You should totally copy Rhys's car. lol
It was technically his car anyways haha...jk

01-26-2010, 07:19 AM
^^^

do your own style man.

i understand you like how rhys or ryans car looks like, but do your own thing to be unique.

i would be pretty pissed if someone kept asking me or copying what i do to my car to there own.


but keep the build goinggg.

suprame
01-26-2010, 09:33 AM
Okay I'll do something different. Thanks Reggie. And I dunno if anyone noticed but ryans pins arent in the location that they are in that pic I moved em over the headlights. And I guess that's what I'm gonna do :devil:

01-26-2010, 09:40 AM
sick man!

You say the car's been around the block, have you touched the maintenance side of things yet?
