Unfortunately I choose to go the most functional route, which is why I got square setup. I hope it will! haha as for the camber, not sure, I know it will look good, but if I do, it will only be a small amount, I dont like the slammed/poked look that some people have.

I'd also suggest more black up front to flow with the grill. Try some smoked corners.

Other than that, the only problem I see is the bit of plasti-dip falling off of the badge in the back. That bothers me.

Great car Ned!
Either that, or OEM corner lights with a black frame and background. It looks like you have the black inserts for the headlights, so that makes the all clear corners stick out more.
Another option for the grills would be the body color grills. The slats are still black, but he frame would be white. That is what I did, and it looks good on a white car. If you are going to have a body shop paint them, you may want to consider taking your mirors apart, and having the black parts painted white. I had that done as well, and it looks really good. The black parts of the side view mirrors always bothered me, and they don't age well. Just some things to consider. Honestly, the car looks great just as it is. Good work.

Thanks for the suggestions! And phoenix, I dont think theres anything I can do about it.

And forgot to update in this thread: Installed the Usa Spec Pa12 ipod intergration, I love it! The wires are routed from to trunk up front underneath the interior, and out through the gap underneath the steering wheel. This means not one wire is exposed, and the installation is very clead and OEM looking. Then I got a vent ipod holder and it's all done!



What it looks like when Im done using it, nobody can see it underneath the wheel


The connection
