First white 1LE I've seen without the wrap.....I actually don't like it removed. I'd have to see it in person but I love my wrapped hood. Car looks good though man!
I did like the wrap also, but it was too much to take care of especially since this is my daily driver (I am almost at 7000 miles...). I also like it removed because it seems cleaner, but it just doesnt look as badass. Everyone in my family is telling me to get it rewrapped or painted. I wouldn't mind painting it the satin black (same as rear spoiler). I will decide later lol. Here are some better pics of the hood wrap removed and the car lowered...

Thank you! Lowering the car changes the look completely...

Window tint is already done, sir! 30% all around except windshield. Looks much better! I haven't taken any good pics yet. I will soon though. Just washed her last night.

Thanks! I love the color too. Clean white car on black rims makes for great contrast.

Thank you! I lowered the car using Pfadt lowering springs (1.25"). I've neglected my journal lately since I've been so busy. I will update it with details and more pics soon.

Thanks! I can't wait to see what you do to yours. Especially since we have very similar cars, currently.

I have been so busy lately that I just have not had time to write about all the things I have done to my car lately. Since the last set of pictures I put up, I have done quite a bit.

30% window tint on sides and rear
Cold Air Inductions CAI (Black)
Apex Scoop and Water Bottle Relocation Kit
Gorilla Wheel Locks (Black, smaller aftermarket style)
Plasti dipped front fascia/bumper opening by headlights and upper grill
Plasti dipped rear tail light bezels

Also added spark plug non foulers (short) to the secondary O2 sensors because the O2 extenders were not keeping the CEL off. So now I have the secondary O2 sensor screwed into an extender, the extender screwed into the non fouler, and the non fouler screwed into the mid pipe. Kinda ridiculous to keep the CEL off, but it is still tight and still working after 500 miles of both highway and city driving. Now I just have to address the exhaust leak because of the crappy gaskets between the manifolds and mid pipes.

Pictures and a better write up of each mod will be up either later today or tomorrow hopefully.

Looks fabulous

Looks awesome. White is great on the 1LE.

Just saying that I'm copying your mod list and following with great eagerness. Will Be modding with some of your mods to my Black 2SS 1LE soon. You are an inspiration.

I have the NPP exhaust, can i do anything that will make that a little louder without throwing away that system?


Thanks
Jim

Pull the J8 fuse from the fuse box in the right rear quarter panel in the trunk! Keeps the baffles open full time!

Car looks great man! Personally Id go with hood spears on your car, not cause I have them, but I dont like the whole hood black, and there arent too many stripe options that look modern to me, most look old school (which is fine for a lot of builds, but yours looks so bad ass). Flat black hood spears that are pointy on the end, not rounded would look awesome and help breakup all the white on the hood.

Gotta love those tips, I have the same ones.
