Those shots look amazing...especially love the dusk one, love the angle with the glow of it all.

My BSK windshield surround FINALLY came in - I had my bodyshop paint the inner edge black and VERY lightly tint the remainder so that the weave direction change wouldn't be so obvious.

These are just test fit pictures - "urethaning" sometime this week... enjoy!

Oh I save 0.97 lbs. too (this surround is 0.76 lbs.) lol :)

Looks good Dark,

Loving how it is coming out. Have you gotten the car out much for any new photos?

No - been finalizing all sorts of little things. I’ll have a lot more time to spend of her in about a month or so - just in time for Spring. Also added smoked LED fog lights in the front for added illumination “oomph” down the road when it’s dark. Pics for those soon.

I thought about doing an OEM look for fogs, but honestly haven't found anything I like. So really looking forward to what you found.

Fog lights? They are not designed to get light far down the road.

I installed PIAA LED driving lights for that and for fast headlight flashing. Yes, I'm sometimes impatient....

Foglights are in and connected in parallel to the headlights. I didn't want to have to wire yet another switch/relay/wiring... :)

Total added weight was 1.398 lbs.

It was a necessity because the center CF grill already had the fog light cutouts and I could not find a version that didn't have them.

I CAN see a lot better at night now lol.

And YES I was pressure bleeding my brakes at the same time the front wheels were off. No point doing a job twice :)

Windshield surround is taped up waiting for the temperature to be warmer for the urethane. It's in the 30's right now. Brrr!

Sounds like you love them. How have they worked out for you? Do the rotors have a wear indicator or you have to weigh them to verify if they need replacing?
WAY too early to tell. I have literally driven 1800 miles in the past three years since they were installed. Still brand new.
