    Were on the 3rd motor now....cracked the frame last year so it was either get a new frame...or backhalf it
    Now its backhalved with ladder bars, minitubs, coilovers and a strange rear end....I hope it is out in november.

    Looks good, what is the new color you are going to paint it?

    Where are you from in Illinois?

    well I really like the lexus mica red...
    but also a bit of a fan of doing it in flat black/primer with bogart wheels with black spacers behind it.
