Stripes really aren't my thing but I gotta say that looks pretty damn good. Silver on red is cool. I wonder if red stripes on my arctic silver would look good?

Silver on the red looks really good! In Paul's case, if I were to do a silver car I'd probably opt for grey (maybe Seal Grey) for a subtle ghost look. But that's my taste.

Nicely modified Boxster! The stripes and Toth rear spoiler work well with the Z top. Your Boxster might be my 2nd favorite now.
Next things to look for should be AerokitII front bumper and side skirts... they are 2 of my favorite mods, along with the Toth spoiler and GT3Tek rear diffuser.

Yay, you are done!

now, maybe, just maybe sideskirts. But your Boxster looks great, even without them.

Looks good! From what I can tell, you'll never really be "done" with anything. You're a constant tinkerer, and I mean that as a sincere compliment. :-)

I think you need to find a subtle way to finish off the interface where the stripe stops at hood/ bumper line. It just looks slightly abrupt there. What do you think?

I have no skills or talent in comparison to yours, but was thinking something like this might look good.


But, yeah, it looks good as-is, either way.

Jan, your car looks great! It has a great performance look without being over the top. Remember, less is more.
