Well thank for showing off my car to the forum Jacob haha-

And yes I recently got a 986, my first car. I was inspired by his and got one for myself.

Love those DRL, nearly looking factory. Well done!

Not mine (jeez I wish) but one of my favourite/Best Boxster Pic

It was that photo that made me do the projectors in the first place took years off the front end and made that classic oval headlight shape more obvious.

just can't wait to see yours with all black, things may change. Get it done!

When the weather warms up a bit, I'll be getting the M030 springs, along with gloss black wheels with a silver edge and a silver inner barrel. Like this:



I wouldn't paint the wheels without lowering the suspension as it wouldn't suite it. Going to look fantastic though won't cost much either as I'll be installing the springs and painting the wheels myself. The only thing stopping me is this winter weather. It's freezing here!

Just have to figure out how to get that silver edge so perfectly.

Again, can't wait to see this Boxster car I think you got this right with leaving a silver trim otherwise it might be a bit 'black'. Good idea.

RE trimming/tracing perfectly circular shapes on car wheels, DIY a tool that plugs right in the hub. Use PVC piping or anything really. The red bit is a cutter (knife, pencil, whatever). Drill holes along the arm so you can position your cutter where it needs. You'll figure it out I'm sure.

Hope this helps! Nobody can do anything about that silly British weather though (I know what you mean mate)

Definitely not my best, but the sun was shining and I wanted to get some good daylight photos of my new silver and black hood and airbag crests.
