The car looks good man! Only thing I would change is the turn signal lenses, other than that I think it looks "overall" well done.

I also spot the oil cooler behind the pax side bumper vent. I was thinking of doing the same with my Bomex, but now I cant decide between an oil cooler or brake ducting for that location.

Where in CT do you go to take shots? I'm hoping my car will be on the road soon and all of us can meet up for a photoshoot.

cool hood and wheels. I really think the 1st-gen nickel 6UL is the best looking wheel he's done.

Those 15x8 or 15x9? And did you roll the fenders?

They are 15x8 and the fenders are not rolled. I have superpro bushings that are pulling the lower control arms in about 1" so I can get away with it (that wasn't why I bought them though...just an added bonus).

Thanks! I had tsi's and they made the front end look even more busy so I traded them for regular turn signals.

Shoot in the sun, and set a proper white balance.

Not sure which blue, I painted it so long ago...I should probably find the paint code again. Laying around in the garage somewhere.

The normal color shots are more flattering IMO. But many of the details of the car are lost in shadow and darkness in either set. Perhaps some selective lightening would help things.
