Haha that's for true!

Might actually get the moldings on tomorrow so might have some pictures sooner than I thought

In a week I take it back to the paint shop to give it a super nice polish and waxin! Should look killer then...

Lol thank you, and yes, I have debated a black spoiler, but don't know if it would be too overwhelming with too much black...?

Honestly, I think the whole top half of the car painted black would be sick. I've only seen it done once and it was amazing (imo at least).

I wanted to at one point, but the down time while my lady and I only have 2 vehicles is prohibitive.

Not to mention we are currently expecting again , so it would be a bit pricey at this point in time.

Ya but I would want it glossy like the top and that would prolly be over $2800 because there's no way I'd paint that much of the car without having the whole thing shot and cleared all at once so there's no lines in the paint. __ like that...

And before I pay to have the whole thing shot I would def get my new body pieces first.

I'm thinking Roush Stage III front and rear, Rockers, and Cobra R style hood without the vents so I guess just a Cobra R style Cowl Hood.

But cage, torque box reinforcements, and Strut tower brace comes first.

Well I meant just for the spoiler... :-/

Plastidip the spoiler, see how it comes out... then cover in black paint and clear. If it looks bad, peel it off... still only costed like $30

Looks good. Once you get some body parts like front bumper, it'll look pretty sick.
