What's been new with the car?

Can you tell?





Would have taken pix myself but someone broke into the car and stole my camera gear. Waiting on an insurance check to pick up a new Canon 50D and some glass. Feedback on the car in the meantime?

LOL yea, just don't remember if I had posted that or not, but that's done as well. More things to come in the spring/summer but the car is out of mod season for now, I want to spend the fall/winter redoing some things (4300k HIDs instead of my 6000k, small wire/EGR tuck in the engine bay, yellow fogs maybe, and some interior bits).

What's new with you dodger, how you healing up from the accident?

Enh, they only discovered in early June that I had blown my ACL, nearly destroyed my LCL, and broke my fibular head. So I had surgery on that at the end of July, almost spent my birthday in the hospital haha! I'm just restarting physio now, kind of sucks because it's pushed me back several months, but I'm doing good

Good to hear man

More stuff on my end

Intake system re-done from polished/chrome to wrinkle black, just have to sort out a vac leak and everything is back to normal.









Also on the wrinkle black paintlist:
Washer tank
Coolant tank
Silver charge-pipe by the headlight
Strut Bar Bases

Would like to get t-bolt clamps for everywhere as well.

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

Cause I think it will look better black and red rather than black/red/chrome/silver

More shots from John
