onto some progress. i bought a dx parts car for $ 600 and it ran but wouldnt drive it was an auto and it wouldnt shift. so we towed it home and swapped front clips:



i was swapping front clips because the previous owner "rolled and pulled" the front fenders:

That's a pretty clean hatch. I wish I could find one locally like it.

Good start man. Where did you find all the bulb #'s that you swapped for LED ones?

I learned from my last build thread as long as you keep doing small updates pics, parts your ordering even DIY stuff it will last if you don't no one will bother to look lol

thank you guys for the compliments :) ya i need to redo my core support as well. the tabs for my corners to mount to are cut off and the whole support is not in the best shape nothing in the front lines up right its SOOOOO annoying. when i swap my motor im taking the whole front clip off again. doesnt take long.
