have u installed the blues and rb springs yet? if not, i would suggest against them as that's what i had initially on my car and hated them...the rear was very unstable on the street. i ended up picking up a set of illumina's and coilovers, front and rear and it now handles like a widebody should.

So a little update on the car. I am still waiting on having her painted but i decided to have her dipped to protect the primer (not sure if it really needed to be). The color is flat black. The dip looks good in the pictures but up close it leaves a little to be desired. Car now has 19,724 miles on it.

Not driving her much but when i do she attracts alot of attention.

Here are a few pics of her...and the 7BEAST....
