Big box today...

Finally, something to smile about. My car is in the "hospital" undergoing orthopedic surgery. The frame was in traction this morning. The plastic sugeon is going to do rhinoplasty & gross reconstructive surgery of her anterior surface. Basically it's getting the frame straightened & we're gonna start the bodywork tommorrow. I got something to help cheer it up before it comes home. VIS carbon fiber Hood, has a raised scoop (thought the oem version was coming). Overall it's nice, just polished it.

i don't mena to be a pesimist but frame straightening is not a good thing make sure the car drives right before you start modding it again. sometimes cars don't recover from accidents if the frame gets bent

It's not that bad. The left side frame rail was pushed down a little over an inch. I have seen much worse pull out. The machine has laser guides, when it comes off it's back within stock specs. That's old school b.s. If the right parts are replaced or repaired almost anything can be brought back. I helped literally cut a prelude in half & rebuilt the entire rear end. That car was totaled by the insurance co., but the owner was in love with it. It was rebuilt, passed inspection, & is on the road now.
