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...

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...

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!

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...
