On these roughass Cali streets:biggrin: Nate you might have heard about it...ripped my bumper off right by the Peppery...that bump is new to me...I actually saw it, but I couldn't slow down to 10mph without killing some people so I took one for the team:biggrin: it looks bad to me, but my body guy should be able to fix it right up...I hope

So your conversion is done then?
We wanna see some pics!!!

well of course the pic I'll put up...it doesn't look like that now because it's missing the front bumper, but I'll put one up...the newer pics have the grills in them, but I don't have them scanned yet

Yes I know what your talking about I am prob the only one that tries to take the little jump at full speed. I love not having a body kit or a lip. I don't even scrape. Give me a call on my cell when you are back in town and I want to take a look at your Conversion.

Shiet mang! From the side shot it DOES almost look like a Bimmer. See what a little front conversion work can do for a car. ;) Looking good, can't wait to see full pics. Yeah, I hit a dip at about 30-35 here in Pasadena one night, scraped the ish outta my CTR style lip, but didn't break it or make it hang off luckily. Only have 4 screws holding it on too, LOL!

Nate-back in Modesto now, but I'll hit you up when I'm back in Sonora...probably sometime this week...I hit the bump going towards the junction...I'm sure the other side is just as bad, but I'm not sure...when I went over it, I didn't have a front bumper:biggrin:
Silver-I like the last shot the best...really just the angle I took the pic at...dude, not to hate on my own ish...but those fenders are kind of whack looking...I mean the color is ugly as sin so that's definitely part of it...luckily I got the real ones from BMW though...and talking about looking like a Bimmer...I mean if it does, then that's probably good, but just to remind everyone, I'm not doing it to fool anyone into thinking it's a bimmer...
I mean this is what I'd want...say we're at a car show for example...these guys are looking at the car...
"what kind of car you think this is?"
"I dunno...I think it's a civic, but I don't know...maybe it's a BMW"
"check the taillights"
"f*** dude I can't tell...it has skyline taillights"
:biggrin: that would be cool...but then most should realize it's not...definitely by the front bumper...not many BMWs with the R33 skyline front bumper, and someone probably wouldn' t put skyline tails on a BMW
Jetts-yeah man...you know how this stuff goes:redface: but I do like the trailer queen idea though...you should buy me another car:biggrin:
naw, but I know trailer queens get hated on quite a bit, but I mean just the condition they're in...I mean it's the fact that trailer queens can STAY in good condition...you've got two identical cars and one's a trailer queen and one isn't...well check out both cars in two months and see which one looks better...I mean battle scars are cool, but not when you don't have a health care plan:biggrin:
