Thank you!! We're sure loving this car!!

The bowtie is the LED one from AAC (Oracle). Lights up red. If you wire it a certain way it can operate like a 3rd brake light.

For you guys with the hash stripes, is there a specific vinyl name/color that is being used to match the OEM stripes?

Id love to throw some hashes on mine, but wont do it unless it matches. Gotta love OCD.

I would try plastidip. It sprays on and if you don't like how it looks, you can just peel it off.

I bought a cheap set of dash inserts and covered them in vinyl to match my doors.

I have a question for those of you that have plasti dipped your 45th wheels. Is it hard to peel off because i feel like it would be difficult with all the grooves and crevices in the wheels. Thank you for all feedback and comments!

Yes it is.

I've done it twice and it sucked both times.


I've heard using WD40 helps. Spraying WD40 on it and then it will supposedly come off easier.

Be careful with using a power washer on your car, the pressure can damage the clear coat and paint. My neighbor just bought a set of chrome wheels that were pressure washed by the previous owner and the chrome is peeling off like a bastard.

Your may want to add some bolt-ons to make to tune worth it. CAI usually doesn't require a tune and you would not gain much over stock unless you at headers, cam etc....
