The best example of an L36 one would be YoungGunLs1'* painted cover

Custom FWI, painted to match the color of my car.


Wait..am I still doing these things for you or did you have them done already somewhere else? Lol I'm confused

Oh and to stay on topic.. those all look like a great start but I can tell you from experience that it will not stop there. Once you start doing these things it never ends lol.

I can only do so much appearance things to my car, now I am trying to stay occupied with performance things..I don't think it will ever end! I have more of each I want to do, and every day the list seems to get longer!

Yes Guns, you are still doing my tails and FWI for me. The only thing I'm waiting for is my body guy to get my center reflector pulled off the car.

Unless you wanna drive up to my place and start ripping my car apart LOL. I don't think you wanna do that though. Even though the cost of paying for your gas might only be a little more than shipping those giant things LOL.

I don't plan on too much performance. Just the same exhaust and tips as you, the FWI, a smaller pulley, and a tune is all I plan on right now. Everything else is just too spendy for a car that won't see the track.

The two tail light housings AND the center reflector? I highly doubt that. UPS or FedEx would be cheaper.

I don't see how USPS would be so cheap considering their weight and size.
