I really like the hood spears. My car is SIM also but with no stripes of any kind. I'm trying to convince myself to do these and possibly the sections nead the lower parts of the doors. Yours looks really good man.

Thanks, the hood spears really make a difference and show off the hood lines nicely. Most of the time when I go to shows or meets not many have them either so thats a good way to stand out.

Silver with IOM interior?... In my head it sounds terrible but after seeing pics I believe it's the best interior/exterior color combination! Keep it up man.

Thanks, I have many updates to add to this thread when I get a chance. I installed a RX Catch Can w/breather, dress up bolts, BBK LT headers, Trifecta tune, Pfadt springs, SS Brembos (soon to be installed) and new wheels.

I love how you have the part around the grill outlined black. What kind of paint is that and how much was it to get done? Thanks

Hey, you can get it from here:

Its pretty easy to install yourself if you just take your time with it.

Rafa, Looks good. I have to say the IOM interior looks great with SIM--Nice choice and the tint always is a sweet touch. You are doing such a nice job and it sounds as if you are doing most of the work yourself...how rewarding is that??!!!........

IOM pinstriping!!!

I can just imagine what the SIM would look like with subtle IOM pinstriping and eye candy on her....It would so compliment the IOM interior.....Getting me excited!!!...

Thanks, when I saw the interior I knew this car was the one for me. Yes it is rewarding doing as much work on my own as possible. Might be a pain sometimes but saving on labor $ makes up and I actually enjoy it.

Stealth splash guards

I added Stealth splash guards (front only) to reduce some of the debris hitting my car. You can't even notice them and they help. I attached them using the wheel well screws and 3M tape. They've been holding the past year and change.

Barton Tunnel Brace...



My exhaust was rattling on it so I fixed it the hard way and removed it completely and reinstalled. The rattle was fixed after that! Check out my MBRP cat-back.
