    The contrast looks good Mike. Mine's been around for quite awhile and you've probably seen it, but if not. Here it is again. Cecil.................

    Both cars look nice. It really makes the engine bay look clean. I was thinking the same and wanted to send mine to Advan Carbon to have them overlay mine but I like the wrap as well.

    Cecil, have you had any issues with the heat and the hydro paint? Also, is your finish really smooth like or does it still have the texture like it did before it was painted.

    No issues Mike. Its been over a year and still smooth and glossy. Eddie at ProImageing told me that I should treat it just like paint. It has a clear coat over
    the image. That red does look good. You must have read my mind because I was thinking the same thing. Now if you get it done, you will have to paint
    the calipers red too. Cecil..............

    Jim, I'm surprised. I thought you didn't go for any of the flashy stuff.

    Not if its done right. I've been wanting to get my calipers red and install midnight sapele trim for awhile now.

    And if I ever spend money on swayde, look out!

    Why does my 2011 coupe have a metal plate at top of the blower like one of the engines in this link, but other blowers have a ribbed top?
