Talking Gotta love big mods!!!!!!!!!

I am getting some nice mods done on my car.

1. Getting a new paint job done (Interlagos Blue)
2. Installing umnitza Orion V2 AE
3. Installing a CSL Bumper
4. Getting just the center of the rims painted Gunmetal
5. Matching the color of the calipers to the car

This was my car before sending it to the shop:

I will post the final product when it's finished. The wheel look nice but I want the centers a little darker so I am getting them painted gunmetal.

Why didn't you remove the mesh grill off the bumper so it could stay black?

the "mechanic" is actually the teacher and the painter in the nuc suit is the student..... It's being done at a tech school.

Be ready for a big disappointment, not saying its gonna be bad just be ready.

Unless you do it yourself I wouldnt recommend letting students paint your car.
