some will like and some wont.... I received my purple racing extended wheel nuts through last week so i decided to remove my grills and give them a little twist. In the pics the colour looks a little pink but in the flesh it is actually purple. Tomorrow the car will be getting a wash and polish ready for the london meet on Sunday.













Im trying to break up the black a little and tie it in with under the hood as all the plastics are purple.

Thanks for looking.

Front lip looks awesome!

Is it a prepreg layup from a mold?

Prepreg is pre resin impregnated carbon fiber. Most commonly used for this kind of product since an infusion would be overkill. Wasn't sure if you were involved in the composite fab of the build, was just curious.

I like the black interior trim , all of the up grades that I've made I keep the original parts so if and when the car becomes collectable I could switch back, so I am trying to get a used set and get them painted piano black , any way nice car .
