Haha no worries I haven't done a ton lately but have definitely done some things I'm not sure if I'm going to have any mor BIG mod sessions we put the deposit down on the wedding and everything so all my money is going towards that direction for the next year or so

Matte black to match your theme homeboy for sure. Just wrap them if you aren't sure. If you are, paint them matte black.

I definitely think the side needs something, since the rest of the car has a lot of black/white contrast.

I would like to see some kind of gradient graphic in both of the "vents", or in the back one at least. Kind of like the SLP "fade to black" gill inserts but a single piece for the vents, or in the indentation of the side skirts.

A painter can air brush it on there too Im sure, just think clear vinyl with the faded black gradient would be a lot easier and cheaper to try out.

Yea i havent decided what Im going to do yet I actually have black mesh grilles that are going in that match my front lower bumper grille, I was thinking about a fade but its really hard to fade Flat or matte colors which is the whole theme of the car and i really like the carbon fiber mirrors but it doesnt tie into the car at all so I tried to stray away from it

Have a cheaper wedding lol. If you do it at a different location you can just invite close family and friends. Trust me, theres lots of ways to save money. Get a CZ ring now and put a diamond in it later, you are gonna hate losing that car

It would be extremely difficult to let it go because you love it. However, you have to do what you have to do only if you have to do it. I know how you feel, as I am in a similar situation. I may also sell my car for a career change, which will require me to free up as much funds as possible unfortunately. It will be a rough start so I need to make life as easy as possible. Good luck with your decision man, and do whatever you feel is best.

Lets get this straight I don't want to sell her guys this car is my baby and I absolutely love everything I have done and the way it can out and we already put down the deposit on the wedding, this is gonna be my wife guys and I want her to have this day however she wants it to be with no restrictions. Yea I love this car but in the end it's just that a car my family comes first and even more important my wife, I'm not going to lose a ton of money selling her if someone wants her for the price I'm asking then great I hope she goes to a new home but if not ill just have to come up with the funds some other way just so you guys all understand my situation I do NOT have to do this

I know it sounds stupid but you can't marry a girl with a fake ring man that's just out there in my opinion and the ring isn't even the issue I have already got her a 2 carot engagement ring she's set haha

I completely understand. I freaking hate borrowing money to man. It's the last thing I would want to do. I'd sell my car in a heartbeat for family if I had to. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but it's replaceable. Good luck my dude.
