What makes the basecoat /clear different than the single stage color wise?

Show off haha. He made a carbon/ kevlar would look great on you're car. Not to the point of bolting it up. I'm unsure if I'll like the look it gives the car

Why build a car if not to show it off :mrgreen: I can see how you might be a little hesitant though. It makes a strong statement, and if it's not the look you're going for it could be a little over the top. Specially if your going for a more stock look. I have the sinking suspicion carbon fiber will be out dated sooner than I think. I gues that's why god made black paint. :lol:

Your car is looking absolutely amazing BTW. I've always been intimidated by that level of detail. I just don't have it in my.

I don't know about the spook. I suppose if you don't like the CF you could always paint it a flat black or body color. Now one of the lips like the Hakos have :o
I think some old JDM wheels would look great on this.
Are you still going to hang around with us when you get back to the NW? :cry:

Not sure what you mean "get back to the NW"? Normal World, Nut wagon, North West?? I'm hear, and I don't plan on going anywhere, so yes, I'm hanging. As for the wheels, the plan is a set of XXR 522. Very simple seven spoke, flat black rim. It's a Volk TE37 nock off for about 1/5 the price. I do plan on going to Canby next year, so hopefully I'll see you and your car there,

MAN! There is a fantastic synergy going on between the chrome bits and the shade of blue you chose. F**king brilliant! I'm with Byron, those tail lights are flat out gob smacking, but it's the blue against the frame that sets it off. Now that I see the body color in sunlight, I'm in lust. I can see why you're questioning the CF bumpers. IMO chrome is the way to go. Hat's off 8)
