Barton? Noted. Before I do any mods' like this I'm going to wait til' the ZL-1 is released. But I will keep that in mind once I start though!

I'm also considering doing the side mirrors in black too. I am pretty much done with the external look, the only thing I might do now is get a ram air hood. Now its time for the interior to get a little TLC

Thanks a lot, the Kit for the doors is 1300, but if you call Vertical Door Inc directly they will give you a deal!

I actually thought about getting the mirrors painted, but your right, doing a little bit of photoshop might save me time and money!

Thanks for the comment, your right, lambos aren't for everyone. Good thing about this kit is that if I don't feel like putting them up, they open wide enough to get in without lifting them.

Car looks awesome man.. The only thing that I would change would be to paint the herritage grill satin black. It looks odd white when all around it is black. Other than that it looks great.

I thought about that, but it has grown on me and when everyone else is painting theirs black to match, I kinda like mine standing out. Thanks for the input though!

Fenders are always turning heads! Gary's Customs in Florida is where I got them, great guy and he'll even paint them to match! Look him up here on the forum. Your whip is mean looking! White/Black is where it's at...Wicked!

Thanx. Yeah I will definitely have to hit him up soon. Not many (if any) local guys have the vented fenders.
