Wassup Tyson. Is it possible for White to look "deep", because your new paint does from what I saw on CR.net. Post pics up here as well per forum rules.

Welcome.

Is that S. FL as in Naples, Ft. Myers, Miami, Ft. L, West Palm, the Keys? Try changing it to something slightly more specific, because you likely have some neighbors on here.

Are those RS Aizawa headlight lids?
Nice black+white combo. I was thinking about painting the A-pillar and the hard top black too.
Looks nice and clean, I like it .

yes, i started with the pass side lid from r speed on a lucky day it was listed under specials, then i searched and searched and finally found one on ebay from uk somewhere.
eibach springs i got for free through some samsung reward program at work.

edit: oh yeah i had a friend paint the car. i like the a pillar black, im thinking if the mirrors should be black or white?
i really want to move them up on the fenders.

edit2: again, i painted the wheels myself, they look good in those pics for some reason they need to be redone, i have some fresh 513s in gunmetal waiting to be put on, i need some fenders first. and i am getting married on april 4th so im gonna wait til after the wedding cause were using my car to drive away in.
