Yeah about that....I can't decide between the 03' 986 style or the 550 SE style. Something tells me that the 550 will look sweet with my color.

Yeah i would think 550 style would look good on the car, why not try a photoshop-off between the 2 options. Currently my taillights are modded to 550 style and i think they look great and would look good on any color porsche except Zenith blue and Red cause Zenith looks too good looking with half clear/half red lights, and and it might look like too much red on a Red body colored Boxster.

Looks great!

Other than wheels what else do you have planned for the exterior? Bumperplugs, painted bumperettes, silver hood crest?

Any interior pictures?

hey blink-

the amber "clean up" makes much more of an impact against your red vs. other colors. Really makes the car look fresh/newer.

I know the others are going the 550 SE taillights, but I'd vote for the standard '03+ because I'd want to minimize the 2 "reds" that don't match and break them up with the silver.

photoshop it for more of an idea. go to work DJ!!!

I'm feelin' it! I wanna see it with the hard top on.
Next, get those holes in the front bumper plugged up.
Your car is NOT red, correct? If that's the case, I may have to agree with jwilson95 on this one. Go with the red and clear (but make sure you get proper Porsche lights and not the "Euro" version).

So what color is that?

Good job on the b/w bg photoshop... You traced the car very well, and managed to tend to the details of scenery behind the windshield and roll bar!

I want to have the bumperettes painted,get bumper plugs,different taillights,new wheels,silver hood crest and side skirts.

The interior is so plain,I'm getting the center console painted in the next month or so. I will post pictures when I get that finished.

It's mainly red with a touch of orange I think.

So what color is that?

Orient Red Metallic.

I'm really thinking I should just stick with the clear theme,the front end looks soo much better clear,it should help the rear out as well.
