I'm generally opposed to this look, but not on this one. It's tasteful, not tacky. Well done, the thing is looking great. I just hope that it's getting the same love mechanically!

Side note: Driving on the highway and auto trans went into limp mode and all my dash lights came on. Turned it off and now just the cog and battery light are on. Shifts fine but won't accel fast at all (limp mode). Also, the seat warmer turns off when I give it gas....Any ideas? Low voltage?

Thanks! I'm big on making things look clean and not "ricey/tacky" It is getting allllll the maintenance done it can as well. I've already done a laundry list of the typical repairs haha

Fixed the voltage issue, turned out to be a bad alternator. Doing rear windshield wing and maybe doing the tails all red like in the photo, what do you think?

well you have stock long rectangular clear fogs in front bumper, smoked front corners, clear side markers, and now maybe all red tails. think you need to stick to a theme.

and what's this rear window wing? are you talking about the old ACS roof air spoiler?
either way your car that slammed and those mods seems awfully close to edge on what you said you're big on "not" doing.

This is an odd thread. It's alternating between decent photos and really crappy ones.

Also, re:that last picture, get some Forever Black on those rub strips.

Photo quality is a product of me being lazy and not using my Canon 6D for ALL of the photos and using my phone lol. Already planned on getting some back to black for the stripping.
