Thanks for the compliment. My wife and I are going to try and take some updated pics this weekend before it goes in for paint again on Tuesday.

So while I am working on getting updated pics, I figured I would post some pics of a few mods I've done previously.

The first thing I did was install BMR 1" lowering springs. In fact, before I finalized the order, I was given the lowering springs as a Christmas gift because I had told everyone I was going to order the car. LOL

I took the car to the dealer so they could install the splash guards that I ordered when I bought the car. They installed them for free so it's one of the few things I haven't done myself. Here's a picture of it after I installed the springs with the splash guards.

A guy that works in my office is also into cars and we always help each other install mods and we are constantly talking about what we want to do next. We've worked together for over 23 years and have become great friends.

My birthday came around and my wife, who also works with me, went to him to find out what she should buy for my car. She hits a home run and orders from Apex-Speed.com a CAI, Scoop, and Water Bottle relocation kit. Then, she turns around and places another order for the Stainless Works Retro-Catback exhaust It's so awesome to have someone who supports and feeds my addiction. LOL

Here are some pics:

At some point last year, I sent Lupe with River City Creations a PM to get pricing for painted bowties, tail light bezels, fog light bezels, and fender badges. My request was pretty specific and when I got the price back, I decided to put it off for a bit. I don’t remember doing it, but I spoke to my wife about it and for Father’s day, she ends up calling Lupe and orders everything I got a price on. Now…the funny part is, Lupe posted pics of the work but didn’t say who it was for, however, I knew it was for me. HAHA! I couldn’t help but react when I saw it and my wife face palmed and came clean. We’ve told the story several times to friends…funny stuff.

When I began modding, I was going to stick with a black and white theme, but I changed my mind and decided to throw in a splash of color. My favorite color is blue and I thought if I went a little lighter than medium blue, it would pop better against the black and white. I chose something similar to grabber blue and had my brake calipers powder coated by mike@thepowdercoater.com. He did a fantastic job and they came out great. Even though I really like it, you'll learn later that I ended up going a different route and changing the color a little

One of the quickest mods I've done was install the RX catch can and oil breather cap. I'm not great with taking pictures while I'm installing stuff. I just get focused on what I'm doing and when I'm on a mission, pictures just aren't thought of. Sorry about that, I'll try to be better.

Great mod man, and worth every penny. The catch can and breather was/is fantastic. Also, I thought the Vmax ported throttle body was one of the best mods for the money too.
