The updated pictures look better! At first I wasn't feeling the grilles but I kind of like them.

Well, certainly a group of opiniated members... LOL Appreciate the feedback although I might not agree with all of the criticism, some of the comments have given me ideas for future upgrades... She's staying the way she is for the moment as I like the look. I was thinking of a partial paint for the hood.... and a few other things based on some of the comments...

I'm using 6K HID fogs. It cost me $100 for the set as I have a lighting guy that I've done some wrapping for, who now gives me special rates.... Looks nice, but I still have to aim them ...

won;t let edit previous post for some reason. I changed the headlight HID bulbs to 6K's several months ago, the highbeams are ultra-whites (look like HIDs), the angel eyes are also 6K,so everything is matched now to 6K. Nice consistant colour in the front now... Beautiful bright white light across front; no yellow (halogen) fogs to destroy look.

Thanks Fab;

My car is done now! These are all mods Josee and I had planned and purchased/ordered/etc before she got real sick. I had promised to get them on (as many as possibel) before she passed away. I'm just completing what we started. Installed the Magnaflow exhaust late one night last weekend..... Anyone need a 330 exhaust complete (Cat back).... LOL

Your stuff is on the bench and I'm losing my mind!!! LOL

Big pieces require innovative solutions...... I'm innovating! I'll send some pictures along once the parts have been trimmed and have a couple of coats of resin.....

Lets see; the parts are:

All 4 door panels.
Complete interior trim wrap
Rear deck
Centre console
and a couple of other goodies.....

Did I miss anything? LOL

Clearing backlog and wrapping new stuff......
