    I'd LOVE to see shots of the side!

    As a side note, my PC just died last night so no posting pics until the upload limit is changed

    Thank you for posting pics...I really like that look!

    Are you thinking of spraying/dipping the lower rear bumper? (It worked out well for me) That would complete the look IMO.

    Is that black chrome on your wheels? How's it holding up and what does it cost? Love the look!

    I have to say to again; that will complete the look! I'll snap a pic of mine and will try to cut down the size on my phone in the morning. New PC arrived today but is still in the box...

    That looks great. Can you post a picture of the front?
