Welcome "Nessy" :)

Hey guys, so after 2 years of it being under the knife, it is running and moving! So happy with the results and the power is PERFECT with this vehicle, I am loving it.

Few things I need to complete are revamp the blower motor, fit the driver door support arm(ripped the screw through of the door ), OBC LED lights replacement, roll the front fenders, raise the front end 1/4-1/2" due to extreme caster from lowering the vehicle, figure out why the radio resets every time I start the car lastly see why the ECU is humming(think its the ground from the 2 prong ground bolt that it has, just can't find the dang bolt).

Looks awesome. Congrats on getting the install finished. Just recently had my car fitted with an M62.

some nice pics. personally, i am a fan of just removing the plate rather than blurring it out.

are the rear wheels a larger diameter than the fronts?
