Back from Body Shop Today

I am really pleased with the results, although keep in mind my car is still in progress...some of you may see the beautiful rear window with the "cracked/silicone/packing tape" look

I just need to bring it back for a few minor gap issues (installer really had a hard time with some of the aftermarket fiberglass stuff). As some members here have stated, it may be wise to buy oem, as I would have done if I had the wits to check here first.

Enjoy...

WOW Kevin, that turned out SWEET! Great job on the body kit selection. It totally now has the looks to match its track power! Where did you get the kit from? It has a more meaner lines to it than mine. I like it a lot!

Don't worry about the rear window... With the winter (or lack there of) we've been having here on the sf bay/sacto area, you can easily take some drives with the top down and nobody is none the wiser!

Excellent job. Really nice looking. One of my top favorites here.

Cheers

Mark

Nice ! The only thing left would be to paint the wheels black or gunmetal .

Thanks for all the compliments. I got a lot of the inspiration from the forum, so I owe a lot to you guys.

Hey Mark, I actually got the kit from ebay...the fit isn't as nice as yours, but I agree, it does look a little more aggresive.

Somehow, I knew you would say that Johnny!

The shop is TNT Autobody in Sacramento. Tony specializes in body kits and you will constantly find BMW's, Porsches, G35's, etc in there getting a facelift. Big on SEMA and the Import scene. I highly recommend them and let him know I sent you.

Kevin

Looks great. I look forward to doing something similar to mine too.

Any thoughts on adding the top vent to bumper for the full GT3 look?

Looks good. Do you have different wheels on the fronts than the rears?

Yes, sir! That is still one of the very bad habits of tracking one's vehicles. We trackers just seem to find whatever rubber that is still good and stick them on the car "temporarily."

I am in the midst of replacing the return line to the power steering, as I have a major leak and grinding at turning. Then, the rear plastic window. Then the caliper painting.
