Sniperx Oh, and I wanted it to be subtle but noticeable.

Sniperx You can't bend this stuff since it is carbon sheet. Plus, one thing I learned in graphic design was to not compound angles. There is a reason the stripes on the wing and hood of cars from the 1970s and even the new Dodge Challenger have stripes that look similar in design. Now if the black thing on the side was white. That idea of yours would work graphically!

mikebontoft I was going to say bring that stripe down to the black side moulding and angle it to go straight back about two inches above the moulding all the way around the back. then do the same on the other side.

Me too unless it is too subtle, and the SVT wing (IMHO) is border line that so this is why I choose the WRC wing from Kaminari. For my tastes that is the perfect balance between radical and subtle. Shoot, compared to some rear wings it is downright subtle!

Sniperx I like the stock ones OK but do think yours looks better as do the SVT stockers. My plan is to do mine sort of sedate and go witht he Makinari front lip only instead of the whole bumper (till I find a Euro front and rear bumper) and do their rally wing on the back. I LOVE their WRC style wing since it fits my tastes right between radical and more than a stock SVT rear wingLET since in my op, the SVT rear wing leaves a little to be desired since it looks so much like a stock rear winglet.

ViperThreat I think all of us would love to have the euro bumpers lol. They just look better. The only US bumpers I ever really liked were the SVT and the SAP for the 05-07s
