Body Scoops and Accent Stripes

I wanted to do something with the Gills. They are NOT my favorite element of the 5th Gen so I initially used some black vinyl to make them pop, but that didn't work on the IBM color. You could barely see the vinyl. So I went a little more aggressive and installed Xenon Body Scoops over them. Again, my body shop had to do some minor shaping to the pieces before paint, but I think they turned out beautifully! To highlight the scoops I added Pulse Red Accent Stripes above the kickers as well as Hood Spears. I really wanted to do something different with color choice so I stayed away from Black, White and Silver. It is probably the mod I get the most compliments on...though I know it is a love it or hate it piece.

EDIT: February 2013 - Covered the red stripes with Matte Black Vinyl for a new look.
