Thanks for the recommendation. I am going to paint my calipers, I just don't know what color yet.

As your car sits now, I like it. The top wing is different. I like the 6 spokes better than your other wheels. If you want to incorporate green into them, paint the indents in the spokes green to match the rest of your green/black theme.

As for my opinions on your mods:
NO for colorchange paint on anything. It just looks tacky and out of place compared to the other 5 shades of green you have going on. Save up and professionally get the door/seat inserts changed to green. NO on the green/black 16" wheels (see above comment about your 6 spokes). Ditch the bandaid stickers.

thanks for your opinions. I seriously mean that.
the bandaids are just temporary as i have some paint imperfections (clear coat pulled/separated from the paint)
i have wanted to do the very thing you recommended for the 6spokes.
i do want to get my interior trim redone and my seats to match. i kinda like the colorshift on the interior, but yeah, i know its not the best. it does look out of touch with the rest of the car.
seats and door panels will get redone one of these days. my svt is my dd and i work too much to be without a car for any amount of time.


as far as the 16s go, they will prolly get posted for sale soon.
the 18s, i love. i want to get them painted as well, prolly more to go with the black/green theme.


and thanks for not just trolling. i have been a fan of your car and mods and plan on doing the diffuser reverse light mod. prolly going to use Grand Am fog/blinker lights and run the blinker as a brake light. still working on that one.. it will be a while.

and i love my svt spoiler. esp with my "custom diffusers" lol... not everything from autozone/pep boys is ricey. it is all about being careful with your choices.

another mod in the planning phase. it will take a while... so i will keep y'all in suspense. haha
lets just say, something is going to be added to the front.. it will be functional, and mild.

Hmm.. If I type "functional mild car front" into google, I get the front of a Subaru forester... What does that mean? Certainly not AWD...

well, once i get more out of the planning stages, i will fill y'all in.
i know i will get plenty of hate for it, but i want to do it, and i think it would look BMFA
and be functional too.

don't worry, my car won't turn into this...

VC will get repainted Lime green.
SRI will be painted Lime green as well..
