very nice. glad pictures are working for you now. looking fwd still to the new interior pix

i kinda like your interior seat color - it actually works with your car color pretty well - makes it look a lil classy.

are those your friends' lowered trucks in that one parking lot pic? they're pretty cool.

U know... I've never thought of my interior color that way until I re-did my dash... the lighter colors do look classy, huh? lol & i'm hardcore about keepin them clean!

Yup, that's my crazy friends... well just a few of them... normally we fill up a parkin lot w/ lowered cars, minitrucks, a few jacked up trucks & a few muscle cars...we're pretty awesome, if i do say so myself! The guy w/ the maroon dime also has a camaro SS & a 00 cav z24 on airride, oh how i hate him so. hahaha, but he's my best friend so... i at least get to ride in those vehicles... ive drove his SS tho, fastest thing ive ever drove! LOL

And I PROMISE i'm gonna get those pix on here soon... might be wed. but it'll b soon...LOL, i didnt take those w/ my phone, so they're better quality, well worth the wait...or so i hope...

hahaha, i dont think i could cut mine...id rub my tires all over the place :lol:
im running on ss/tc struts and shocks, h&r sport springs, and 225/45/17 tires and i have less then a 1 finger gap already, thats why i was trying to figure out how she got 4inches...thats pretty low, must be running a significantly smaller tire by looking at the pics...
