Looks pretty good, but two things jumped out at me.

What's up with the fit on those mud flaps? They look like they are going to fall off.

Also, you planning on painting the trunk lid and spoiler to match or are you gonna rock the multi color paint? Laughing

@topgun..that's how the gmpp comes, ht I'm gonna weld a bracket and add another hanger invthe middle to help a bit.

@iffy yeah, I just got them on, I'm going to go back and use some 3m tape on the seem to help. There's three screws in each one so they're not going anywhere lol. The pass side really isn't bad, but for some reason the drivers side sucks..can only tell from certain angles tho..will be fixed soon.

Also the trunk is staying black..was gonna do the hood and roof but after plasti-dipping it it was too much. The trunk was actually repainted. Was in s**t condition and the spoiler was cracked, was gonna do silver but wanted to rock something different..was unsure at first but it grew on me. Debating doing silver above the tails but keeping the top and spoiler black..gotta shop it and see what I like

Quad tailligts. If you zoom in on the one pic showing the exhaust, theres a little black rectangular box above the left corner of the plate. Its got 3 super bright leds angled at 45*, 90*, and 135*. Lol its hidden a bit, i didnt want those big lights next to the plate everyone uses. Imo, this is cleaner

always wondered what your car looked liked, i like the trunk lid it would look good if you did the roof and followed the lines on the hood all filled with black. looking good though think of another gauge to use yet? I still cant see your reverse lights good job haha

That's the paint scheeme I was gonna do, but after spraying the hood, I don't like it. Its too much, I'm playing around with some ideas, ill be doing the rear leather seat to finish up the interior, and ss bumper, and anyone curious, I don't plan on painting my trim..if anything it'll go same black as the trunk and rims..

As far as gauges..the last hole is reserved for a boost gauge. I have part of a build in my garage but it'll be a few more months before anything happens with it

The car is def a 10 footed, looks great cleaned up, but it is from 2000 and has been in 2 accidents..that said it is in great condition given what its been through lol

I will be repainting it same Color, but prob be the last thing I do to it

Honestly, I didn't at first. I was going to spray it silver and do the moldings, but my paint guy had this paint that matched my rims and offered to do it for free (paid him to fix the spoiler) so i said sure its worth a shot. Didn't like it at first, but its grown on me lol

it might look better with the spoiler and the part between it and the lights black, but leave the top of the trunk silver. def do the moldings though.

edit:nvm about the first part... maybe on my car with the tinted lights

Don't wanna dobthe moldings..well maybe but not anytime soon, if you use mothers back to black or something to bring back the good condition, I think it looks good. It sort of breaks up the car
