OK So I've never donw one of these progress threads before, but here we go! I've been a member of this forum for a little bit now, but really haven't posted much, mainly due to how busy I am with my job. (Note: The title of this thread is linked with my line of work lol)

So this is my Wicked White 2009 Lancer GT with a CVT. I bought it brand new back in late 2009 & over the past few years, I've slowly been working on it.

Brand New

The first thing I did was change my fog lights to yellow bulbs & slap on an 8,000k HID kit for my low beams, using the jroxx harness to keep it from flickering.

294745_10150795214225487_141966059_n.jpg

My first ride with my current ride.

535734_10151525475565487_1285321602_n.jp

Then I went ahead & installed an LED panel for a trunk light & replaced my done lights with LED's too

561348_10151903508355487_1015715795_n.jp

In 2012 I decided to wrap my fogs in lime yellow tint film & installed 3,000k HIDs

557057_10151903522890487_424865495_n.jpg

The week after that I bought a V-Lip as a Birthday gift for myself. However I've never fully installed it... It's been sitting at the cottage waiting to be painted.

298782_10152041087280487_1193800608_n.jp

The following week I picked up a set of almost new Tein S-Tech springs off of Kijiji, & bought a brand new set of KYB's to mount them on.

After:

Next came a front upper strut bar from Ultra Racing

320392_10152129021715487_510704166_n.jpg

So we were making progress! I did take a little step back however in late 2012. I was driving to pick up lunch & a truck driver didn't check his blind spot. He side swiped me & his wheel studs tore up my back door & part of the fender

550867_10152129022845487_88846904_n.jpg

His insurance covered it & after a few weeks, we were back on the road.

2013 was productive again for the car.

Bought a set of 18"x8" BBS reps from Kijiji for $400. I added the red time attack rings, & bought red lugs & red BBS center caps for it.

943701_10152855883075487_1413662461_n.jp

I found a set of Chinese made mudflaps for it on eBay & threw them on. Not bad for $15. They look OEM

1376422_10153270296440487_1922859232_n.j

Then I went ahead & Plasti-Dipped my front grille & both emblems. I also de-badged the rear.

1383115_10153270374055487_1183934613_n.j

Next came a Takeda Retain short ram intake

1374884_10153270374290487_1641998668_n.j

Then I got bored & installed an LED shift knob, & LED foot-well lights. Currently it's all hooked up to a cigarette lighter switch, but when I have time I plan to hard wire it & put in it's one switch.

From summer mode, back to winter mode

10320547_10154045157765487_7304996863295

Bought myself a vortex generator

10256562_10154045176650487_6464525551383

And got this racing header as a Christmas gift to myself

10294484_10154045177530487_6793977232196

Picking up goods at the airport

10296568_10154045177425487_9165753442751

Which brings us to 2014. We've had a pretty crummy winter in the Greater Toronto Area. It was 4:00am & I had just finished dropping one of my employees home & was on my way home. Tired, I didn't see a chunk of fender ice in the road & I tagged it. This was the result

10153906_10154045188715487_3584755860200

Fixed the guard underneath, & just prayed for warm weather so I could fix the hole. But while waiting, I bought this new center console

And I finally got myself a set of projectors. After doing a ton of research, I decided on the Eagle Eyes

So I got tired of the HID fogs. For some reason the left side bulb would always burn out quicker than the right side. Tried a few different ballasts & harnesses but the same problem. So I've gone with these new LED fog lights

10154177_10154045207875487_5465624101839

I also received a set of Supertone horns, which have yet to be installed

10259921_10154045195595487_2093822088789

So Easter weekend, we actually had acceptable weather, so I got to work on the car. Headlights were installed, the hole in the bumper was fixed, painted the calipers & rotors, & got the summer tires back on.

And that brings me to now... If you're still reading, I thank you for putting up with me. lol,

On my day off I decided to finally mount my side license plate mount, along with some new license plate frames (No more free advertising for the dealership I bought the car from lol), & I Plasti - Dipped the front end, Evo style!

Thanks all! The ride isn't bad, but after the hole in the bumper from this past winter, it has me seriously thinking about coil overs, just so I can raise it back to stock.

make sure to check toronto lancer club in facebook, they have a lot of meets.. nice progress!

Sweet. Will do. I've never really had the time to make it out to meets due to work, but this year I'm certainyl going to try. Thanks for the heads up.

looks great! whatever happened to the Vlip??

Thanks Tony! The V - Lip is currently at the cottage. I took it up there so I could Plasti - Dip it (To be honest, the cottage is where I do a lot of my work on the car during the warmer months). Never got around to painting it because the fishing was just too great last year!

My driveway is at a rather poor angle & not really forgiving, so after lowering the car I was hesitant on intalling the lip. just afraid that I would scratch or even damage it (It's fiberglass). But this year I plan on painting & installing it. I also have a rear diffuser for it & plan to do a custom exhaust for it. I mean I have the header, might as well do the rest, right?

I have a couple of other things I have to put on the car, but I'll post about them after they're installed ;)

So i've done a few more things since my last post. Nothing overly crazy though. Here are a couple random shots. One outside of work one night & the other with my sister's car.

10342786_10154121984030487_3390917410476

Picked up a 22mm Progress rear sway bar from a guy on Kijiji & installed it on it's stiffest setting. Loving the way it feels.

10371506_10154121983965487_5001659004755

This was a silly impulse buy, but I'm loving the way it looks.

10325575_10154192420985487_7942360671545

I finally made it up to the cottage & decided to bring the V-Lip home & at least paint it. Then I installed it, & surprisingly, I can make it in & out of the driveway!

Nice car man, only gripe was buying the BBS center caps when you don't have actual BBS wheels but to each his own.

Other than that I like the car and it is well done.

So your saying he is a poser? LOL jkkjkjkkjkjkjk. It's nice to rep the brand you like. I have a DuaL audio sticker on my car. I have the entire Dual sound system but I would put it on there if I didn't have it anyway.

Haha no worries, no offense taken. The original center cap stickers are Phat Kat Racing & one of them was missing. So we can call these the Poor man's BBS. lol

I've got two decent ones right now, & I'll try to get three more this weekend Jukebox. Haven't really done much as work is taking up a lot of my time. So here are some random shots since my last post.

Next to my co-worker's Genesis

10350351_10154234377575487_7531907345229

In Oakland, Michigan for a wedding

10376190_10154234378135487_7806749659965

Now this is a rather impressive test for my fiberglass V-Lip I bought from Nextmod Richmond Hill. On my way back from the wedding, I was just outside of London, Ontario & there was the carcass of a freshly obliterated deer in the road. There was a car to the right of me & buddy sped up. So I hit the carcass going 130km/h. Needless to say, I heard a bit of a spatter & heard the body hit the underside of the car. I needed to fill up anyway so when I stopped at a service station, I did a quick overview of the car in poor light & to my surprise, the lip was still intact. I got up the next morning to take a better look & I was greeted to this...

10405379_10154234123175487_2393302560227

The rest of the day was spent picking out deer guts & hair from the front & undercarriage of my car. Now the car isn't slammed, but still dropped 2".

Went to the cottage in Orillia on my day off to relax & mow the lawn, but managed to get two decent shots of the car lol.

So I booted it up to the cottage again for the Canada Day "weekend" & decided to finally install the supertone horns. I decided to not use a relay on them, & they're still annoyingly loud :), the neighbours weren't too pleased that I decided to install them up there lol. Might move them up a little more so they can be seen easier.
