Better pictures soon to come of my current setup. I didn't want to overload the page with huge
pictures. So I kept them within range so the page still loads at a decent speed.


More content soon to come...

Thank you!

Yellow Calipers w/ Grey High Temp "R" Vinyl - What brand of paint did you use? Have you had any issues with peeling?
I used the G2 Caliper Paint (Linky). No Issues at all with peeling. The paint went on so thick that I doubt it will ever peel.

Mind taking a pic of the a pillars? I've been wanting to do this and cover the dash (leather part) to reduce the eyeball burning glare out here. I'd love to see what they look like.


Edit: proper wheels man, beautiful. And the yellow on the calipers is sexy. Nicely done.

Edit edit: where did you get that little lip? I like it.

Thanks! And sure I'll snap a shot for you when I get back to my car. As for the lip, it's the DIY Home Depot Lip. Very easy to do. DIY LINK

How do you like the Yellow Calipers? I'm assuming you used the G2 Caliper Paint? :)

I want to do mine yellow as well, and who better to ask than someone who's already done them.

Here's a rendering of how mine will look:
