    Why not the D3 brake kits? I was looking at the 8 piston in front and 4 piston in the rear.

    you said you wanted the blacked out look. I tired my best with photoshop




    The second picture looks weird. It was kind of hard to tint the headlights.

    Here are the rest of the pics that I took just for fun.. I plan on having the grille done by Friday. I will post the the pics ASAP!

    Im swaying between Black coated mesh behind stock horizontal slits, or stock all black/keeping chrome surrounding frame.

    Anyone love photoshop enough to create a black grille etc on the car? I know its been done before but it doesnt hurt to ask...

    Here you you:

    HAha I love it! Ng- you're car may be the only one aloud to have chrome handles. Looks classy on your color.

    Endo- I thought about black chrome, but seeing it on some customers cars, it seems a little purple-ish to me. Either going to keep it chrome, or like nick said- dip it all for a show quality finish.
