Rate my progress C&C welcome.

Something like that might just experiment with plasti dip to see how it looks and if it flows well ill wrap it. I just know for a fact ill have to go lower to pull off that look.

Thank you for the compliments. Considering the price I got the wheels I'm open to offers but I need to see what else I can snag up if I sell these.

Some small updates and pictures taken throughout the summer.

Thought this was cool. Little before and after considering that's exactly how I got my car when purchased.

Blew a tire on the highway and wasn't carrying any spare. Should've known better. Atleast the wheels were intact.

Finally found a decent deal on an airbag and put on my sport steering wheel which had been sitting In my trunk for 3 years. Also changed all my emblems to the all black ones. Click image for larger version

Sitting pretty.

Still more to come. Need to wrap my headliner and pillars in black. Would like to get my hands on my coilovers and finally do the rear mtechii swap with a nice exhaust.

Pretty hard to make a gloss paint job into a matte paint job, but I tried... Didn't edit the background to match with the car's lighting



Loving your car btw.

What wheels are those? The look like maybe Apex EC-7s?

I love what you've done so far!
