Got my rims and calipers a nice matte black, side windows tinted and a front windowshield tint that blocks out those nasty florida sun rays. The service tech also had some fun with it and got the gas cap for me, put little black circles around the brake lights, blacked out the turning signals(still need to get some stealth bubls) and covered part of the front in a black vinyl which I think looks great. tell me what you think

Not hot about the access panels but nice work.
How much did the wheels cost?
Should think bout gettin the diffuser painted black too.

Agree with others on the access panels (points for uniqueness though), side markers and the diffuser. Additionally, an IMMENSE :up: on the calipers. I've been wanting to do flat black with the machined face, a la Porsche 930, for some time now. Well done you!

Time for black stripes (or at least the photoshop versions)? That'd tie-in the rest of the stuff, including the panels too maybe, rather nicely.

I think it needs my black and aluminum wheel badges.

I really thought I wanted them, but I may just stick with the stock ones on the wheels. I am however interested in the front emblem changed and the steering wheel sticker

I've fooled around with doing a front emblem insert for custom colors and stuff. It doesn't work well with the brushed finish because of the convex surface. I usually just recommend for people that inquire with me to order it from Blackwatch. Their piece is very nice.

nice subtle changes, but i like it. great start.

what else do you have planned for it?
I have a ton of things Id like to do, but my wallet is iffy on the subject. Id like a CF front lip and gut wing and those CF race view side mirrors. Other than that Id say Im about done. maybe some headers
