    We had a communication breakdown on another thread some time ago about paint, body parts and graphics in general. Couldn't find any examples back then.

    So, when I saw this ride today, I had to take a couple of pictures with my cell phone. Here's what I was referring to in a general sense for graphics and paint. Also, the "Spooned" rear wing is killer. Also really dig the hood and scoops as well as front bumper.

    I was thinking the fade on the sides could start mid point on the door panels and fade to flat black at the rocker panels. Then, paint the hood flat black, to match up with the wing. That would also make the graphics pop real nicely..... Also, paint the front and rear clips flat black. Give it a more Industrial/aggressive look.

    ^ The Wing and Body kit is killer! All joking aside... The wing gives it somewhat of a Pro Mod "Don't mess with me" look.

    A set of Wheelie Bars would also be something to consider...

    All joking aside, yes, they do kill the car... Along with any credibility the owner could have had. Everything about that car screams KIWF!

    That is an important component. Shift the blame over to Honda. :)

    One of the reasons I recommend Wheelie Bars, probably would have prevented that high a degree of chassis flex during those really hard launches.

    Of course they think it looks cool. I just poked fun at the car, no ill will towards the owner. If they like it who cares?

    Shoulda seen my hatch when I bought it. Had the chrome looking tail lights and chrome reflector on the rear door between the tail lights. Then, some kind of chrome reflective crap stuck onto the gas cap cover. Fortunately, the OEM stock rear door reflector was in the back of the car when I got it home. I took that crap off immediately.

    It looked so disgusting, I don't even have pics of it that way.
