Car is prepped, primed and ready to go for the wrap!

Got my 06+ heads coming in this week(thanks to UltraBootz) and working on my gloss black grill at home. Exterior is almost done. Just need legit clear side markers, new taillights and a front and side splitter.

After that Ill most likely dive inside the car for interior updates.

Going with 3Ms new pearl white gold sparkle wrap. Recently saw a Fisker wrapped in it by the shop doing my wrap and its gorgeous

So yesterday I jumped on the interstate...hit a dip in the road at about 60mph and one of my exhaust tips fly off, bounces and go over the car behind me and roll into the median.

Luckily it didnt hit anyones car and Im not sure how since there were a good 10-12 cars right behind me.

Last week I was doing work on my car, removed the tips and the only thing I can think is that I didnt tighten all 3 bolts that hold the tips on the piping. I took the remaining tip off the car and only one was tight as well. I guess I should say Im doubly lucky since they didnt both pop off.

Anyways, now Iv got 2 new tips on the way to my house. The current ones are nearly 3 years old and pretty worn so I figure what the hell.

The tip ended up with some deep cuts and the opening is now shaped like an egg. It took a beating, could probably be repaired but Im not about to drive around with it like that.

Went with ConceptZperformance since each tip was only $75 a piece after shipping. Motordynes site wanted to charge $111a piece after shipping. Nothing like saving $70 on something I shouldnt have had to replace.
I guess my new duradal center caps will have to wait!

New interior LEDs. Doors, trunk, license plate and over head/courtesy. Made sure to wait until night to get the true brightness. So much better then those garbage dim yellow lights. Makes the car feel a bit nicer too.

Car dropped off at the shop for the wrap! Body shop apparently missed a few things and now Iv got to pay over x2 as much in labor cost for them to go ahead and fix it....

anywho, 7-10 days, optimistically speaking and $2500 later
using these guys

Next on my list is either replacing the stock bose head unit and/or new front seats or reupholstered seats to a deep red.

I have ZERO knowledge of seats so I have a bit of research to do. However the only seat Im really liking due to color shade and style are these Braums. Im not a fan of seats that hug my shoulders or thighs.

I dont know how much safety comes in play and what I should be really looking for so yeah, reading is needing.

Just got the car back yesterday from Atlanta Custom Wraps and took a couple videos in different lighting.

Let me know what ya guys think...not like its going any where for at least 2 years.
any gold/yellow you see is the wrap, not the lights
