    Sorry about the accident. Hope the trucking company doesn't read this thread or they'll take half credit for your mod. Ha ha!

    Looks good! If you were going to put fogs in somewhere, where could they go? Maybe to each end of the lower grill? Maybe not.

    The eyebrows and washer covers are both wrapped to match the platinum. It was all covered with plastidip like the passenger light, but it was ripped off when I hit the barrel, I have to redo it. Ill take more pics of different angles tomorrow in the sun light.

    As far fogs, I can still put fogs if I wanted to, the stock mounting holes/screws are still there, that what I'm using to mount the mesh.

    Thank you all for the compliments, I'm glad u all like it. I can't wait to have it all painted and finished already!

    That sounds like a plan!. There's a place called tower shop on 595 and university. Every friday night car show, classic cars to imports, and everything inbetween! Then we can go to tootsies!

    I don't like it, I'm a little biased though. It left me looking like this.....



    And the eyebrows are there to cover up the scratches in the headlights.

    Oh ya, the car has been faster than 153

    Re: alittle modification to our front bumper

    I was waiting for u to put in ur negative comments ha. I'm suprised it took this long. I don't think u were ready to sell this car, u are way too inlove with it. And as far as speed, I was catching up to some cars so I had to let off. Eventually ill find a street with NO cars and do it again.

    Re: alittle modification to our front bumper

    Those new Cherokees are beauitful! Nice choice. Yea the damage sucks but apparently I'm getting only a $1400 settlement check. So ill be fixing the bumper myself and buying a used side mirror and having them all painted. Already got quoted so I have a little extra cash which is nice. Ill be getting all new bushings (revshift craddle, diff, tranny, control arms) hopefully get rid of the wheel hop. I'm still trying to convice the wife to let me get headers instead of using the rest to pay bills lol, I don't think ill win that battle though.

    You still get wheel hop? I put the hendrix axle on the drivers side, got rid of wheel hop for me. Only time it would hop is when it was wet out.

    That's a big list for the settlement check, you really know how to stretch $1400.

    Re: alittle modification to our front bumper

    Well a good family friend of mine is a painter for cadillac. Hes painting it for free just need to buy the paint. And I decided not to get control arm bushings, so it'll be like $300 for the rest of the bushings. Used side mirror was $90 on ebay. So that's $400, and paint I believe he said it was $180 for paint and sandpaper etc. So yea $1400 is lasting me a while, the headers battle was lost! So ill have to save for them.
