Well, this week I haven't done ish. I'm on Salary so I don't mind. Anyways, the only two jobs I was givin where:

06' BMW 5series. It is sweet, Staggered off-set Asanti 20"s. Wheels and tires alone were $6400. Well, now I get to do a "M5" Front end conversion. Consists of the front bumper change and lots of vents, ducts, fog lights, etc.

00' Mustang Cobra "R". You know, the Red one with the big wing and huge hood! Only 300 made, Full race, comes with "NO" radio, a/c, backseat. 3000 miles on it. 5.4 ltr, Bad Ass! somehow the guy wrecked it. I am replacing the bumper, front spoiler, header panel. Repairing the hood, fiberglass is blistering. Repairing the rear bumper and trunk lid.

I will take pics in the morning.

I had to stop myself from going into work early to get started.:eek:

Oh, and the Cobra R has lots of power!!! M3 has more than GTO, but this has all the others beat. I've gotten on alot of different cars and this has the most balls.

You get to work on a cobra R. I am so jealous. Those things are incredible for what they are. Does the guy race it? Those babies are at home on a racetrack (could explain the damage too:D )

No, he doesn't race it. It's part of the guy's 401K, he has three awsome cars that he bought ,when he needs to retire or whatever I guess he will just sell all of them off for a few 100 thousand. He has the Cobra R, a BMW Z8 Aprilia, and I think a 65' Jag.

I'm a mustang lover, but i think if i had to pick one, i'd go with the 5 series...You should tell the owner they need new lights too, and send me those...BMW makes my 2nd favorite projectors, 1st being the Acura TL's
