    i think its lovely 2 things that are worth looking into tho IMO are

    1. Rear lights - the red and clear ones (red at the top and bottom, clear in the middle) or irmi ones!!
    2. tints are needed will help - maybe the half mirror tints so they blend in with the car


    otherwise sport on

    Looking good Darren, the car has come along way, I remember seeing it at PVS and it looked nice.

    Glad you got rid of the Lexus lights!

    Tints wouldn't go a miss, nothing too dark though...

    regarding tints thats why i said get the tints that start smoked and blend into mirror as they go down as it will blend the colour in aswell
