It has nothing to do with the money or the added value!!

True, true!

 

My Fav is a '51 Kaiser resto-mod I saw on Jay Leno's Garage  -  Google 'Jay Leno 51 Kaiser' and watch the 15 minute YouTube video  -  8 years and lord knows how much money, but other than the paint, that very talented young man did every bit of it himself  -  Keep in mind it started out as a 4 door Kaiser

Cool upgrades! I'm curious about the sound of your custom exhaust.

Funny you say that. I heard it start up. Annnnnd. Well it’s loud. Especially on a cold start.....sounds like it’s cammed. Here are a few new pictures sent to me from the shop.shows the camera underneath the wing, and the dual exhaust well. That is a real functional carbon fiber wing as well

Maybe a fog unit or some machine guns in the turn signals!

I actually did Morimoto Gatling switchbacks in the lamps.

For starters....they changed the lip design so it looks more streamlined the GLI custom lip is now going to be a custom splitter, and the side canard splitters cover the original gap. Did the headlights and custom fogs, and also installed fully functional RS hood vents with a custom drip tray underneath. Went on the sides so it wouldn’t affect the structural integrity of the hood and so it doesn’t affect water dripping on the coil packs. Still stoked to see this come to completion!

Sorry for the poor resolution photos. Screen snapped them from a video. I’m seriously happy. One few minor change will be the front lip. When it went into the shop, it was aggressive but not clean. It’s now clean but not aggressive. I have a fix for this and it will get back to the style I need. But enjoy these pics for the update. 

 

Floor lighting is the same interior green.

 

Yes that’s a tv for tailgating.

 

New headliner.

 

Car show detail rack.

 

99% of where I need it to be. Front lip fix then done!

So it’s ready to get picked up. She’s a beaut. I will soon get it painted and I think I am going to keep the lower trims black.

 

I will post some vids of the exhaust starting up next weekend.

If you like the dropped look when parked, go air. If you like to ride low all the time, go slammed suspension....thats what I did. Youll never get the air slammed look with adjustable coils, but you can always ride in that position. You cannot safely ride with all the air out of the bellows in an air ride setup....

 

Things to consider with air....Most likely it will be a custom setup, and a tank will need to be placed.....so you may lose some interior space. For suspension, look to the UK. I believe the company is called modyourconnect. This is the kit you would get for static lowered:

Will you keep it white or do you have something else in mind?

I think I'll go with the struts.. much more affordable and definitely easier to install. Looks pretty good with the 20s.. a small drop will do the trick.. thanks for the info.. !!

I am staying with the white scheme. Doing a Balloon White satin dip. On the fence for the lower trim and wheel arches. Either keep them black or do everything in white.
