well with the laws. From what i was told by my insurance company. I have to take it to State police they have to go over the car to make sure i didnt change the vin numbers and so on. Also have to bring receipts to everything i have bought for my car. Then i got off to dmv to get it re exspected. Yah we will prefit everything and do a so called test shot before we take it back apart to start the painting. As paint comes in mind. I dont know if i want the milano red with the blue flake. or copper red mica, or maybe hrp. I still not sure on my paint ideas.Woopn someone ass would be out of the question she was some freakin hott as blonde model. ha

:stupid: Yeah, i think i would have at least got a date out of it. :D

a date in court after i whooped her ass. haha i laughed when you said he fell down repeatidly after the accident. hmm hot blonde girl runs a red light...noooo stereotypes arent true.


while other colors can be nice, id keep it red, atleast in some parts because of the engine bay and trunk and all that. unless youre pulling the motor and doing it right

Well that is the only thing we are not doing. i wish we were going to pull the engine bay because then i may paint it a prowler orange(stock srt4 orange) or something. Well Any nice reds would be nice. If you have any idea. So far i been looking a copper red mica, and harbanero red pear.l

thats kewl. my car knowledge, limited as it is, trumps the dads by about 10000x over. i remember asking him when I was about 12 or so if he knew how to work on cars and 'soup them up'. he commented that he takes his car to the shop for an oil change because he didn't know where the dipstick even was.


we are still waiting for the test-fit shot, btw
