Thanks guys I painted the black bumperrettes I find it gives the car a cleaner newer look. I am looking into deambering the car now.

Thanks guys I appreciate the comments. The wheels are 18 and I just installed new tires. The windshield was replaced while the car was at my Body shop. My body man setup the windshield replacement through a guy that does all his work. Very professional work. If you ever need body done I would recommend him.

My next project is to change the headlights I really don't like the amber. If anyone hears of a good deal I would be interested.

I lucked out on the windshield I was able to get an OEM windshield installed for 700. I think the going rate for windshield replacement is about 900.

I'm not a normally a fan of Guards Red, but those wheels and tires really make the color pop! Very clean stock look(I'm so glad to see that you didn't add a tacky spoiler)! Jmo, but I'd leave the amber. Looks amazing.

I'm trying to leave the car as stock as possible just not sure about the amber yet. Thanks for the positive comments. Never thought owning a car could be so much fun.

Very nice-are those front grills black? stock? I just painted mine as I did not like the faded grey-stood out too much.

The grills are actually grey. I guess the angle of the picture makes it look black.
