sluts to get off, but once you get that done with, it's fairly easy. Only advise I can give, use all brand new parts and save yourself some headache (that's what I did.. made a world of difference)
