Thank you, and I bought synergy green paint in a spray paint can (3 of them) from automotivetouchup.com.

So i sanded down the model, primed it, painted it with the green, then clear coated it. All with spray paint cans. No special equipment at all. And i forget the model size, but its about a foot long, its pretty big.

Can't wait to see this in person. I'd been thinking about straight pipes on mine too but I wanna hear em first. The hood pins have really grown on me too! They are functional right?

Thanks man. They were $80 and the cable part can attach anywhere under the hood u want. I just used 2 tiny screws into a tab on the inside of the bumper. and the metal plate part just sticks on the hood.

I was going to get real hoodpins that were $80 as well and drill thru the hood, but i figured since they are just for looks why go thru all of that when they will look the exact same, and the OEM hoodlatch wont fail anyways

I gotcha. I dunno how they'd look on my car. I already had a phantom grille I was watching on eBay too. Haha I'd feel like a copycat if I got it now.

Every mod on here is a copy from someone elses nearly. Thats how u get ideas. When some one asks me about a mod or "copies" it, I feel honored and happy they like it that much.

Sweet. Great outlook! Cause I plan on giving those pins a try haha. You've got a lot of cosmetic stuff that I think is awesome once I'm done with my performance I might get into the cosmetic aspect of mine some more. As of right now for cosmetic all I've gots powder coated wheels and a bunch of vinyl and plasti dip. 350$ total lol. But damn did it do wonders IMO.



You plan on upping the performance of yours or no? Dunno if I would if I had a sick bike. Cause it still wouldn't be as fun as the bike.

Ya man your car is going to be killer with that supercharger. I cant wait to see that and hear it.

And, yes im going to do a lot more performance mods once my warranty is up. I have a injen longtube CAI right now and with the t2 ports I can feel quite a difference but thats still pretty small of a HP increase., but I eventually want to get twin turbos. Just need that warranty to run its course. Thats why ive been so focused on cosmetic mods.

Gotcha. Mines already at 70,000 and I got a deal I couldn't pass up so I went for it. Can't wait to see that with twins though! Tracy at Rx Performance does one hell of a job boosting these things if you aren't decided on where you eventually wanna go. Also how do you like those straight pipes?
