    car is clean, lip is painted, and it's really nice outside!

    sanded and polished the clearcoat on the lip today, and spent about 5 hours cleaning the car yesterday (still not done :( )













    lips look so much better in body color. too bad the paint on my valance is screwed.

      God damn that thing looks awesome.

      The wheels really do look sick, I love the colors you did them in

        Definitely worth the time and effort! Awesome pictures, Chris!

        I can only think of one suggestion: smoked turns and parking lights.

          Maybe the euro trim actually.... Delete those pesky sidemarkers.

            Gotta love how the wider track puts the wheels right at the fenders. Beautiful.

              I was noticing that myself.

                yeah.. there's about a finger width in the back. even with two people in the car, it only licks the fenders during hard cornering, and I haven't rolled them all the way yet. the rubbing on my ET20 16x7.5" wheels was way worse and more annoying!

                the fronts kiss the fender liners in the front at full lock, but that's only because I'm running M3 offset bushings which push the wheels forward. it's no biggie anyway, the only time I turn full lock is when I'm going less than 5mph :P

                  Looks real clean.
                  I wish my paint looked like that. My car sat for almost 2 years in the Georgia hot ass weather before I found it and bought it.

                      your car looks awesome :up: the only thing i might change would be to paint the lower part of the rear valance body color, but the car really looks flawless the way it is

                        Man, that looks good. It kind of irks me that the front wheels stick out more than the rear though, it looks goofy. Too bad you can't run spacers in the rear.

                        Just throw some tire gloss on those tires :)

                          yeah, but it helps with understeer and it's barely noticeable.. besides it's only like 2mm per side :P

                          there's no way in hell spacers would fit in the rear, I'm pushing the limits on ix wheels as it is! haha :)

                            Thanks for the new desktop, Nando.

                            Here's a screenshot, after a little photoshopping of the image.
