Honestly not much. Paint and install new mirrors, repaint lip, side skirts, end caps, and grille.

They definitely "pop"

Not the best lighting job on my part. I'll have better pics after I wash it for IA this weekend. Also got a close up of the new mirrors...yeah I had the carbon fiber painted over. I've seen the bases painted before, but not the actual mirrors. I definitely liking them sans CF.

It's on the list

As well as MCR canards, Craft Squares, and I actually have been entertaining the idea of a rocket bunny kit just to be the first black one. But now that I've got it in writing on the board, I'm sure someone else will beat me to it haha.

It might sound kind of dumb, but I felt like I had too many dark colors on the car. Silverstone body, black roof, dark windows, dark grey lip/sides/rear, dark grey door handles.

After seeing it all together, I just realized that I wanted to add more color to car, and I wanted to do something a bit different. Once these tires call it quits, I'll skip the new tire stickers and probably go with some different colored lug nuts too.

I'd love too but I haven't booked a room yet. Most likely I'm going with a buddy of mine next year. I wanna get some things done before I take it to a big meet
