    WoooHooo!

    I finally bought some paint and had a body shop squirt some paint on em. Cost me about 70 bucks for the paint, and about 130 for the labor to get em squirted. They came out awesome. I'll post up some more pics once I get the car cleaned up some more and get the sideskirts (EGT) and stuff put on it. Tell me what you think...and before anyone asks, yes I know I need to get some new mesh, that's all I had, and thats the only way I could mount my plate...

    These last two are kinda teasers...they're some Mazda MX6 buckets I picked up for 20 bucks each... gotta make some brackets and stuff. They're very similar to MX3 seats, but they're all one color, have an adjustment to raise and lower the front of the drivers seat, they're true buckets with a pan and no springs, and they're a lot lower than MX3 seats, which is good cuz I'm 6'2". And the pass side side has a pocket to put junk in on the back of it. Nice find.

    you need a bodykit because the spoiler looks redonkulous without more car being there, ya know??

    looks good though, I would have added more to the front bumper though...

    Well, first time I ever played around at constructing stuff with fiberglass so it's pretty basic, shaved the emblem and plate, and made the notch in the bottom for the plate and made two little lips on either side...somethin different, I got another Tracer bumper I might play with next...who knows... ;)

    Someday I want a buddy club kit. But hey, what can I say? I've still got my stock trunk and spoiler...

    I like the front. If you want more there, maybe make a custom splitter to add on the bottom.

    Yeah I was thinking about a CF splitter or something on the bottom of em...and lowering it, it'd make it look a little lower to the ground.

    The spoiler was a really good deal, so I picked it up...my girlfriends brother had it, and bought it for 200 bucks, I payed him about 50 and painted it.

    I really like that front end. Distinctive and nice without being over-
    done like a lot of the "Star-Fighter" cars I see on here.
    It's a car that pulls up next to you in a parking lot and you think
    "JAFE (just Another F-ing Escort)." Then you look again and think
    "WhaDaHe!! model of Tracer is that nose off of?"
    I like cars that are sort of sneeky about looking cool-beans! You find
    something new every lap you make around them.
