talkin’ bout my benzo… (during)

so stone got a shiny new grocery getter…

you remember, the slightly beat up Mercedes in the above picture…

Recently I made a screaming deal on a set of 19″ axis shine’s and Pirelli PZero Corsa Direzionale’s for the front, and PZero Corsa Asimmetrico’s for the rear…. looks good with the new shoes eh?

Note that I finally managed to get it licensed. I don’t wanna talk about what it took to get this document:

what a pain in the ass. note the dept of homeland security stamp.

love the shiny bits 🙂

so the next day it goes into the body shop and gets torn apart…

thankfully the front aluminum hoop isn’t damaged…

turf the back bumper cover (going with the amg one)

thankfully the frame is straight…

looks pretty pitiful now doesn’t it? 🙁
I was told the circles on the hood are from people slamming the hood, you’re supposed to just hold it up about a foot and drop it….

the doors fixed, the lower amg rocker panel being test fitted in place…

looking pretty swoopy 🙂
I’m going to put coil overs under it and lower it an inch in the tail and 2 1/2 in the front there’s nothing in the trunk, it’s just how they sit…

smooth as a baby’s butt 🙂

the amg front bumper is a totally different piece. way bigger air intakes for the radiator, the intercooler, and the brakes… looks sharp 🙂

and here we are, out of paint and ready for reassembly… notice the color matched door handles… was going to shave ’em but I’m going to save that for the trans am…

I’m incredibly happy with it so far, but it’s going to need another 20 hours or so of reassembly, then the fun starts (coilovers, sound system, etc.)

I’m excited 🙂
