Car looks great!

Looks great! Very classy. I wasn't sold on the looks of the new 8th Gen. I might actually consider upgrading from my 7th Gen when I'm in the market for a new car. Love the gray. Good job!

Here's mine, I recently got the stock 18"s powder coated semi-gloss black.
Besides tint, I've also done chrome delete on the door handles and rear chrome pieces with Plastidip.

I personally think itll be fine as long as your gentle in that area while washing.
How'd that vinyl wrap hold up? Going to get everything done tomorrow

Hey faze. I came across this picture from spoiler King and it looked familiar. I know you've done a lot of work and changes to your car since the original setup. Is this your car? Do you own this wing? If so, do you like it? What can you tell me about installation and/or anything else to know. If it's not your car and just super coincidental, please disregard. Thank you

Anyhow, if you dont mind answering, I have a couple of questions for you. Im probably picking up a Silver or White SL in the next 3-4 months. Im mocking up what Id like to do to it. I see you have the Stillen splitter on your car. Is it wrapped or painted? I intend to add it as well, but want the two end sections at the wheel well to color-match the body and the middle section be gloss Black (see bad Photoshop below). Which method would you recommend to achieve the best result?

Lastly, theres a bunch more mods I intend to do (chrome delete interior of headlights, add halo, blackout roof, etc.) I assume you do all your work out on the Island, I will do research myself, but was wondering if there is a shop outside LI youd recommend?
Appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks

I like that. Not really interested in customizing our car but it looked alot better with black wheels. Probablly do the same thing in satin finish. I might also take the emblems off the truck.

I can't believe I am saying this but I will probably tint the windows as well. Texas heat is brutal and with a black interior I probably better go ahead and do this.

Sorry for the late response. I don't come on here often. 'm pretty sure a quality vinyl shop can achieve the look you mentioned. I think that would be your best bet since vinyl is a little more forgiving when it comes to rock chips and such. My splitter is painted but shows wear after only a couple of months. As for a shop I recommend what area are you exactly from?

No need to be sorry everyone is entitled to their own opinion. To answer your question the whole point is that wide rims are more concave which is the look i wanted in the rear but i couldnt fit a fat tire back there to match so i had to stretch the tire to make it fit without rubbing...

Awesome color! About how much does it cost to do the vinyl wrap on the entire car and will it damage the paint if you ever take it off?

Were the brakes a direct bolt on or were modifications needed? Also do you have the part number of the kit you installed?

Around 2,500. And if installed and uninstalled properly no. It actually protects the paint.

Just the dust shields needed to be trimmed to accommodate the bigger rotors. Other than that direct fit. They are from a 370z. I bought them from z1 motor sports.com

Were any extra parts needed other than what comes with the kit? I see options for extra add ons on their site. Like the banjo bolts, are they needed? Planning on doing this mod early spring when I'm done with cosmetic and other performance mods.

Yea u need the banjo bolts and while ur in there i would do stainless steel brake lines also. Makes a big difference. Also make sure ur wheels clear the brakes. The are much bigger than stock brakes. Your stock wheels wont fit without 20mm spacers all around so keep that in mind. To be safe u need a 370z or g37 spare tire also

Thanks for the info man I appreciate. Exactly why I want to wait until the spring when I get wheels and then can do this mod without worries.
