Default Intro and hello

I wanted to get a chance for an intro and hello. Just picked up a 1997 3/4/5. The car was a 8/10 condition. Interior was 9/10 but the car needed a new trailing arm, axle, all new bushings, bearings. I changed out and replaced to brand new all fender liners, mishimoto cooler, Depo HID headlights, Amber corners, x brace, front and rear strut bars. The car has 200k miles, runs like a champ. New water pump, new plugs, powder coated all wheels. KW coil overs and shock tower reinforcements.

Been changing our little tid bits here and there, making the car fresh and new. Always wanted one since I was in high school in 1994.

The body has some very minor scratches but no major door dings or dents. The rear trunk lid is dented so I have a spare one with OEM spoiler that Iím preparing to change out to. Anyway, on to the pics

Welcome; however, with no pics, most will think it didn't happen!

Sorry about the pics. I will figure this out. Great to join and look forward to contributing.

A few things on the menu:

1. Possible body paint
2. Air filter/intake upgrade
3. Change out the rubber weather strip totally

Nice pickup. Probably went down the line next to my car... (12/96 build).

Looks interesting so far from the pictures you shared despite the small images...be aware that the possible body painting can cost north of $5,000.

yeah, unless you just want to spend money I would stay away from painting it.

I had some rust coming through and took that time to have them fix the bumpers, but before that I dealt with the bumpers (and other parts) not being perfect. I would be too anal about everything if it had an absolute perfect paint job.
