Talking Grip Ronin's street/circuit build

So now ive had some time to revamp this thread i can catch you guys up with whats done. All work is done by me sometimes with the help of a few friends.
Currently the gear has been removed and ive put in upper arm camber bushings.. A SBD v2 turbo is sitting in my living room right now lol

First off, some bass is a must, kenwood 1200w single 12" can handle the job.
