2013 Alpine Edition build thread
 
Let see if I can put this together.

I bought a new 2006 WK1 SRT8 right when they first came out. Loved it probably one of the best vehicles I've ever owned. Down side was the interior. Got tired of it traded it for a 335 then an M5 when the 335 sucked, which didn't take long.

anyway on to the WK2 found a 2013 Alpine Edition sitting at a local Ford dealer it was 1 year old almost to the day and had 3800 miles on it. Owner traded for a new Shelby convertible. price was too good to pass up.

at the dealer:

brought her home October 30th 2013:

first mod was the same as my 06, HEMI orange engine covers:

clear bra on the bumper and head lights and front 2 windows tinted. legal Mass tint.

Then it was a very long cold winter.

I'm very lucky a very very good friend of mine owns a body shop we spend many a nights getting drunk and screwing with our cars. So as spring sets in we drink more and mod more.

tinted taillights:

the brake calipers were the result of a bunch of beers and being like why not this turned into a very long night.

color is industrial waste green

Finally last weekend we were able to do mid level springs and control arms from Black Ops. Amazing quality products too bad you'll never see these things.

as she sat with stock wheels after the drop

Finally was able to source some lug nuts and mount my Concavos last night. Again all from Black Ops. Tires are Vreds 305/35s.

really haven't driven it much need to get an alignment but it drives straight and the streering wheel is straight. No ABS lights or anything which is suprising considering how much of a PITA the front springs were.

Next up is blacking out the window trim, probably Friday night over some beers.

Love it! The green calipers are a great touch and the drop looks great. I think I'm going to look into the mid level drop with Black Ops control arms and end links this summer. Congrats!
