I still need to reinforce the radiator support as if I were to actually hit anything with it it would rip out the tin the radiator support is made of and probably puncture my radiator.
The bar is made of stainless steel, my original idea was to powdercoat it black, but when the fabrication was done and I bolted it on, I liked the shiny look the steel had, and decided to have it polished. The only downside is that even though it's polished it still tarnishes slightly when it gets rained on, which means I have to clean it up with some polishing compound every time it rains (Good thing it almost never rains here in SoCal). I asked my polish guy about a clearcoat powder coat on it but he said it would give it a cloudy finish.

I used to be all about the JDM fog look, I thought it looked really good, still do. I think I'm all set for lighting for the time being. The only other lighting mods I've got planned for now is an HID retrofit. But maybe down the road when I run out of other things to do to the car I'll look into a fog upgrade.
