Detractor checking in: I for one do not prefer the black. But I don't strongly dislike it either ... It just seems that the side profile would look a little wierd. But I would have to see pictures of how it would look from the side to be sure. If it looks good from the side, I'd be much more okay with it ... Just my $0.02.

Well here she is in all her glory. I get it put on tomorrow and I have my new headlights waiting as well! Should clean the car right up and the Cobra sideskirts are on her already. Here are 2 teaser pics:

Final product:

I will get some pics up later tomorrow evening with how everything flows from the side as well as the front.

Looks great man...I think its time for some 18s to help balance out that bumper...it looks pretty big against the 17s.
New wheels and tires would be around 1200 probably and its just too much when I have what I like now. I will be throwing some deep dishes in the rear eventually but these tires are 6 months old and the rims are about a year old. I actually kinda like 17's better than 18's even. Cheaper tires and wheels too.

Thanks guys for the compliments! I think it turned out great and Kornnut you are right about the body work.. The guy I took it to did an awesome job and I couldn't be happier!

I think twice over almost anything now haha. I am considering putting iso's back in the front to bring it up just a little bit and it still won't kill the look of the car I dont think. I have cut it close on things but I haven't scraped it at all.... yet. It's coming and I will cringe when it does but I just got to tell myself its just a car and it will be ok, I hope. :rolleyes:

I bought some BBK urethane isolators to raise mine a little more. Will install soon. I already changed front springs once because it was completely impractical when my car was slammed.

Car looks great!:nice:

I am really thinking about it before hitting something and then regretting it. The front is a bit lower than the rest of the car anyways so it won't look too out of place if I raise it up just a touch. and thanks to you as well;)

I finally felt priveliged enough to go to an actual meet this morning and had a great time. It was a cars and coffee so needless to say there were plenty of cars way over mine but I felt great that ppl were looking at it! :nice:
