I'm tempted to make fun of you for being so young, but we were all 14 year old tinkerers once.i am 14. turning 15 this monday. that is when my mom will give it to me. i am actually doing this as like an ironic joke. taking a totally crappy car and putting stripes, neon, and new tint on it. but dont worry. i've only put 100$ into it and thats all i plan on putting into it. unless it needs a new part. and yes i can do all this my self. im a do it yourselfer. i built a 1500$ gaming pc lol. just wanted some feedback as to what you guys thought. i have already ordered all the stuff to do it with.
+1 on spending money on mechanical stuff over cosmetic until you're sure you have it under control. Most people have the unlucky happening of getting their car to look almost just right and then the engine quits or the transmission dies. Always make sure it runs right before you go throwing money at looks.http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4051/4304602245_2cdcbdb9ba.jpg
That may be somewhat what it looks like. [Lol is that his spare tire on the front?]
TBH it's not that good looking. I would save your money right now for upgrading engine parts, or fixing any problems that may have occurred over the years. Even just getting gas right now is more important.
But it's your car, your image, make it how you want it.
