This thing looks amazing, the paint is just delicious O_O
I must say it's still a bit ricey with the lids (genuine or not, I've hated them since I hit puberty and realised what rice was) and to be honest I don't like the look of the spats or the front lip on any car, they look fine on the track but hideous on the street and the trunk lip, it just looks gross without being molded in.

ignoring those few things, it looks beyond fantastic

EDIT: the rim colour though, pleeeease don't go for that brass/copper/uber shiny look, they just scream rice :/

beautifully done man. A nice refreshed bugeye is a thing of beauty. I did the same to my 02 and just loved to look at it. You did a nice job with moding that bumper as well. And excellent idea with the colored carbon. looks awesome.

I didnt know IAG did bodywork and paint either. I thought they were just a performance shop.

DO WANT their paint booth.

and for the 3m trizact 5000. That paper makes buffing so much easier and the panel comes out so nice.

If you are calling this bug rice you need to reevaluate your your definition of rice. The V1 STi lip and front OEM spat combo are uber rare in the bugeye world. In addition to being rare they are amazing looking and require a dialed in car to pull them off like the one you see here.

Rally hope the ride was fun brother!

A friend of mine's GF is taking a photography class and decided to take a couple of shots of my bug and my friends bug. Be nice. She's a beginner with photography.

Stopped by a local car show this past weekend.









Got this as well.



Next stop will be Tuner Evolution in Philly. It won't be entered into the show since I am one of the organizers and judges. But it will be on display.

We had a great turn out at our show this weekend in Philly. Over 400 cars showed up and even a couple nice bugs.

Friend of mine grabbed some pics of my bug while I was working my ass off. Lol

I love how this shot captures how deep and glossy the paint is on my car.

It was a very fun and stressful project.

Here is another one showing off the pearl and candy.

Cage prep has begun.

All the panels are mounted. I still need to get some edging to eliminated the sharp edges and add a little more sound deadening material. I still need to figure out what to cover the exposed parts that are now visible since the seat are gone but for the most part I am very happy with the results.

Next up is the roll bar with integrated harness bar and some new harnesses.

I also converted all my gauges to LED's instead of the old fashion bulbs. And yeah they are not a JDM brand but Autometer gave me all my gauges so I didn't complain.
