either way nice car and nice touch with the techno, is it a more noticeable purple in person?
looks very dark purple in real life, when sunlight hits it, it pops like crazy though. i need a bumper respray though too. lots of rock chips have gathered over the last 9 years.

Looks great Rich. Sorry if I missed it somewhere in your build thread, but what are the specs on the Works? What's your ride height set at in those recent pics?

Just a quick tip... Try not to turn the picture of your car into a self portrait


Editing wise, I like to play around with the exposure and shadow/highlight settings in photoshop. It can really make the image pop

I would say photo shop on the juice lol... I only play with it as I'm not a photo editor but it makes cleaning up pics pretty dang easy, you can google it and use a 30 day trial for free to get a gist of how it works. I wish I had more time to use it but I don't.

Car is looking good Rich. I like the wheels. I think the purple complements the Black well. I do think the 1 piece csl lips looked better though. But good job overall.

+2. My go-to editing program. Virtually every image I've taken and uploaded to the internet has, more or less, been through Lightroom.

Lovely car, Rich. Agreed with those who say the purple looks great. Contrasts rather nicely.

Car looks amazing! I love your wheels.

and +whatever for Lightroom, photoshop is more for advanced photo touch ups more than basic editing. You'll learn lightroom way faster, then you can transition those edited photos into PS and do some crazy **** with them once you learn it.
