Maybe later in the summer after I have been back to work for a while....



Nah, definitely Sonic Blue. Although tied for second are Midnight Blue and the Kona tan color.
IM not sure of the exact colors, but I love the yellow and orange as well. Plus there is a really light blue color I see on some foci that is so sick. I guess the black white and greens are average. lol

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of that style bumper. It's hard to explain but it looks to much like a cheap bumper Honda owners put on there cars and then watch the paint flake off. Maybe I was damaged as a child but it's not my cup of tea. lol

But it's just my opinion and the bumper looks like it's in very good shape and it is SAP so go for it if you like it.

Yeah I agree with you on the shape. Haha, if you didn't catch it, the paint is flaking off of my stock bumper. Since the flaking is localized to the front diffuser, I think I might jus plasidip that part black like Avie.

Yeah, I'm probably going to do that. It won't be quite add obvious as it is on lighter colored cars, but it should look good.

Well I am finally home and there she sits. [IMG][/IMG]

I noticed a funky smell after taking it for a drive. I found a nice surprise under the hood after a little digging. [IMG][/IMG]

I gave it a nice bath today. I should be out picking up some paint, plastidip, suede for the new shift and ebrake boots, as well as getting a shipment in from parts express with a secret impulse buy in it. Mods should becoming pretty quickly. Stay tuned. Ohh and big thanks to zx3_bmxrider, my seat belts are now retracting properly! You have no idea how much that was bothering me.
