yeah the plan with that it cos the brake calipers and all that are the same colour, that red is the secondary colour. want to get the instrument cluster and all that red as well, i like it against the colour of the car.

How did you go about getting the interior all blue?

Is that powder coated?

How much did it cost?

Does it look as good as it does in the photos?
