    I'm quite proud of my car, and if you think otherwise (not only HiJackZX1) I kindly invite you to **** OFF. I don't think that any of you could have done what I have done at my age and income, not even close.
    my lebaron build in was done with very limited cash, and even less free time, it took almost 2 years to get it to the pictures you can see here---

    things i learned along the way:
    zipties are $5.99 a package and go a long way to making a car look good.
    you can never wash/wax a car enough
    dark tire shine hates white wheels
    to spend one saturday cleaning up all the wires in the car make it much easier to work on later
    lebarons are generaly reguarded as a grandpa/grandma cars, but i would still like to have another one.

    and the most important: don't ever post car pictures online and then tell others to GTFO , esp. when the all the wire runs look like a jungle in your trunk.

    the internet is a public area, and if you can't deal with any negative comments, then you shouldn't post anything.

    I apologize, I was kinda ****ed at the moment and after reading what I had said I realize that I sounded like an *******. Oops.

    I have been slowly improving the wiring since I started. Originally it was even worse!

    I intend the following to be constructive criticism:

    In my opinion, an afternoon spent with some zip ties and maybe even a can of spray paint (for the altoids can), could clean this up quite a bit, and it could look much nicer.

    That being said; It's not my car, do what you want with it!

    PS: I still thing the water canon is awesome!

    I agree. Amazing things have been done. In high school I was to busy trying to maintain popularity. Now a days though, kids can multi task and do projects while still maintaining a life.

    OMFG, you car looked brand f&^king new. WOW, I like that alot. To bad you had to sell it.

    Its ok, some people cant take criticism, and I do give harsh criticism. I'm honest and real, and most do not seem to like that, so I never take their reactions personal. Its like a double edge sword, alot of people respect me for it, but alot of people also hate me for it. OH Well, cant please everyone.
