Ha Ha... What's funny is his car seems so unreal to me that I imagine it's only paper mache model!

one thing to remember is that he lives in south carolina with NO INSPECTIONS!!!!!

I am sure that If I tried to do that in north carolina, they would really have a hay day with me.

something to keep in mind

Definitely a good point on those inspections. On the major positive though even though Michigan is a frozen tundra of hell, it has no inspections, woot woot!!!(Awesome!). Anyone feeling a group buy from basjoos:P

There are good pics of it around. What's most impressive, though, is how simple and relatively minor the actual modifications are. Looking at the pic of his car in his avatar, it looks like a futuristic rocketship with a ten foot long nose cone and such; but when you see a larger picture, and especially when you see the pics of how it's put together, it doesn't actually look like much.

the thing that got me was the hatch is functional. that probably took a while to get just right. he also relocated the lights as well. I figure he spent a while getting everything to work out just so.

as far as the inspection thing. in north carolina, they even check the tint level on your windows (if you have tint).

What would be neat would be to do it to a Civic that had some front and rear end damage. You could buy it for practically nothing.

The nice thing about the aluminum bar and sheet construction that I've used for the aeromods on my car is that it only takes a very small and inexpensive tool set to do it. Everything added onto my car has been built with the following toolset: jigsaw, cordless drill (and drill bits), heat gun (for heat setting coroplast and lexan), hacksaw, tin snips, 2 large pipe wrenches (for bending aluminum bar), measuring tape, pipe taps, tap holder, box cutter (for cutting coroplast), philips screwdriver, pop rivet gun, paint brush, and caulk gun. All of the materials came from Lowe's and McMaster-Carr.
