    Never washing it AGAIN.

    So. I mentioned there would be some changes.

    The front suspension was reworked again. Now, it's about a half inch lower all around, with the rear at its lowest and the front at it's highest. Yes, the front is cranked all the way up, and has 3.5" of shock travel. I def gotta acquire some hubcentric spacers for the front(temporary universal 10mm currently) because on the freeway this thing vibrates like a coin-op motel bed.

    The exterior is copper. Not copper colored. Actual copper. Which I later patina'd. It's a process I'm getting used to, and will refine, so don't expect the car to look the same the nest time I post. Might look better. Might look worse. As you can tell I take stance and wheels seriously, but little else. The exterior was a risk, and I like it.

















    ...and no, this isn't how we achieved the patina, but it was an idea that was tossed around.

          Your car got peed on.

          It's definitly different, dunno if I dig though. The color of the car is the hawtness.

                    Fuzz - the rears are 20mm. All fenders are "rolled" vertical. I rub like hell on anything and everything, but I can deal with that.

                    Also, just a little before action if anyone didn't recall(lowering round 2 and 5mm up front)... last week. Yes, the paint looks good, but honestly it was chipped, scratched, dinged, and looked like someone brillo'd parts of it.

                      Love it, it's badass! Diff bumpers and that would be hard to top! (and maybe less patina)

                              That is really awesome.

                              Where and how was this done? The patina sucks.
