    I really don't give two shits about anyone else on this site so ... :greddy:

    I thought I would share my fucking stupid civic with you guys and see if this thread can last without being removed or deleted. I do plan to shoot the car very soon and thought some of you guys might be interested in the story behind it before I shoot it.

    So..many of you guys know about my fantastic luck of 2 drunk people backing down the side of my car in two weeks. Well the ol girl is in the shop finally.

    I have 00 rear bumper going on..99-00 urethane rear oem lip and 00 tail lights. Shaved emblems and an amazing body/paint job by Jon LeFevers.

    Jon was nice enough to take the car in on a thursday and get straight to work. Here is the work he has sent me from his phone through out the process from thurs until now! :mrgreen: I plan on keeping this updated from start to finish/

    anyways, on to the storyline

    This was the start of it with drunk driver ...

    I hope your jambs are getting painted. How come you didn't shave the antenna?


    Looks like he does amazing body work there.

    Well, you could try not being a whiny little bitch who needs to be respected before you feel comfortable speaking your mind...

    What's wrong with getting your car fixed/painted right? I like the less is more approach. Clean looking car.

    Devin, how much was your paint job? I want to change the color on mine, and my dad's like "good, lets do it, it's gonna be around $700, right?" I nearly :rofl: .
