After all the trouble you went through to get it painted...that's kinda funny B.

So, I take it you finally got it de-modded.

I sold the DRM hood and TS nose early this year... I am re-doing the car, but not repainting it for awhile. Doing my supension and exaust this winter (Pfadt, ARH, Corsa) ten getting new CCWs then going to drive it as McVette for awhile. Spending a bunch on my house this winter so the car can take a back burner for awhile.

I feel you, I have new wheels, C6Z's (18 x 9.5 & 19 x 11) just sitting in the shed, and things keep coming up that take me away from putting rubber on them...ugh

Manager at McDonalds gave me free breakfast one Saturday AM... that was funny. I think your average person doesn't even pay attention. I'd guess most people would think it was wrecked and repaired but not painted yet.

Honestly it doesn't bug me at all because I'm not really focused on cars and when I eventually do re-do it I want to paint it like a C4 GrandSport.

They're not FRCs (fuel rail covers)... they're real valve-cover and the coilpacks are hidden.

Thanks! I joked with Ed that LG should send little plastic replicas of the coilovers to hang from the mirror. They are absolutely beautiful and WORK!
