A few pics so far.. Boss lower, wheels, Saleen Grill...

Started out with doing the windows and powder coating the factory wheels. Also did the boss lower facia with splitter along with the Saleen Grill. Have a set of American Racing headers inbound as well as a Paxton SL-2200 supercharger kit too so I will be posting up some results in the future..

You can always Plasti Dip the wheels. That way, if you don't like the look...it peels off.

I was considering doing my Brembos like this, but it is just too black. If I could leave a painted lip, I would do it. However, the Brembo has no lip.

Looks good Chris. Boy, you're not wasting any time with the mods.

You still going to get baseline numbers before the engine mods?

Was going to throw it on the dyno Sat but got caught up in doing the nose. Will get it on very soon though. Already have the program pulled and ready. Have the Airbox sitting here waiting for some free time.

car looks awesome I love the white, just did the same mine to mine.

There is no way I would pay 800.oo for powder coating thats off the chart. should be no more then 50.00 to 60.00 a wheel.and then paying to have them dismounted and remounted and balanced no more then 400 total.
