Looks killer.

Did you not want them to do the mirrors too?

Thanks man. Decided to hold off on the mirrors. The textured plastic more goes with the belt moldings and the cowl panel so I want to hold off for now to see how I like it like this. May potentially always do them in the future but not for now.

Sweet deal! Not really a red + black fan, but that does look sharp!



Oh, I feel like this thread is missing a picture with smoke. Just saying :)

Thanks man. I've been through a few sets. The only real street wheel set I had was 18x9 chrome saleens. Than I used to run Pro stars and about 6 or so months ago I swapped to the black RTS's.

Looks great! The only thing I would consider changing is the hood stripe. It might flow better if the stripe went with the cowl lines and got wider the farther back it goes. I love the black roof!

Thanks everyone. I couldnt be happier with how it came out.

Thanks man. I'm going to take a break for a bit, but the first thing I was considering doing was just bringing the black down to the first step on the cowl. Other than that I think I'm about done with the exterior of the car.

Came out great!

Check your driver side marker light it looks like it could be loose or needs to be tightened. One of mine used to loosen up and get a little crooked.

thanks for the heads up Bob. I'll be sure to align that a little better, I haven't really gotten a chance to go over everything, I also want to cut out that rubber shield that is somewhat blocking the intercooler on the passenger side area of the front bumper opening

I always wondered how that area would look if it was opened up more like a 03/04 for more flow to the IC.

Its funny you say that, I mentioned that to the body shop manager and we took a look at it, but decided to hold off because of how the curved edges would end up looking if just cutting it open more. I'm sure it can be done but would just take some time and work to open it up a bit.

I have seen the fog light bezels put into the GT bumper but there is a plastic cup that frames the opening. You would probably need to do a lot of fiberglass work to frame out a bigger opening and keep it stable. Would probably look killer with a FMIC sticking out though.
