Looks great Gina, go for those tails, I have them too, they aren't necessarily easy to install but well worth it! :D Red Rider got me through the install :bowdown:
Wow Gina!!! They look great! :bigthumb:
Whoa, looking great girl! Busy, busy, busy doesn't begin to describe it! And a good start to the 08 season. Wow! Pepper is a lucky bug. Mike wheels look great! Mike has good taste. :D
Go for the black roof too, will sort of complete it I think. Must be fun driving, it's a whole new bug. Congrats!! :D Pepper is hot!

Hey Gina, Pepper is looking great! I think bang for your buck the Obar is a pretty good investment. I am running a simple suspension of Eibach coils and Bilstein TC's with the Obar. (it was Mikes, he ran the Obar with it and suggested it) Granted my girl is just a commuter but I really liked the improvement with the Obar added. I felt it contributed quite a bit to the improved handling. A bit of work to get in , but all do-able with good bits. After doing a bit of searching I decided not to do a front after market sway and just leave that the stock sway.

I got a quote of $315 to do my roof. It's under heavy consideration. They said the car would be down for 4 days, that may be my biggest hurdle.

Jeez, I have no clue. I let my dash pieces dry for a week at least. I thought 4 days was reasonable, but I can't say I really know :eek:
