Way back when I talked about the Riger M5 front add on. Well I had to wait quite a while for it to ship from Germany, then I let it collect dust in my basement for a while, and finally Oct. HIN was coming up so I decided to get it installed. Unfortunately I can NOT do Oct. HIN b/c my cousin from the Philippines is visiting.

I decdided to have the body work done at Last Detail (http://www.thelastdetail.com) Reason being this addon requires cutting of the OEM bumper, and some bonding :bash: I was also worried about paint matching my steel blue car, and since been to Last Detail before, I know how anal they are about getting things RIGHT!!! :clap: :clap:

I dropped my car off this Monday, and should be picking it up Saturday or Monday afternoon!!! :clap:

Steve, memeber on this forum has been taking progress pics so here you go:

Wow, I would trust any shop with a 360 in pieces in the shop. I mean really, they have to know what they're doing. Then again, it could be in pieces because they can't get it back together...:yikes:

Seriously though, I like that air dam, if a little low. Any suspension mods?

I am lowered on UUC springs (and sways) and have 19 inch HM's.

I plan on buying an OEM bumper for the winter, or else start a snow plowing service :mad:

Having the short springs on the stock shocks isn't the best idea anyways.

Get a coil-over set and raise it for the snow. It would be a much better way to spend your money than a whole new bumper.

I agree with the coilover suggestion, but I don't have 1k lying around to spend right now. :mad:

Hopefully this spring I can get some coils. :)

That's a very good-looking lip.

Are you going to put mesh in there, or keep it open?

Any inclination to paint the plastic bumper? (like on the white one you exampled).
I think it'll give it that 'clean' look i mentioned earlier?

hey... what ever happened to that strapless pushup bra?
:eeps:
