Philip came by this weekend and I took delivery of the P5 Nugget. I'm excited to have it in my den of vehicles.

I believe he grabbed some pics so you should see some updated pics of the car shortly.

I love the blue. wait till you see all that's going to be that color. Subtle.

The color scheme of this car is baller I believe. Anyways, even without any real information on the removal of the ABS system I'm going to do it. Too much clutter and I absolutely hate ABS to begin with. Similar to Lowtege, I'll be going with the Chase Bays booster delete kit and other stuff.

How far into it are you going to do? Pull fuse and remove the abs bulb would be the easiest but your ebrake light might be on.

Hah, wow great to see you moving around on here again. Do you still have your pro? I actually loved your car and what you were doing to it. It's amazing to hear you liked my car, I did too... it was just too much over too much time. Starting fresh.

Need to update in a few days.. but I picked up all the parts from the powdercoater. They look amazing.

Looking for a new photo upload service that's not the worst s*** like photobucket.
