Dr. Evil's hideaway and ongoing modifications

Completed my first mods today. I know its not much but its a start. Installed the BMR trailing arms today. This garage is primarily where the car will live when not out seeking to take over the world. I'll continue to update as mods progress along with any maintenance issues that arise. I do most everything myself as you might have guessed.

As always, pics included...

Not to bring up the topic of how much things cost, but I really am curious. I've dreamed of having my own lift. Though the girlfriend probably wouldn't appreciate it

Its ok, I am much more jealous of your mods to your car.



Shadow,
I dont have a particular order for mods but what I'd like to do is the usual headers/exhaust/tune/CAI and see where it is for HP/trap speed at that point.
I'd also like to do some more susp mods as well to firm it up and lower it a bit.
Theres also a few minor cosmetic changes I'd like to do also.




The lift isnt that bad, what cost me alot was building the place to put it. I have a build thread on it over at garagejournal.com under a different username. I built the garage myself, all of it. The lift is a 9k symetrical 2 post I picked up used from a repair shop that was going out of business. You can buy them new from http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/Ve...Lifts_s/37.htm for well under 2 grand. Set up isnt that hard if you take your time and pay attention to detail. There is nothing like having your own lift.
