As well it should - I copied your idea :D

:lol: :lol: :lol:

It's funny how you and I have come full circle mate. I stole ideas from you and now you from me. Cheers is in order.

I know with the lip you are kinda going for a grey skirt all around but I would be interested to see how the lip would look pained. Maybe get another one and shoot it 426? I think I'm a little lower than you (maybe because I don't have 18s ATM) so I doubt I would rock that look. I may change my mind if I saw it painted.

How hard was it to find the tails? I haven't seen any for a while. Probably because they weren't as popular as the headlights? They don't look as bad as I would have thought.

Got them from Justin back in the winter. Had to paint them, 'cos they come with silver sides, and make the "D" pillar look flat.

Use 'nightshade' tint, black out the sides, clear coat the whole mess.

Forgot to add my revised DP & ported WG on the Hahn Mitsu 10cm2 hotside. Modified the "Y" pipe in back to even out exhaust flow - both mufflers are equally sooted now.

This will all change again as I prep for the LGSpeed Header, of course.

The trim that wraps around the front bumper and down the sides of the car.

The bumper cover was professionally painted this time. The door trim all came off a silver V70 - I didn't paint any of it. My original painted XC cover I used rattle can paint mixed by the local auto paint supply along with U-Pol clear coat, and high fill flex primer to get rid of the texture surface. Don't know what brand of paint they mix, I never paid attention.

Latest additions: & my custom design intake, fabricated by Nathan from TB

Looks very impressive, congrats on squeezing in that killer tubular manifold back there.

What were your gains from the intake manifold when you installed that, anything profound numbers wise or was it more of an eye-catcher?
