Parts that I have but not installed yet:
Di-noc CF wrapped radio bezel, real CF guage cluster surround(for these I am waiting till I get my interior conversion to do it all in one shot), SVT mirrors.

Parts that I still need to order:
FSWERKS stealth exhaust, tune(not sure on who to go with yet)Wheels, haven't decided on either Tarmac's or ASA-AR1's, opinions on those please.

Once I get the Reiger lip installed, I am going to re-paint the entire car(same color) it needs it after 10 years.

I love how my car is coming together now! What do you all think?

Most people(including me) hated the fendervents lol. I am glad that the bumper is gone too, I love the lines of the Euro!

We fat Americans got fat bumpers cuz of US crash laws lol. Remember the lines of the car were designed for the euro market and regulations.

Coming along nicely Brian.

Maybe in mid spring I can get mine going.

It's going to look good with the Reiger lip and a different set of headlights on it.
