    Likin the hydro too!! 4 sure ! It adds a whole new look to the parts you put them on makes them look less cheap as our cars with all the plain black plastic tend to look and the color and design you chose is perfect.Ive seen the website for hydro coatings and they have some real crazy looks. Great job!

    I applaud you for doing something different. My fogs are never on and i think deleting them really cleans up the front end. If my car ever goes in for paint i'll definitely keep this in mind. The grill came out nice but i think it's something i'd have to see in person.

    You really do great work. I love it. Was just tellin someone how much I wish I had a space to do this myself, someone with me that knew exactly how to do it and I would love to do it on my own. I bet the satisfaction of that would be an amazing feeling.

    Under the Hood: Smooth bellows, Lid, Catch can, LT Headers, ORY, AIR/EGR delete, Poly engine/transmission mounts,

    Exterior: Painted brake calipers (Red), Halo “Spyder” Headlights w/matching parking/turn signals (Black)

I always thought that a splitter/air dam under our f-fascia would look good too..make it look lower at the bottom? I think your fogless mod is great!

    Appreciate the props guys....glad the details are translating as planned. Hard to visualize things when they're in boxes all over the place. Probably would change a couple things, but pleased on how it's coming together. The grille is still 50/50 as far as a "go" is concerned, but really has to be seen in person to be appreciated or photographed better. Hard to catch the "coolness" in a garage with bad lighting.

    Biggest hurdle to overcome is getting it to run as it should. Laundry list of open issues to cover prior to, during and after. Has to be this week if this project is to stay on track. Stay tuned.....

    well i had my original factory bumper, (#1), i parked too close to one of those concrete parking things and cracked it. Wife freaked out and bought me a new bumper (yes sir) so I got it painted and put it on myself(#2).... NINE days later someone wasnt paying attention backing down my street and rammed my car, that did in my bumper, hood, and headlight, so i got it all replaced (#3)....i actually had to get that redone because they cleared it on a humid day and left a haze

    WOW....Well i gotta say the 3rd one looks as good as the 1st one ! I like the " i parked it too close to one of those concrete parking things and it cracked'....it just cracked?...cause you parked too close? Or you hit the concrete thing.....I know what you meant but it just sounded funny! Ive done similar things so........your not the only one. No worries cause your ride looks clean ! Cant even tell! Good luck !

    oh yeah, the car looks way better now, insurance even over estimated so i got a set of 6LE whistlered headlights and got my spoiler repainted.

    where I work has those concrete parking things which i clear easily, but on the back side of the lot is a walkway, its about 2 feet below ground level on one end, and 3 feet above on the other. its actually level and the parking lot has a sleight side to side elevation.

    So i parked like normal, but where i happened to be, the sidewalk is just a few inches higher than the barrier, so i cleared it, but caught the sidewalk with the bottom inch or so of my bumper

    FWIW, I have them......had them painted Storm Gray instead of black. Stock lights, just split apart, painted and resealed.

    Hillco sells the washers. They also provide chrome bolts...they're just metric button heads.
