That's a tough one because it is a personal choice and a great way to separate your car from others. I don't know if the two-tone is possible because the styles are so different? One thing for sure the Dinan wheels are rare and look great now.
Oh…I would do a single color and no polished lip.

Finally got around to ditching the amber reflectors. It’s a small but impactful detail.
I need to do the same. Did you get them from IND or somewhere else? Also considering trying to use a pre-lci bumper since my current one is all chipped to hell anyway. If I’m gonna respray a bumper, maybe I can use one that didn’t have reflectors in the first place.

I Bought mine from IND, the paint quality is very good.

If you end up respraying your existing bumper than have them spray your reflectors and save yourself $95

Awesome fab work, but wouldn't a strap down the middle of the battery be lighter?

Yes, but where’s the fun in that?

That's a pretty serious fab shot you have there! Exhaust looks great!
Thanks. My fabricator is unreal; all the blue powder coat is his subframe reinforcements he fabbed last year. He also put some junk in the trunk last year.

A two boat owner,

It took me about 90min to wash and dry both cars including sweeping the garage. Its my Zen time, no misfires or limp mode. And now,
Auto part Metal Gas Cable Engineering

you can see the air boxes are uneven, the spark plugs must have all of the 77k miles on them. WTF! I guess I was a fool thinking you had to have the money to buy the car as I always do. I guess you just lease it and then throw it away, what a shame. I bought my Lighting new and paid for 60 months, never again.

I said I was a two boat owner, can't find any good pics of my 38 but that's a nice fish on our anniversary boat trip.
