Thanks! I try to do things that are tasteful, but will make the car stand out. I however am beginning to run out of things to do at the moment as I have been doing everything so quickly because I just can't stop! lol

Thanks.

And yes I did cover them. Used plastic grocery bags that I have way too many of.

A little over spray got on the rotors where I didnt have them covered completely, but a drive down the road and back using the brakes as normal cleared them right off

I got the other two done this afternoon too, so now all 4 wheels match..might have to do an early photoshoot just because I don't have the patience to wait and do one after my last appearance mod being shipped finally arrives.

Well as soon as you finish all the cosmetics, theres a whole other world of performance based mods you can get into. That should continue to satisfy that mod bug bite you got.

Haha, true... but performance costs $$$ and appearance so far for me has only cost me my time and cost of supplies.. perks of running a business that does this

but I am sure performance mods will begin soon lol
