New Look for the Rear

Decided that the rear looked too raw, so I had the exhaust powder coated to be more discreet , blend in and prevent future rust. Also changed out the diffuser and added side skirts to match the aggressive stance.

That looks great! How will the powdercoat hold up to the heat?

We had painted the subframe black on our ArtCar2 - which help reduce the rawness.

I had the header powder coated some time back with heat resistant paint and its held up fine so the exhaust powder coated with a lower temp should be ok. Also, no rust.

Love the look of the powder coat! I see you have Florida plates but did you live or purchase your car from the Seattle area? Your profile pic looks familiar!

Here's a shot of my Evora before pickup, hence why I ask.

Love the PC look. If I was to go naked rear, I would probably have to do this as well. Just gives it a more refine/sleeper look if you know what I mean. Keep us posted on how the PC holds up on the exhaust. Thanks for sharing.
