So nice. How long did it take?
STI, wingless, with the Vane is the absolute best combo.
Add black wheels, painted calipers and tint and youve got one hell of a ride!

thanks for the good replies people. it took about a day to do it just taking it easy, not rushing anything. prep is no fun but it is worth it in the end.

How did you prep it? Just fine sand it then paint? Did you paint the weight balancers or did you remove them and get them rebalanced?
