About “Gothic Smurf Mobile”

Brought this car fab 7 2009.with an blown engine.188k miles on body and trans.new engine i paid $300 for with 70k miles.i didnt plan on doing any mods to it cause i figure i have it for a few months and sale for an car i wanted.but my friends had parts for it and so i started to modified it,well 1 thing leads to another to another to what it is now....i do all the work myself unless its something that requires an tool i do not have like exhaust,it is installed by an an local shop near me.it is an custom exhaust 2 1/4 from the header back .it is an cat back exhaust..with an high performance fartcan muffler.no ebay cheapo's.
most of the parts i buy are used,cant really afford brand new parts and some parts are damage, so with used its not an total loss like body kits if it gets damage which it does alot.i wont be losing 1000's some dollors,only a few hundred.

just recently sanded it down and primied it all.8 cans of primier and about 22 hours into that

as of now.with new parts i had replaced,and modified parts like body kit.rims,audio etc,,,,i have a little over 3400 dollors into it,if i brought all new i be close to 6k in parts.

it is still under construction.and will be for quite some time yet,
so check back for updates and new progress pictures
