    Sweet baby jebus... It looks great though. I probably would have done some motor work instead... But I don't care as much how my car looks... Just as long as it is got some powa!

    Took some more pix with I-pad. But when I attach I get message that tells me my dimensions are wrong. I don't know how to change the dimensions from my I-pad. Any ideas?

    Windows products have a free image resizer. But Windows is horribly inferior to Apple, so I can't help you with your iPad.

    I just went to the App Store and got a quick FREE app to resize images. In fact I just looked and it is actually called "Resize Image". Good luck.

    ----------

    BUT, after thinking about it, this forum will only let you upload so many pictures until you can't upload any more. ^He's right, photobucket is your best bet.

    I guess not if it makes you feel better. It's your $9,000 to do as you please.

    Yes, make a photobucket account and be done with having to resize anything.

    What exhaust you have on there or is it just aftermarket exhaust tips?

    So are you leaving the hood/roof/deck shiny, and the rest matte? I'm confused.

    Also, is there special ways you have to wash the matte finish? I'm guessing it doesn't get waxed? Sorry, trying to learn here.

    Yes the matte is matte and the gloss is gloss. There is a orange pinstipe between the two.
    The matte is satin clear coat and can be waxed just like the resy of the car. No wax for 4 weeks though

    The exhaust is OBX headers into 3" pipe with X-over and Matte black 5" diesel truck tips. Sounds awesome!!

    Sorry wasn't trying to be an ass. But people tend to chime in on custom paint without knowing what it takes to turn a RED car into this car.
