Well Why not get one of these started :wootrock:
Seems like the thing to do. I started with a brand new 09 auto X off of the lot and never would have thought she would grow into the Pearl she is now.

Fresh out of dry dock - May 2009.

I drove her bone stock for a year, before I took her out wheeling for the first time, then it was all downhill from there.

more pic and story to follow!

After a run-in with a tree on another outing I decided to chop and cap the stock bumper. Feeling fancy I used black silicone in between the caps and the bumper to make it more of a seamless look, then bedlined the whole thing.
