Why is that vert missing the fender moldings? Looks great otherwise...

I hadn't finished painting the mouldings at the time, they are on the car now. I tinted the headlights and taillights by re-clearing them and adding black to the clear to tint them. It turned out pretty good, Jimmy, the owner, was talking about changing wheels, but I love the way it looks like that. The color we used is a Dupont custom color.

^ I dig the 1st color. If I go silver I was going to do just the 4" cowl in satin black. Thinking about bringing it down inbetween the headlights though.

Thanks! I was lucky enough to stumble upon a real Saleen body kit for a 87+ car. I had to modify the front to fit though. Sides and back went on with no problem
