Damn straight! You'll be in the FI crew very soon I bet. The ground effects completely change the look of the car, and you'll be happy with them I think. What color NS stripes are you going to get? You should get them in the same color the face of your rims are . Then, color match your brake calipers to the stripes and face of the rims too.

Thanks Ivan, I'll be on SW Speed site this evening looking. Hopefully I find something that just makes me "add to cart". LoL! Thanks for the compliments.

I wanna do IBM NS-1 or NS-3 stripes to match the wheels. Seth @ Night Shades sent me a swatch to pick the color, but I was away on work for 5 weeks. Now I can't get the color because he would have to special order the roll color. I understand not being able to do it, though. He'd have a lot of IBM left over, and no orders to sell it. MnP also said they can get the color. They can also do an NS "style" stripe kit. I'm really itching for a supercharger. Just went and put some wheels on my wife's car though. I'll post pics later.

I think so too pierre. GFX looks great. I like the Razzi front and side, but not the back. I also like the dovetail spoiler. Maybe I'll see that on SW Speed site. LoL

I agree with Tommy, and with all you got planned it's a shoe in dude...damn bro now we cooking man...as said nothing changes a cars lines more than ground effects...and those NS stripes I remember you were thinking about those for a minute.NICCCCCE.
Question have you decided on your final color scheme yet? Based on your wheels being blue I cant wait to see what color stripes you go with..
Check Laditee's build in a couple of weeks I'm going to do something different in regards to the fascia (I'll PM)...again man good luck with the build you know I'll be watching.

Oh yeah on a personal note bro tell that beautiful wife of yours to let a brother life...I mean she got the QUEEN BEE mobile:bow ::bow ::drool : I did mention that I FN love her car...after that purchase I thought at the very least you would have a couple of months of get of jail MOD purchase's ...

Rob, thanks bro! I'm gonna try like hell to get the stripes the same color as my wheels. That's gonna set it off. I'm trying to stay black and blue. I also thought about changing the color of my wheels to be more selective on stripe colors, but I really don't want to. My wife says thanks and hello back to you and Tee. I went and put the wheels on her car yesterday. Koko Koture Lindos, 22's. Man it's damn NICE now! I'll post some pics later.

Tim, I think early on that was the case. Now? Man your car has to be professionally built. I'm just a hard working dude, spending spare change on mods. Not even sure if I'll ever submit for COTW. At least not yet!

When's your next show? Did that magazine ever go to print yet? You know I want one when it does. Man, I show everybody your car. Especially when they think mine is nice. I say, "check out my homeboy's"...now that's a CAMARO!!!

Man, this combo is going to be the shit. I hope it all works out because you'll love the way it looks.

Your wife's car is badass by the way. I bet the 22's look bitchin.

No problem man...I thought that would be your color scheme but I wasn't sure after reading that you were thinking about powder coating your calibers red...I like the wheel color bro, you killed it. I'm sure they can do a custom color stripe, Photoshop the red calibers to your car just to how you like the contrast.

Damn bro i can't wait to see the pic's...sounds bad sick, congrats again to wifey...after all her success she deserves to boss out..

Thanks Tommy, here's a pic. Turned out NICE! I still think it has too much of a gap in the wheel well, but I'm not gonna lower it. I better not post anymore before she wins OCOTW (Other Car Of The Week) on this site. LoL

Damn!! Those wheels do look great. Ugh, I love those cars and would own one in a heartbeat. Driving a Porsche is a shitload of fun, especially turbo ones.

It was a suggestion, so I kicked it around. My wife thinks I oughta do them black. I think red would make folks double take, just not sure for good or bad yet. LoL. I did hers black yesterday. Man, she works like no one I know, and has supported me through countless deployments for 18 years (anniversary this coming Monday), so I had to hook her up.

Yeah, it's hard waiting for the break in period, 2000 miles. Porsche hit a luxury class with this car. The turbo was out of my budget, my wife thought. I wanted to go all out and get it. It's her car to drive everyday, so she was fine without it. LoL. The turbo is 500HP...probably low-mid 400's to the crank. She didn't want all of that.

I know man, it's a foofoo car! The concave is deep in the back. It's got Brembos too, and I did the calipers black. They were grey. I still have to get the Porsche center cap on Saturday. Yep, she's taking Da WHALE that day. LoL

She is! She's so tiny, and it's so aggressive. Hilarious to me when she gets in it. She's already trying to squirm out of it. Wants me to pick her car up from her job, and leave mine in the parking lot while I go get the center caps. LoL.

Her car moves, it's just quiet as it does it. LoL...she claims she wants an exhaust package and wants to go up PCH taking curves. I just laughed, and said let's go in my car first. LoL...NO GO!

Man, I'm hanging in there. Headed to Vegas in a few hours. Too bad it's this week and not next. But, my 18th anniversary is Monday...so we're headed back to the scene of the crime. LoL, we got married in Vegas in '94.
