    Looks good from the pic, but I must say, it's an odd color combo considering the rest of the car.

    Well I mean, work with what ya got, you know. I guess I'm powder coat spoiled, cause I have a friend that does it at home for next to nothin if I buy the powder. Twelve bucks for a pound of powder and maybe a case of beer and I'm set. I guess maybe I'm spoiled.

    But seriously- if you ever come across a good deal on it- go for it. Well worth the money. :)
