    yeah go for it, i'd be interested in buying your rear filler too if you get a solid black one [don't paint the one you have] It looks like it's nice and solid red, mine is faded.

    some bitch backed out of her driveway WAY too fast and hit me with a 06 f-150 truck. It's fixed now and her insurance paid for it. I need to go get some new pics...with the key lines down the side. a$$holes.

    On all black cars I've always liked everything blacked out. Gives it a incognito look.

    TSS take yours off, sand it, polish it, and then give me a call I can cut a decal for you. Hey you could even design some kind of shit for it and it would be a one of a kind.

    I left my center piece stock.
    I also left the 'ram air' stickers on the hood.

    I consider mine 'mostly' blacked out.

    I also painted the mufflers a flat black to kinda 'hide' them a little from how they were before...you can see the difference in the pic above and this one below.

    Also got my hands on a CETA WS.6 badge for the rear of the car...

    Yeah. I want one of those ceta badges, too bad they're like 100 bucks that I could use somewhere more useful.

    You still have a nice car...I wish mine was that clean!

    Mine was $60. Girl's price when she worked at the stealership.
    I believe one of our sponsors should be able to get it around that.
