Thank you guys.
The dash is for Lada VAZ-2106
Fits right in , without any modifications.
Harness bar is universal . I just had to shorten the vertical posts couple inches.

Then I cleaned a few things under the hood.

Nice! That header looks good too.
I also noticed shes lowered, especially in the front.

I don't think it was lowered . Everything looks original.
I think the springs are just tired. I ended up cutting one coil of the rear springs to even it out.
The back is still a little higher then the front. But it is not bothering me at all.

Then I picked up a couple of BMW's ellipsoid headlights from the junk yard.
I spent almost a whole day grinding , cutting and sanding them and the headlight buckets to make them fit.
Finally they were in and I am very happy with the results .

Very nice. The chin spoiler really finishes off the front end.

I feel the same way about this spoiler.
