I want what Ryan is talking about, windshield banner in a reflective silver/grey.

I'm pumped for the meet.

Jake, we still planning on doing that suspension on Wednesday? Thursday would work too, i'd really like to get it on.

I have my brights unplugged anyway because I have DRLs. The main lights are projectors.

I made up the design for the stickers/banners. I italicized "performance" moved things in a little closer and gave it a little more aggressive appearance. Let me know what you guys think.

It may be a little hard to get it to fit in the windshield for the banner...

Last one doesn't have chrome grills, atleast I can't tell from the one pic.

For your banner, actually put a background to it like brad's

I totally forgot to talk to you about that, I think my dad is using the garage to finish rewiring the bug so it can be driven at night, I'll ask him, we might need a new place to do it. Sorry. What does Saturday look like for you??

I don't really like the logo to the left and the wording is kinda plain. Just my 2cents, which I know Jacob will say **** and ignore it like usual.

I made a realization today

It takes me longer to get from the parking lot to the office (to check in) than it takes me to get within 1 block of school.

Driving through the backstreets of mission hills

I've seen it done in charceol grey before on black and it looked sick. Kinda like a monochrom theme.

Ya... lucky them getting to sleep in

I am beginning to regret not going E36 M3 over a E46 330....

Monochome would be cool. I would want a spoiler though.
