    How very cool and timely too! Since finishing the Magic Bus and turning it into my daily driver, Calvin is getting his mid life crisis refresh right now!! The badly chipped hood and front bumper (no clear bra) were swapped for freshly painted items yesterday and for the time being I am leaving the driving lights off. New clear bra installation today, then reinstall my coilovers to tinker with them some more, move the black NM wheels off the Magic Bus back onto Calvin where they belong! :Thumbsup::Thumbsup:

    Nothing in life is constant except-change!

    facelift almost done

    have to pull the hood grille out and flat black the painted area that shows thru and fit the lower grilles, but black NM wheels and coilovers are back on and we are low again!
