Thank you my friend
Next mods I would like are:
- Eibach springs -1inch
- center of bowties with matt black instead of carbon
- cristal side markers

Few months ago I was thinking about some special stripes as picture above but I'm not sure.

The 45th stripes are unique so I suggest you keep them as is!

I see what you mean, I want to keep 45th's spirit, this is why I think to do something similar as this one, but keeping same grey as origin.

Thank you CamaroLB
Covering job has been done by 10 hours, curve building from front bumper to the hood has taken around 30 minutes to freeze, I'm very happy from the result.
