1st + 2nd upgrade, before and after

A few weeks ago I was washing my car, and I really hitting the front bumper hard with the pressure washer. Trying my best to get all the bugs off. Guess it was enough to blow a chunk of paint off about the size of a silver dollar. Knowing that I was in for some body shop work, I push up my time table on a lip kit, and slide back some other things I have on my list to do. I really wanted a full US OEM optional kit, but know finding sides in good shape is almost impossible, so I opted for a JDM Type-S lip and for good measure some JDM fogs w/ 35w 3k hids.

Nice! You could of just got some replica side skirts, Just need some extra elbow grease to get onto your car. But overall I like the Type S lip a lot better then the OEM

Lamin-x hasn't been ruled out. I'm on the fence, but for right now I'm enjoying the clean look.

As for whats next, I ordered a set of Polk 6.5" components for the fronts since I blew out both listening to the sound track to "The Avengers".

After that I'm gonna do some maintenance, Timing belt and some seals. Clutch and flywheel. The rest will come next year I think.
