Sonic's changes that debuted at FOTB:

I decided to do some small changes to the car before I took the drive to FOTB.

First, my wife got me the Redline Tuning SVT floormats and hatch covor for my birthday in June:



Then I helped out Sean at iZoom graphics for a few days in exchange for some small graphic work on my car.

First up: He re-did the Jetfest decal in silver to match the other one:


Next up: He made a vinyl decal out of a Sonic picture I gave him:


And finally, I wanted some graphics on the car and thought some GT500 style stripes might not look too bad.

My car in Flagstaff Arizona on the way to FOTB

....but I had to throw in my own touch. Yes, that's Sonic's head on there.



Finally, Sonic at FOTB..... 2nd in SVT class:






Finally, Sonic posing for the camera by part of the Grand Canyon. Dirty as hell from the drive from SoCal:








And some others that people took of Sonic at FOTB:

This guy won SVT:



I have no idea who he is or if he is on here.

The judging was done by BUR_ZX3 (Todd) on fj and some of his guys, so it wasn't a popular vote show.

I like the gt 500 look you should finish it off with the strips across the top

I thought about that, but I am more of a "subtle" guy. I almost didn't convince myself into these stripes and have been close many in the last week to removing them. The stripes are a darker silver (peuter actually) than the wheels and I wish they matched the wheels, BUT if they matched the wheels the stripes would be WAY too bright for the paint. Double edged sword there....

The racing stripes across the top would be way TOO much for me.
