That is a good call... Yellow calipers would indeed be a bit too much, but black with yellow decal is a very classy touch!

..you guys have done an AMAZING job, seriously. Definately have me thinking of a few mods now that are a must.

What grille is that exactly and the ducts from the lower grille is from Street Scene? Did you have to cut in the OEM lower grille to install those? If so, how did you get them to say secure to the car? When are you guys going to sell the LED Mirrors, painted in black?

The lower scoops are from street scene and yes we did just modufy the lower grille. This is a much more cost effective way.

We have done quite a few sets of the led mirrors in black. I will send you some pics.

Paintly awaiting the pics, I couldn't find a price for the ducts let alone ordering them. Is that the Hertiage Grille?

Ok your killing me here, I check everyday for an update so see what new things you guys have done. Now I know that mods take time and money (which is why I don't have but a couple) but you gotta give me something.

Nothing crazy. Just a couple subtle interior mods. I painted billtet caps for all of the contol knobs. As soon as i don't drive the car as often i will paint the rest of the interior parts such as the gauge bezels, center console, etc.

Lol, it wasn't my idea. We did it for a local customer first. Then I said to myself. I need that.

what kind of adhesive did you use? silicone? gorilla glue? I am concerned with heat/cold heat/cold, super glue does not work, after a couple weeks of temprature changes it doesnt stay on.

I used silicone. I have had good luck with it. Silicone will not expand and contract due to weather changes.
