The Adventures of a DD Cont'd

I haven't had much pics of my car but I have been an active member for some time. I have been collecting and storing as much information as I can that I believe would be beneficial in the future. Thank you to all that took the time to respond to my concerns/questions.

This car has been in my possession for about a year and it has been very good to me, no major issues thus far. I do my best to take care of it and keep him running well. I bought him with 135,000 miles a little more than i was looking for but for the most part it was in good shape and clean enough (You will notice the fender dent when I first purchased the car) for me to work with.

2003 Lancer ES:

After a tune up, fresh tires, oil change, front LCAs, Inner & outer tie rod ends and front wheel bearings, "LG" felt like a new car.

Getting wheels balanced



After 8 months of ownership this happened; ran into by a plumbing truck while parked on the street. My driver side door was trashed.

Didn't work out as expected at first but things eventually ironed out. I ended up having to drive a Chrysler 300 for about 6 weeks. I actually didn't enjoy that very much but I was thankful.

Decided to do a full paint job. Kept the color, I didn't want anything else.

At the shop, prep stage

I did a google search lol! I really couldn't find it anywhere else so that was option. I think it was from a company called cmod. I knew I took a chance but the feedback was decent. Shipping was fast and I had absolutely no issues. I believe they were shipped from Japan?
