Red face First try at attachments-Speedster Humps

Excuse me everyone if this doesn't work out like I planned. Wanted to include a few photos of the painted bumperettes and speedster humps that I just finished. If this works well I'll try using the attachments more frequently...

Nice look, did you have them painted local or where you ordered them?

Also you have a nice shine, I think I can see myself

I have always thought the red Boxsters look better with the amber look myself.

I think the amber in the tail lights looks great on a Guards red boxster. Certain color Boxsters just look better with the amber... I am considering de-ambering the front side marker lights though, just haven't found the right ones yet. Any suggestions? I had the humps painted locally for $200. Humps were from GT Motorsport. Glad the pics came out OK. Dropped the car off tonight for new shoes and re-alignment. Everything drives better with new rubber!

I painted the bumperettes myself, not hard to do yourself... Got the paint kit from Paintscratch.com originally to paint the roll bars but thought maybe it's too much red with the speedster humps, Or maybe not...

Hmm... the orange peel doesnt seem to match too well. Other than that pretty slick.

Damn you must have bionic eyes, you can really see the orange peel from those photos? I have a 24" mac and I could not see them? do i need to get my monitor checked? Do other see what he is talking about?
