Really Like the mesh in the front grill, how did you do that. I pulled my front end off once looking at it to do that same thing. Any write up on that? Car looks mean!

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

For the headlights, the previous owner had the Benz projectors already retrofitted but the housing looked like total a$$ and were not sealed at all. So based off of the "what not to do housings" I took a new set of headlights, started with a 2 inch hole saw on the chrome internal part and used a dremel to continue to open the hole until the projector was far enough back. Used the mounting system the previous owner used and secured them down. You can't see but there is a hidden city light in the high beam so when the lights are on the high beam section glows yellow. Ill snap some more pics once the build is complete.

For the mesh in front of the front mount, its just basic like chicken wire sprayed black. Used a flexible and durable silicon to hold it in place.

It looks great, mine used to be so low it tucked 18x8 prodrives on coilovers... I hated it though... dragged everywhere and rode like ass(megan racing)... i sold those and the wheels and put the 17x9 rotas in a lower offset than yours and some 245/40 contis... Im on stock springs and revalved FEALS, but im thinking I want to lower it a bit again and try and getrid of what is left of my "bounce... what suspension setup are you running?

pics of mine

I am running ISC coilovers. They actually ride pretty good for a budget coilover. And they have softer spring rates then the bc's
