Yeah it seems like the hard part. Same here, im sure ill need some help from alot of friends. Sounds good. My dad knows alot about cars and has been helping me with my Camaro alot so I hope the drop can come soon. If he retires we will have alot more time for big projects

We lowered my grandpa's 1990 Chevy 454 and it wasn't too hard to do. Just take your time and do it right.

Next on the list is 06 tails, amped door speakers and a new sub/amp combo, and if I can find better plastic for my console I'll get that. Took off the taillights today cause I'm tired of seeing them fogged up and one Of them had about an inch of water in it today. Went back to stock for now.

You should get the pro-tinted ones like Matt has. They look so good.

I know I love those he has. He found me some regular ones on here but I didn't jump on them. Right now I gotta worry about buying a new phone though since mine broke -.-

Lol that sucks. I haven't had a phone in months. I was saving for a iPhone with Virgin Mobile but more than half my money disappeared, and I was just $50 away. I'm stuck with non contract phones.

Yeah, drop it 5 times no effect, drop it the next time and the bottom half of the touch screen doesn't work. So I can't unlock it lol.

I'm using my iPod for my apps right now haha. Idk what I'm gonna do. Those non contract phones seem to be getting more popular.

^^Man those are nice. I'd love to have some like that.

Here are my stock tail lights back on. I really dont mind them, but I still want 06's eventually. Also, the sub/amp combo I ordered. Kenwood ksc-sw11. No poking fun, I needed something small. I've had plenty of systems in my day and I just wanted a little something to put behind the seat. Its gonna fit great and ill have plenty of room for it. Wiring might suck but ill figure it out. I think it might be a good little set up. Also gonna amp my door speakers and stuff with my 4 channel power acoustik amp.
