thats your opinion... what color were you thinking... i would think a re-paint in red, or like black or something would look fine, just take your time and do it right... its all in the little details

There are a few good kits out there.

The one we offer seems to be the most complete. It includes everything from cleaner to gloves...

I don't have mine on my car yet, but i'll post some pics of them.
For now, the cameraphone pics will have to do until I get my car done.




They are powdercoated a charcoal metallic, and the letters are reddish orange(matching my wheels).

Been thinking of the same thing, but I think it is borderline cliche - possibly a bit rice-tastic?


I want to see a pic of this as well.
