New Wheels and Custom Carbon Fiber grill!
Finally the snow has melted and the wheels go on. I ordered the carbon fiber from carbon trix cut it wth my scroll saw, put some door molding around it and WAM!!! I'll post better pic of the car later this week(it's dirty)

very clean look..and i also thought no one could put a gts symbol on and it look nice (i'm no proven wrong, fortunately)

one question though: thats a solid piece of carbon fiber, right? (not mesh). does this hurt your Intake air flow? (or do you have CAI)?

how much did it cost you to do the grill thing including the emblem...and about how much time...very clean looking

i haven't noticed any performence loss at all!!! the emblem cost me about $20 bucks, and carbon trix is where i bought the carbon fiber check'em out. I'd say this was a 5 on the difficulty meter(1-10) cause i only had ONE peace and took my time measured 5 times and cut many.
