    Wow, your GC was clean. It sucks that it had to go. I love the color of the bug eye, can't wait to see the xd-9s on it.

    Not to sound like a a** but wouldn't it have been better to have the fenders done before paint. Nice car anyways. Can't wait to see it done.

    VLAD! whats up dudeski! how've you been.

    I can def vouch for vlad and his clean work. I've seen his old GC in person a few times when I used to live in New England, the guy does great work. I expect nothing less when it comes down to KJ's old bugeye.

    haha I completely agree, when I dropped the car off I wanted the guy from the paint shop to do it, that way if it cracked he could've repainted them. He really didn't want to because he has never really done aggressive pulls and he didnt wanna mess up the fenders since they were mint and I understood. Lukasz however is a pro at rolling/pulling fenders and him cracking paint is the last thing that'll happen so I am not worried. Besides, I got fender flares for the rear, so if the paint does crack, I'll cover it all up.

    Teece! haha I've been good man, how about yourself? Hows the GC or did you sell it lol?

    Thanks homie I appreciate that! And man I miss that GC, that thing was amazing haha, I can only imagine it being stanced :/ That car is going through a lot right now too, blown coils, blown tranny, 22b widebody, CCW's haha hopefully it'll come out good.

    But yeah, wheels will be here Wednesday so hopefully the car will be back on the road soon!

    I've been good brotha. You remember george of the jungle (brian) from RS25? He offered to help me to the head gaskets so I kept the car! GC is running strong.
    Damn that's a big time transform for you're old car, it would have been awesome stanced, hopefully one day mine will be probably not as hardcore as a lot of cars here, since I'm not down for a lot of stretch nor camber, but def some fitment will happen!

    can't wait to see the xd9's on there.

    so I finally got the XD9's, my homie Lukasz (subielove) came over yesterday and he did work. He notched my frame, pulled lock rings off the front coilovers, pulled my front/rear fenders, lowered the back more, some trimming of the rear bumper and other shit to get it all fitted right. Maxed out the camber both front and back as well. It was a 10 hour day but it was pretty successful. All that needs to be done is tucking the wire harness up front asap. Here are some teaser pics for now..

    Its that bad? I don't think it'll be that hard. Just trim the liner, pull out the clips that hold the harness, push it to the side of the frame and zip tie it.

    I don't know lol, I haven't taken it for a ride yet but I know its damn close to rubbing the harness, so before I have a huge problem to deal with I wanna tuck that shit. But yeah, sounds easy enough

    On my hawkeye I pulled out the wire and the plastic clips pushed it up into the fender, and put the clips into holes that were already there. 15 min job was easy as hell.

    Ide figure you can pop out the clips, and completely invert the harness and clip it back in on the other side.
