Re: 01 MSM Turbo Build

Stopped by the body shop to check out how the repairs are coming along on the VS front and sides. They look better than new! Only snapped one pic, of the license plate holes being filled.. My contact at the shop said they have put in about 30-35 hours of just fiberglass work repairing/strengthening the bumper...

Kit should be ready for paint tomorrow or the day after.

Small update, no pics yet..

Talked with PSI yesterday, they finished up all their cars for FD as of Tuesday. Finally started work on the IS yesterday afternoon! :D They told me they are looking at having it finished up, and dialing in the tune and dyno next Friday, 4/12. Very tentative schedule, but I may be picking her up next weekend!

Also, just got word that my V:S front and sides have been finished up! They were finishing up the polishing yesterday. I'll be picking them up today or tomorrow!

More updates soon..

Hahaha, hopefully man! They are going to keep me updated with how it's coming along, crossing my fingers that I can pick her up next weekend. I cannot wait to get her back out on the roads again, been over two years already..

And of course! Have a good trip! Let me know when you get back!

In for the surprise!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Haven't had a chance to fix it up yet, but here she is.. OEM JDM rear + lip..! :D The bumper is in very good shape, the marks are just scuffs. No dents/scratches or anything! Now to get it to paint..

Can't decide if I want to leave the center portion of the lip black, or go all silver on it.. Thoughts?

For certain materials, this method of shipping is legit, and the OEM material is super durable. Need to take a hair dryer/heat gun to warm it up and bend it back to shape.

Sick bro!! Yeah, leave that out in the sun today.....we might actually hit 70. haha

I'd say leave it all silver....I don't think you have any other black accents on your car right?

Btw...did you pick it up yet!?

Thanks for the comments guys! And yeah, I should leave it outside, only sun we'll have all year.. lol

But yeah, I do have a bit of black on the car. I have a CF hood, and I'm planning on wrapping the roof once I get her back.. Then maybe a CF trunk down the road. I think I'll go all silver for now, pretty sure they are one solid color from the dealer? Want to show it off, and maybe the black will hide it a little.. I guess I've made my decision! Lol

And Josh, no I haven't yet.. :mad: Talked with them about two weeks ago, they said it would be done yesterday at the VERY latest. Have yet to hear anything. I'm going to call them today, see how it's progressing. Can't wait to get her back, I'm getting the jitters...
