That's looking really good! It's making me want to get mine done soon!!

Your car is coming out so amazing man. I'm also really glad the painter was honest about it, and wanted to redo the work. That shows class, and he deserves your business.

Thanks guys...I'm really happy with how clean the lines are. I'm going to stop in to the shop tomorrow and see how the rest is going. I'll let you know how it goes.

Ok...these aren't the best pics and honestly, the car hasn't been finely polished yet. Just a buffing compound so far. overall, I'm really happy with it. Notice the rear quarter panel gill delete

I hope you like it....

Thanks man...I'm REALLY happy with it. Just a little more wet sanding to do in some areas and then a complete buff and polish. It still hasn't been polished yet, only a rough compound

The only thing on the exterior I may change is the rear diffuser. I ruled out the Havoc but I'm thinking about the mpd1 painted black. I'm really hesitant to pull that trigger though.

I just looked out of my office window and noticed the blue on my car glowing like nobody's business. So far, the other pictures are on overcast days. I can't wait to get out and have a good quality photo shoot done.

This is what the blue does when the sun hits it from an iPhone 4 Camera:

Thanks! I was thinking about cutting in fender vents and then went 180 degrees in the other direction. I'm really glad I did.

My car is back at the paint and body shop so they can fix the items on my punch list. I should have it back by Tuesday.

The good news is, I picked up some of the pieces from the engine cover they painted and it's looking sweet. I'll post some pics of that later.
