Thanks! Yeah, it was very easy and straight forward. I used a 3" abrasive cutoff wheel on a rotary air tool, then a 1" barrel sander for the edges. It's just fairly time consuming to do a clean job. Overall I'm super happy with them, they look amazing, and really clean from the outside. Now I can't wait to see how they perform! Now I have to deal with all my douchebag friends telling me I'm a ricer...

How well do these take a curve? Some mostly rectangular 4x8 ones would be right at home on the fenders.

Fender louvers are in the works, but won't be talking much about them until they are pretty well hammered out

Nice. I saw the sticker in there but didn't relize it was pink. Sweet! That might go on before the hood vents.

It was nice meeting you at laguna by the way. Your car is mean. Did you make it back trouble free? I know you had some tranny problems.

I'm still deciding where to put mine. I want it to be easily visible but not on paint. I'm thinking front splitter.

I realize a pink decal probably clashes with most cars, but it was too fitting an opportunity to pass up.

Great to meat you as well David!
Yep, no second gear and a cracked exhaust manifold, 430 miles back to San Diego trouble free today
If tracking a turbo car was easy I guess everyone would do it? Hah.

I got mine yesterday! Now, I just have to find time to install them in the midst of a total "car transplant" - just one more thing in a long, long list.

No installed pics yet, but here's a couple shots of them roughly laid out on an NA hood...




Today I did the bending, which was very easy. Tomorrow I'm going to try to drop them off for powder coating, so they may get installed the following weekend, depending on how quickly I can get them back...

I think 99% of hood vents look terrible but I haven't had that unconscious opinion form yet in regards to these. Well done Mr. Pass!

I'm getting very excited to burn some money once they hit Goodwin's site.

Now, do I powdercoat them matte black or* gloss black.

I'm getting very excited to burn additional money on these once they hit Goodwin's site.

The thing that is hard for me to make a choice on is a matte black on gloss black powdercoat finish.
So far, I've really liked the matte black on the customer car's I've seen...however, I think paint matched(depending on the color) could look really good.

No. Unless it was bone stock when he sold it, and it migrated to AZ...

I was able to snag blackbandit's set from him since he sold his NB. I'm still undecided on having them painted satin black or lava orange to match. I will hopefully get them installed next week if my body guy has time. I did find a good place for the sticker though.
