Lotsa work on that one!

But I'm afraid whenever I see a car or truck that's been "slammed", it's a complete turnoff for me; all proportionality is thrown out the window! Looks like the whole suspension failed. Never will understand the appeal...

Nicely done and with the bags it can be set at whatever ride height the owner wants. The visor is distracting but it's not my car so I will stfu

I think it's very nicely done. Except for the copper brake? clutch? lines in the driver footwell all around the pedals. Given the rest of the car, seems that could have been more neatly done. Maybe it's temporary?

Those are probably Ni-Copp lines which is the best material you can get for brake lines. Very likely hand bent because it is so easily formed that way. Considering the rest of the car I'd think copper would be unlikely. They could have been done with more precision using a bender but that's just a question of exactly how anal about the details the builder can afford to be.
