Temps over 50...it was time to play!





I'm waiting on the shocks and sway bars to get here for Phase II. The Springs have already shown up...they're lonely. 8)

lookin' good, now you have to paint the lower valences to get even better effect :thumbup:
I know. I've been looking for someone in my area that I'd trust to do the job. I sse so many Ricey cars running around here with peeling chipping paint on their addons, that I'm getting worried. I don't want to have to move to CA just to get my worked on! LOL 8)

BTW, I got a wild hair up my a$$ tonight at 10pm and debadged the B5. My hands were numb (36 degrees) but i got it done. Threw on some Zymol and it looks sweet! Can't wait to see it in the mornin! (supposed to rain/snow tomorrow-yuck :p )

Mike,

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Definitely a nice change.

Which grill is that, Kamei right? Is it metal or plastic? Is it painted black?


It has always amazed me how a simple grill replacement can really improve the looks of the car. My OEM grill has a small crack, so this Spring it may be time....

It's the Kamei grill. It's a nice powder-coated metal grill! I thought by the pics that there was some plastic, but all metal!
Later,
Michael

I actually prefer the regular grille to the Kamei. But you definately did a nice job.

Dammit,

I wish I had enough spare dough to get one of those. Spike 2k is driving my car. I don't remember having dice on the mirror.

Do you mind if I ask how much you paid for it and where you got it? I'm thinking of doing the same for my '01. Thanks.

You should cut the plastic bars that you can see thru the grille, its really easy, and it makes it look a lot better.... thats what I did
Cutting anything makes me uneasy :nervous:
I was thinking of just painting them flat black.
