So I finally put together a build thread! My car was somewhat boring before and certainly not worthy of a build thread, but I kept at it and managed to improve her quite a bit.
I'll welcome all polite compliments and comments. Thanks for checking it out in advance. This forum and its members have been vital and integral in each of my upgrades. I can't say enough about the well-versed gents here who've walked me to this point since I was a noob.
Things have slowed down a bit since my son was born in December, but I'll continue adding as I enjoy the car so much that I'll just keep fixing her.
I'll look to improve picture quality as well
Here she is...my BSM 05 LGT. She's been great to me and sitting at
