I'm not sure if I like this or not. I like the GXP trunk and tails, but the rear cover on an SSEi is a bit much too me. I think it'* because the SSEi'* had nice body lines all the way around and the rear cover takes away from that.

I am astonished by the amount of quality work though. Great job.

I'll need a few days to come to a hard decision.

If you take that difference away, the paint and install look great!
the cladding on the doors is next then the GXP wheels go on wrapped with Goodyear Eagle GT'*

I love the ribs, I think it gives the car a more of an aggressive look that goes with the front end
