Nice touch! Y'know, I'm getting kind of sick of that craplastic look, too... How'd you do it? I see in one of the shots that your side skirt is missing. Any advice?

Cool! I've been thinking about it every time i look at my car. I sure wish would have done it on the higher trim levels at least.

Two new wheel concepts. I pretty much know what's going to final, what are your opinions...

Red?


Grey (would actually be body color)?


Red would final with gunmetal powdercoat, grey would final with gloss black powdercoat.

Will also post these in my build thread.

X2, for your car color that would be Ideal, for my Race Red, then the Red and Black would work.
