Kind of a step by step on the 2nd part, but damn has it made a big ass change around. The only things you cant see is that one of the headlight moldings was falling off, and I have a rear wiper arm now. Also fixed the oil leak, replaced all the belts, and upgrading spark plugs tomorrow. When I put the new bumper on I saw a big smile on that car, it's doin a lot better than it was

Oh, and the front wiper arms were put on backwards, you can tell on the very first pic

I am thinking about having it repainted next, besides a couple small things since it'll take me a little bit of time to save up for paint and wheels. I asked my dad to ask one of his friends for a price quote, if its not too much then I'll do that then wheels. I am looking at these wheels....

I for a full set plus tires it would be about $600, I just want something basic for now but still sportier. I am also looking for some 7th gen GT wheels if I can find some good ones cheap at a junk yard

those are pretty cool looking. i think the 7th gen wheels would be better imo.

i think those wheels look a lot nicer, plus there is a possibility that they might be a litle bit lighter

I've considered the GT-S wheels, but I kinda like the style of the GT wheels. I dont know for sure yet, I have to wait til my favorite junk yard gets some in and see how much they cost. I'm not lookin for anything big just yet

Ratchet? Looks more like she's brushing her hair in the window reflection.
