Just an odd question, but are you thinking of blacking out the roof as well.

Sick car. Love under the hood. Wow.

The only way to do it is with a vinyl, and not to thrilled with that... So I am going to paint the roof black to complete it... I think it will suffice...

Here are the photo's that I took for Roto-Fab...

So today was a productive day. I went to a local paint shop and got a quote for the paint job, although a little more than I was hoping for still a decent price. Gonna run me 2500 for the paint job. Went to the dealership to get replacement wiper blades of course they didnt have any there so I will have to go back tomorrow. Then my curiosity kicked in...

I have been wanting to get my twin turbo system for a while now just havent had the money for it. About 2 weeks ago I set a date for myself, will have twin turbo in by Oct. Well that is becoming more of a reality after today...

Over the past week I have been talking to MTI Racing personnel in Marietta GA, and they gave me a quote for the system, install cost, and the tune... Was about what I expecting price wise, so I used that as a base line to go off of... Went to my bank and asked if it would be possible to get a loan for said amount and it was approved right away... So once I get my speakers done and paint job done, twin turbo is next. But I also need to get my headers too, still trying to figure out how to do this... by the time all is done I will have spent close to 20k this summer alone... once all is said and done it will be time to start paying off some of this debt... Good thing I got promoted and my pay kicks in next month...

As for this weekend I plan on getting my footwell lights wired up and my Trunk Lid panel mounted and wired up. Pics will follow when that work is done...

Thanks for taking the time to get the engine bay pics-they look great!:happyanim:

pyr0b0y 06-03-2011 12:43 PM

nice build. I have a CF hood as well and am still waiting on the Seibon ST trunk. I was debating on what to do with the engine bay, but really like the engine covers and CF accents! :coolpics:

Overflow 06-03-2011 06:39 PM

Nice!

zslewis 06-03-2011 10:16 PM

Just caught your tag...............Priceless :respekt:

The AAC lights really look good!

zslewis 06-05-2011 01:47 PM

:)

That is one of my buddies tags that he used to have on one of his Talon's. But he kept the plate for obvious reasons... Its just hilarious...

zslewis 06-06-2011 08:00 PM

T3 front bumper and splitter shipped from Phastek today... Which means I should get it before I go to throw my car to be painted... Already have the SLP delete for the mail box slot, talked to a body shop and they said that they will make it look like its all one piece so it wont have the cracks from where the SLP delete is...
