New from Georgia

Figured I'd jump on and introduce myself...see what kind of ideas and knowledge I could gather from the board. We've had our 2005 xb for about a year but we just recently decided to start fixing it up. My girlfriend actually dailys the xb and decided she was ready to finish it up. When we bought it we had to immediately get some brake work done. It was already lowered on a set of black konig wheels. Its got a full apexi exhaust and the previous owner had installed a set of eibach springs. I put a set of old school usdm pure wheels on the xb yesterday and spent the day painting a few of the interior pieces. I'm hoping to have it on coilovers and new paint by the end of march. I'm also looking for an old school looking roof rack if anyone has any ideas.

Here's what she looks like today...there front windshield is being replaced so please don't flame the tint strip...

Rear is at full low...front is coming down another half inch this weekend. I just installed the coils last weekend and the wheels and tires are a few days old.

I lived in kennesaw for about 6 years.

Re: New from Georgia

Welcome welcome! It's so good to see the GA populace increasing here... I'm up in Cartersville, work in Kennesaw. I've sort of dropped out of the loop the past 2 years here (I blame it on having a kid) so I've not been able to do any fun stuff with my '06 PW. Was thankful to borrow my brother's garage last weekend to do an oil change/oil filter/air filter/fluids topped/tire pressure fixed. Probably going to be replacing the belts very soon (nasty squelch going on) and desperately need to get an alignment and rotate/balance the tires.

This is a freaking AMAZING community here on clubxB, with some of the most awesome people you could ever get to know. We have the full range of expertise and know-how between all of the members, and people are more than happy to jump in if you have any questions. Couldn't ask for better group of people.

So again, I say WELCOME!

~It never fails, I'm almost always in some sort of crisis. lol~
