updated the first post with some new information, some updated future plans for my car, and a few new pictures of a couple small new mods.

cheers everyone!

Hrm, in my mods plan for '08 for my ride I'm getting F2 side skirts added. I was also thinking of getting the caps on my mirrors painted body colour (Sangria Red) but getting the door handles done body colour appeals to me too.

I see you bought a new set of door handles, but do you know if a body shop can paint them while they're on the car?

Hi,

I don't doubt that a bodyshop could do it, but the problem is that the primed handles are smooth, ready for paint whereas the stock handles are textured plastic, and would really need to be sanded first, and to sand them on the car, and then mask everything off and paint the handles i'm guessing they'd need the car for a couple of days, and probably charge a lot more than $100.

cheers,

-- michael

Hi, thanks for the comments.

I bought the ST gauge bezel (it was about $25) and swapped the 2004 indicator light piece onto it.

cheers,
