Got my door projectors in today. Really wish I had time to install them before Fest. I'll be bringing them anyway, I'm sure I'll find a time to install them on Thursday or something. Install doesn't look too hard, and the directions are pretty detailed.

note: I flipped the photo so you could read the text, it's actually backwards so that when it projects onto the ground you can read it.

Pics of the new lower grille - it's based off of the Leno grille.







And we're off

Time for a "appreciate her new paint" pit-stop.





My attempt at catching the metallic flakes. It's impossible, you need to see her in person to fully appreciate the PBM. Also, at certain angles she looks a dark purple/black. In my opinion, this is what IBM's rebellious twin sister would look like.
