Shee looks REALLY nice like that, the paint job's great (from what I can see) and the colour is sweet too
BTW Where'd you get her painted? If you don't mind me asking...

I'm ashamed to say it was from maaco, I know I'll have problems with the paint and what not, but I couldn't really afford anything else. So my thinking is this, It should last about a year maybe more and that will give me time to build up money in the future to give the car quality job that will last. I think it came out ok, looks better at night since you don't see the imperfections.
All the car needs is a name haha

Looks pretty sweet (although it is kind of dark, but still). Not a bad job, especially if on a short budget. As long as you're happy with it right now, then it's perfect, you don't need a trailer queen.

I have one too, trust me I am already having some issues on the bottom of my side skirts... chances are I'm going to need to have ALOT of money next time I have it painted because I am going to have them re-bond all the trim and body kit as well as I want two racing stripes. Of course that will be a long time in comming.... btw your wheels look AMAZING, mine are mostly pretty dirt and the hubcaps are yellowing.... which is why I am in the process of cleaning, sanding, and repainting them. NICE car though man, did you take care of the rust on it or did you simply have them paint over it? If you didn't take care of that it may come back to haunt you...

as of now I don't really have the money for anything, but its crossed my mind to get some different wheels, never thought about changing the color though. Before I get into the cars wheels I'm giong to put some tints in to preserve the inside more from sun dmg, car cover, new left fog light, new speaker system. So wheels are on the end of the list because in my opinion I don't think they look bad stock.
