i just realized i havent updated this in a few months.
so i got the old V2 accessport taken apart, got the new screen put in, reassembled and it worked flawlessly. i'll get pics before long. i'll try to remember to do so tomorrow.
my wife and I are currently in the process of selling our house, and while most of the proceeds will be going towards a downpayment for the new house, my wife told me to take 1500 to buy the rear oem flares (mine are cracked), a new oem replica front lip (old one is long gone lol) and wrap the car. so hopefully this will be done in the next couple of months and the car will look good again. pictures dont show it but the whole back half of the car has the clear coat failing/flaking. so i'll have to sand it down and put some rattle can primer and then sand that smooth. i wont be fixing every little dent and such, there really isnt many dents, but that's more money for a body shop and since i do plan on doing some light tracking with it and only wrapping, i figure it's not necessary/worth the money.
hopefully the wrap goes well and I can update this thread before too awful long with the process of that.
also worth noting that although i mentioned aero before, that plan was scrapped as the class i want to race in will not allow it. glad i didnt buy it earlier and get bumped into yet a higher class. lol.
