yeah,Im definitely happy with it but I wont lie. Part of me wishes my car were white or black. Its a good thing the gold was as soft as it is otherwise it may have been to much for the silver

Your Z was white, it's good to have something different

Silver is much easier to maintain over a long period of time anyway

friend I recently made at a meet hooked me up with a nice headlight restoration. The pic doesnt do the before pic justice of how sh*tty they looked and how good they look now, its a shame. They look brand new.

4 sandpaper grit steps
polish
clear coat

the correct steps

I havent noticed it on the tails yet. Probably because the spoilers helps block sunlight and the fact they dont point up much. Unlike the Z tails, they curve up and allow direct sun light to hit them.

priced out a kit as well. I think Ill be buying all the pieces in about 2 months. $1900 for the parts isnt that bad. I got some fiber glass parts since I dont expect to be bottoming out and testing its flexibility. I never had to worry about it in my Z and it was lower then my G currently is.

Im not going with off the wall parts this time, keeping it subtle and clean

went out and snapped a few pics today. Took a break from work so I didnt have time to find super pretty locations. Out of 30 pics this is the only one I liked
only had my iphone 4s so quality isnt so hot at the distance the car was at
