Thanks.

They are gloss black thin quarter gill/vent decals. I got them off ebay and not from a vendor on here. They weren't too expensive and they've worked out awesome. If you want I can PM you the ebay link from where I got them. Just let me know.

Awesome looking car you have, man. It's a white out! Cant' say it enough....gotta love the SW!!

I have been using a mix of products from a number of brands but most recently to save time I've been using Meguiar's Ultimate Quik wax and Ultimate Quik detailer and it's been working out okay for the most part. Haven't done much sealant/polishing work although I need to desperately. Wish I had more time to do those things.

Finally got the tint for the reverse lights and DRL's. They didn't come with my original tint kit that I used on the other lights. Going to get to it next weekend. Nothing major but tinting them will be nice and subtle.

Haha thanks for the compliments, man. They are the IVS Havoc wheels. I just recently started a thread where people can post pics of their Havoc wheels. Check it out if you want:

Haha thanks, man! Yeah I like the Razzi kit quite a bit, also. There are a lot of great options on ground effects for these cars IMO!

Looks good can't wait to see how your engine bay looks when everything is dry and put back in.

Finished....somewhat. I'm going to touch up the small accent lines in the middle of the engine cover because they're not perfect. I'm also considering making the black bowtie on the fuse box cover permanent....because the one in the last pic is temporary.

Along with painting my engine bay parts, I blacked out my lower, rear SW fascia that could be seen through my rear Razzi diffuser.

Engine bay is looking good. I personally am not a fan of the black bowtie on the fuze box cover but it is your car. What I did on mine was outline the little symbols on the cover with black and it makes it look good, that may be something to consider too but car is looking really good!

Thanks for the heads up on the bowtie. I still haven't put it on....permanantly...and I'm still considering not putting it on there...mainly because there is already the bowtie on the engine cover and I'm not sure if I like both of them that close together.

Outlining the symbols does sound like a good idea. I saw the other day where a guy outlined his in red.

What did you use to outline them?
