well after the accident, i got it back. notice any differences? I put the wheels from my sol on it cuz the ones i had had flat spots. I know it needs a drop but im not going to cuz its my DD and it wont be mine much longer


Heres after a wash but no wax

this is a brand new hood. i paid 40 out of pocket to get the whole front end re-done



And now after

I don't see your problem with steelies, can't get anymore stealth than that.

Nice 4 door btw, i too am rocking the 4 door 6th gen. I prefer the steelies though, i'm rocking mine, rust spots and all. I will probably paint them black again soon. I even spent the same amount on mine to get it running. It's a little more than that now, probably upwards of 3500, but it's getting there.
