Re: (Copeland)

JRL's computer is from the 70's. That is why he can't open those pics. I really like the look of the sport kit on your car. You have done a fine job my friend. Rick

JRL...doesn't redirect you when you click on them? If it does, you could have the pictures size down in the properties menu of Internet Explorer. <p>Open Explorer...click on tools/ properties/advance tap...scroll down to mulitmedia...click on enable resize to uncheck the box.<p>Don't know why else you can't see them they're pretty big to me

JRL, you could also have the Popups Blocker set too high if you don't get redirected

Light colored cars look awesome with painted moldings. I agree with everyone about the rear wing.

Re: 04 flash green R gets sport kit and painted moldings (mike_c70)

As a flash green owner I dont like it, but then again I dont like the sport kit at all. The painted molding looks good though.<p>And everyone is correct about the wing.

I never liked the Flash green <U>untill</U> I saw your car. I think it IS the only way to have that loud color! Way to represent FLASH!

Actually it isn't loud, it's pastel

Probably the best I have ever seen the sport kit IMHO. Don't really like the wing on it though. Still a very nice look, especially with the moldings painted. Could never understand why any manufacturer would break up a color with thos stupid black plastic/rubber mouldings.

Re: (Cementups)

Well, I really wondered what people here would think about the wing as 99.99% of people on the street would not have a clue that the wing is out of place. <p>BTW, I did tell them that the wing should be mounted in back.<p>Twice.<p>However JRL, I TOTALLY AGREE, normally I would not accept such sheit.<br>But...<br>I was as usual trying to squeeze 50 lbs of dung in a 30 lb bag. The first body shop where the car sat for 3 weeks screwed me, (I made the mistake of telling them, "take your time, do it right, I got three weeks before I need it back." ..yeah, my bad, tried to be nice.) I ended up having<br>had one week to get it done before shipping it, as it was I fortunately had<br>another contact who got this shop lined up to do it complete literally a day<br>before the car was to ship out. (Not much I can do now)<br>The trunk must be replaced to fix this now as they drilled into it.<br>In essence, this has now become an over $1000 fix in Germany ..at least!! as I have no 'buddy's to call on and everthing's big $$ here. <br>..and I just don't think it's that bad looking as is, ... except to R owners.<p><BR><BR>
