Showstopper,

You have definately raised the bar in how-to mod ones C5.

You should bring the BIG-CHIN hoods to market as well.

I like how your katech valve covers came out, can't wait to see them on the car with the painted water pump. Are you going to go with katech's coil relocation kit as well? Perhaps some yellow plug wires?

Where does that QR code next to your strut casing lead to?

Back in Post 236, you have a pic that shows the interior. I noticed the ring on the steering wheel air bag is painted yellow. Awesome!

Mind sharing how you got it off to paint?

It goes straight to our website. You have to see how many people scan it at local shows.

I actually didn't take off the ring. To risky with the airbag being there. I just took the airbag off the steering wheel and masked the ring. Painted it black and just put a yellow pinstripe.
