Nice.. welcome to the site. So what are you working on the car?

My guess people will give you a hard time with your rims (not matching and bad off set). It looks like it has a pretty good dash and hopefully interior?

Well, lets not jump to conclusions. From the picture story, sounds like you bought it just like it sits and are now starting to make needed repairs, mabe correcting mistakes of the previous owner. And from the looks of it, getting pretty serious. Good luck with it. Interesting graphics tho. You plan on keeping the graphics?

yeah i bought the car with those rims. and yes i know theyre not right on the car. as of now i am fixing many problems with it that the previous owner caused. for example the wiring harness for the power windows, locks, etc. was cut off. cut all the connectors and all. dont ask me why. the battery was relocated to the back but with a shity ghetto job. wires passing through the dash and yeah its bad. other than that it runs great. i am now working on a completer restore. i am tearing it down completely and working from the ground up. the interior is great nothing missin, no tears or nothing, just some normal ware. i want to go turbo but dont know if the 7mgte or making my 5m turbo will work out for me better. getting into that later on. im a college student currently jobless which will make the build slow as of now but i am determined. my first project too.
