A long time between updates, but whatever, my car hasn't changed a ton, but added some nifty things. All my shots before FITF and I'll post more as they are posted by others.

I added a CF hood, Made a custom basket, based kinda off Mr. Blue's design, as it seemed clean and proper, red mirror caps, red wheels (again) I had these painted red with a black strip, but the paint sucked, the clear sucked and was not happy with the results. We spent a lot of time stripping the wheels and sanding them smooth and then my buddy sprayed them correctly with Infra red paint and clear (with hardener) thursday morining as I left for work. A lot of hard work in a short amount of time to clean up the car.



















Let me know what ya think.

Thanks!

That basket is excatly what I've been wanting to do for some time. I would stain and clear the wood planks for a richer look.

Keep up the good work.

The wood is cleared with a outdoor poly. I need to sand it off and redo it I think, was rushed with time but going to let it go for a bit. Might paint the wood with a clear coat with Black tint, It looks sweet.

Looks really good. All these Kona racks I've been seeing lately are making me jealous. Can you go a little lower in the front though? Reverse rake makes me eyes twitch uncontrollably.

It was only reverse rake due to the amount of stuff in the car for the trip. The driveway pics are empty...

It doesn't clear it, I had to cut a bit away, and i'm not sure, I got the hitch used.

It tows the BBQ trailer behind it in a few of the pics.

That one is empty. But we did put a full half barrell on the rack, with the empty one and the cooler. The limit is 75 kg. I was probably over the limit but not by much. Need to weigh the basket and go from there.

I love the way your car looks, its definitely different and great job on the basket too [thumb]
