can't really see much of the car since the quality of the pic isn't that great, but one thing i noticed was the tail light. i think it'll be better if you put the stock one back to have the clean look. those tails used to be all cool 5 years ago.

looks like you're on a good start. i like the blackhoused headlights. just invest some funds for the suspension and rims ... then the ride would be pimpin'

aznfunkyflip - I was actually thinking about putting the red lights back on - but needed some opinions. I should also have some new rims in a month - saving up for the Volk GT-7's. Sorry for the pics - Will put some better ones up in about a month when I get the rims - and will make sure I take them during the day. Just looking for ideas from other people. I am in the process of doing a hyperwhite LED conversion. Car now has 60K......so want to get moving.....

aznfunkyflip - I also noticed that you don't have the middle part on your trunk for the reverse lights and additional brake lights. What did you get - Carbon Fiber truck? What exactly did you do.....that looks sweet!!!!

I got the Carbon Fiber trunk from the V6P group buy we had few months ago. I believe they only made limited of those.

Volk GT-7's is nice, but Volks are too darn expensive.

i also think you should put stock tail lights back on...stock looks more classier, the euro ones look cheesy. other than that keep up the good work.

How much did you pay for your carbon fiber truck? By the way...I found a place to get the GT-7's for $1,980 ....plus shipping....comes out to $2,025. Not that bad......but still expensive. Still have to buy the locks and centercaps.

aznfunkyflip - Just curious, did you paint the carbon fiber truck? Or did you just leave it the color it came?

got the trunk for $385 picked-up (i think) and i didn't paint 'em or anything.

those GT-7's for $1,980 ... are those 18s? 19s? and does that for the wheels only or tires included?

seems you've got some nice plans laid out for your ride... rims and drop will change the look of the ride dramatically.. keep it up

BTW, avoid double-posting... just edit your posts if you want to add more comments

The price I gave above is for 18's and do NOT include tires. I really wanted to get some good quality light rims (because of the low end on our cars) that would last without bending hitting a pothole. I also really like the 7 spoke (not really spoke...but you know what I mean) design. I was looking into the gunmetal color. Have any better suggestions for rims (something light, good quality, gunmetal with chrome lip) that would better? Also I really loved your hood....I didn't find it on extreme dimensions. However, I was able to find a CF truck group buy....looks pretty recent...for four hundred and something.

Robby - didn't know that you could edit your posting...thanks!

whatever he gets, he just needs to not have those.

and about the wheels, think about it like this, do you run faster in lightweight running shoes, or with cement blocks on your feet.

if you put altezza's on the cement blocks, you'll run much faster.

Car is fine. Yet, I must opologize, but I just cannot stand Altezza lights. If you can, try a modified OEM style variation. Sorry, friend. That's just my opinion.

Honestly, I was going to put them on Ebay - selling the 3 peice set. Depending on how much you want to offer - I can maybe sell you the outer pieces and sell the middle somewhere else.....not sure though. IT might be hard to just sell the middle piece...but the middle piece has a little crack on the corner of it. The outer ones are in great condition.

someone was selling it to me for $30+shipping, but it has a tiny bit of scratch.

I'm willing to pay you the same amount if you wanna let it go for that much.

I know it'll be hard for you to sell the center alone, but since it has crack already ... then it's pretty much useless

Besides ... you'll have a hard time selling those tails lights because a lot of ppl hate 'em

True, true. I'd jump on the deal bro. And thanks for taking them off - I'm sure your car looks much better now. The pics are a little dark for me to see too much. But then again, I'm getting old now.
