I think black would be cool but what about a gunmetal? And normal teenager stuff only conjures up two images in my head so I'll assume the best and give you a hearty internet handshake!

Had a run in with the local police force today, looks like getting the front corners done will be more of a priority than I thought

I'm sure you noticed, but just incase you didn't - the tub narrows from the center to the back almost a full inch on each side

Well guys sadly there is no huge write up, we still have to do the shocks(which will be completely temporary) and bump stops.

The corner armor will go on this weekend. I'll be calling the police station like the officer told me to if I needed an extension. Praying they'll give me another week or two.

to add apparently no one local can lengthen a cv driveshaft. So I bit the bullet on a Tom woods 1350. Saves money in the long run atleast.

Why not 1350? I personally wouldn't do a 1310 rear with 40s
