Finally have gotten my 8 visually how I want it.

Originally had a veilslide body kit on and was dark blue with black stock rims but is a crimson red with some MS Leman rims. I love the OEM front!!

Next is the turbo kit that has been waiting in my room

glad you got rid of the Failside bumper, car looks good.
the CF side skirts look a little out of place with no other CF on it but it's not a bad look overall.
what size are the wheels? look small.

I'll be an echo. You need an undertray, and your wheels look a little small. The bumper also doesn't fit properly.

Looks alright though.

Nice man, what kind of lockers do you have on it? Is that just a suspension lift or a body lift too?

When are you installing the turbo? Can you post pics when you do?

True the bumper doesn't fit tight, car was salvage and got me a deal on a 2004 with 60,000 miles. Considering the shape it was in when I bought it to where it's at now, I'm in love with it!! My friend owns a body shop and so just paid for supplies and some side cash

Rims are 17" so they are a step down and car sits lower then stock 8's

Definitely not perfect but to have something that's nice ( not perfect, not even close ) is awesome especially with low miles, ice cold A/C, perfect leather condition and everything else- I'll take it!

We'll see about the turbo- that's the last piece so everything else needs to be in place first. Soon!
