Finally found a factory firehawk hood. I installed it and plastic-dipped it black for now.

Fixed the rear bumper from somebody backing into me a month ago. Also redid the whole passenger quarter panel. Only cost me $30.

Haven't updated in a while, but I've done quite a bit. The main things I can list are new seats, which are procar sportsmans. New wheels and tires are American Racing torque thrust's, with rear 315 nitto 555's. I also got a NOS plate kit for a 150 wet shot of nitrous.

Also added bmr upper adjustable control arms, I needed them to adjust my camber more than the factory slots allowed, as well as replace the ball joint.

I did a coil relocation, simply bolted the truck coils together and ran a bolt thru the fender well. Also replaced the two 12's with a single 10 alpine e type in a stealth box.

I mounted a NOS plate and solenoids, as well as the bottle which will probably be moved.
