Super clean, well coordinated build man. It's very clear that you put a lot of thought into each of your mods. Looking forward to whatever you have up your sleeve for the next round of mods!

Ain't that the truth! After my last round of mods I promised myself that will be it, I'm done! I woke up the next day thinking "boy that Hurst shifter is noisy, I definatly need to go with an MGW"! There's no hope!

My gf suggested that I should look into matte black stripes. She saw some on google and said that "my car would look sexier" with them lol.

I think my next biggest mod is probably going to be a cam but that's gonna be next spring if it all works out.

Matte black would def. look tight but I dig the red. I considered going matte on my CGM, but I think the red pops just enough when you're rocking a smaller stripe package like you and I both have.

If you go to MB stripes, what style would you do?

A cam would be juicy too dude. I've known a couple guys with cammed LS3's and it sounds so sick. Not too bad on the bank account either for the HP that you get out of it either.

Debating the style. She said she prefers racing stripe but I don't know yet . I had these before and been thinking how they will look in matte black. Or I could go with harsh marks and hood spears in matte black. Decisions decision

I can post pic tomorrow morning after work. But pretty much I placed the passenger one by the fuse box and the driver side by the washer fluid bottle. At first I was gonna install them behind the headlights but if a ballast goes wrong this way I can just swap them out in a few minutes.

So i finally had enough time to try out my new canon t3. First I would like to say that photography is not as easy and definately not one of my strong point lol. Throughout my mini photoshoot the cloud kept covering the sky and kept making the pics darker or brighter. Not only that but deciding on the angles to shoot is another game but overall im happy with my pics. Yes I know I could of have shot better pics but im just a car lover doing this for fun. So enjoy the pics

Overall, I'm very happy on my decision for exterior mods. It's enough to be noticeable but not be too distracting. I think that the next mod for raven is going to be some love under the hood. Really debating a cam, but we will see

So my beautiful girlfriend told me that matte black and red stripes would look hot. So I ordered my hash marks and hood spears from mnp. To my knowledge I guess I only ordered one pair of hash marks . So instead of waiting for another pair I decided to install them with a lil twist. Matte black stripes with a red pinstripe . Overall I def live the look and got to thank the gf for giving me awesome advice!
