I'm on CORN YO!

Default I was going to wait but it might be next year....

Most of you know what happened to my car at the track. Passanger wheel came off stripping all 5 studs and all 5 lugnuts. Don't ask how or why, because I don't know. I have all 5 lugnets so they didn't fall out while I was driving along the way.

It took 6 hours to install the drivers fender last night noting fit, if I installed the fender where the bolt holes went there ws a 1/2" gap between teh edge of teh fender and the door. If I pushed teh fender towards the door then teh headlight gap was huge. I had to cut, dremel almost clip or fastener area. Thank you SEIBON I haven't ventured into the trunk or the hood yet.... Oh, I did try to install the trunk but none of teh stock hardware fits. The bolts are all to big for the holes. (that's what she said)

It will be PIMP because I am doing all the work, but it's going to be a long, long week.

Brakes Powdercoated new bumper, limited lip, fog lights, big wing all still at paint. It's slow but tuning out nice.

I'm surprised to hear about the poor fitment from Seibon. My cousin has the hood and trunk and doors and say they fit as well as OEM.

I like everything except the hood. Those brakes look great! And I like how you casually throw in (that's what she said).

I haven't installed the hood or trunk. They might fit perfect (other than all new hardware). The fenders took lots of tweaking. Even when I finger tight the top 4 bolds along the engine bay area. the 2 bolts by the headlight had to be stretched to line up as welll as all the bolt holes along the door as well as leaving a gap in the door. I took some phone pictures of the gap, but they turned out pretty ****ty. I basically stretched the fender out and around to get things to work, after I drilled, cut and dremeled everything I am 8/10 satisfied with it. Tonight I will try passanger side. I was planning on cutting out the fender lip anyway. They come 10mm wider, but they extend the inside lip 10mm to fit stock fender liners.... What's the point in that? Made my own modded fender liners so that is awesome.

It's a good thing I am so good with my hands....

Damn man, this is the first I heard of this. And you're still aren't sure how it happened? That had to be some scary sh**. I'm sure the rebuild will look sick.
