    Looking shmick! Make sure you get some tail lights with reflectors in them so you don't have any issues with insurance if you ever get rear ended. :)

    this is a little off topic but in your old thread, with the old spac, you put a black grill on the front bumper, did you di it yourself, do you know where i can get that material from? i thought it was really effective and a great idea

    will you do it to this one?

    I got it from the internet, guys on ebay do the mesh for about $50.
    Then I took it with the bar to the plastic welder and got him to weld it on, I wasn't just going to dodgily glue it on like most people do.
    I was thinking of keeping the bar and putting it on the SS but decided not to cause I didn't 100% like the end result.
    I want to do something in the bottom bar again, but I haven't thought of it as of yet :(
