So I'm gonna move the mud flaps in. You guys talked me into it. I ordered star specs for my 14s bc I can't decide on wheels. And I want to hit the track/streets asap. Oh and MOAR LOWZ! Def dragging flaps!

So the front grill and tires will have to wait. The bearing in my water pump is smoked... Gotta order a new pump...

Surprisingly that's like the most expensive part to replace on a mk2. Still 50 bucks for a water pump aint bad

Josh's pic is better because it's in focus, and your is not.
