OK. We'll forget you're trying to pass off hacking up your car as a good thing.

When you said you wanted to paint the trans dipstick, I assume you meant just the handle?

So now I am contemplating something. Do I keep saving for coilovers, which I won't have the money for until next year? Or do I get an srt rear bumper if the price is right? Decisions, decisions. :lol:

Found out after looking at the bottom of my rear bumper that the reinforcement beam is smashed in on the drivers side. So now I am looking at replacing that.

I got a good deal on an srt bumper, so I jumped on that. So I will have to wait longer for the coilovers. Couldn't pass up a good deal. :D

Tuck those accelerator and cruise lines under the IM.

Love that radiator pipe. Not sure if I want to do that, or get the "home depot" pipe. Engine bay looks good, man.

Now to find the thread for it before the twins wake up. :lol:

My twins woke up right after I got done with it. :rofl: I can clean it up more this weekend. My twins come first. After they go down for a nap, I can move the tube that is sitting on top of them.

Accelerator lines tucked now. Doesn't show it here, but I also moved a couple of the lines for the air/oil seperators.

And yes.... I am looking for a battery box for the battery!

Man Ive been debating on that radiator mod for a long time...now that I see it with the blue coolant I think I love it...

But if you want to tuck that accelerator pedal cable more...I ran mine with the heater hoses...basically follow them to the water pump and bend it back towards the throttle body...it bends easily so no worries...that how I hid mine...

Lookin good....

Since I just bought me a srt rear fascia off of neonrt_98. I think I am going to go for a hidden antenna and quicklift system now. My shocks are good for now so the coilovers will be put on hold for now.

Will probably put the hidden antenna at the top of the rear window as close to the roof as I can and then run the wire through the headliner and then down the pillar to the stereo. Will probably have to get an extension to do it. I figure it will make for better reception with it there.

I saw them on racers progress log and liked them, so I had money in my savins for car parts so I ordered them. My coilovers will just have to wait until sometime next year then. :lol:

Right now the car is black, as are the plugs. When it comes time to paint. I am going to have the hole patched up and then painted along with the car.
