Next set of mods for AJP

I got bit by the mod bug again after 6 months.

I ordered the Revolution splitter and T3 ACS ports which arrived yesterday.

I am replacing my ACS splitter which was damaged, luckily for me it was damaged by my wife, so I had no issues spending cash the replace it

The ports will be a semi-gloss black, the splitter will be IBM.

In the next few weeks I am hoping to get a vinyl wrap on the front portion of the splitter and the havoc side skirts in a semi-gloss back also.

I have been playing around with PS to get a feel for a paint scheme, I also got a banner from Revolution for the windshield...enjoy, and I will update soon.

#1) Just got a call from the body shop, next Monday !!!

I decided not to put on the Revolution splitter, so the ACS splitter is back on. Shop said that is probably the last time it can be repaired...

UPS quoted me $200 to ship it back, so for now the revolution splitter is decorating my garage.

New grille test fit should be soon

The T3 ports are painted semi-gloss black, need to get some time off work to get them installed.

Just got back from the shop (had to have some touch ups done, so I had them install the ports without lighting).

The bonding agent is still wet so 24 hrs before I can wash the dust off.

I did notice that the ports were not as flush as on some of the pics I have seen, not sure if that is an issue with the ports or the install.

Enjoy!

G5 ******* grille next!

Just to add, they are not as wide as I thought they would be (which is a good thing).

I like them, makes the car look more aggressive, however 2 things:

1) On IBM they dont show up as much as they would on a lighter color.

2) They might look better if they were flush with the body.

Did they shim the ports from behind that is the only way to get them to sit flush
