Well this spring I needed to change the look of my car so with a little help of Elliot at ModBargains (Avant Garde M310), g8Pnsher (Bathurst Stripes), and a can of plastidip. Here are the results.

Thats a great combo right there! It really looks aggressive and menacing...

Is it dropped at all?
Thanks. Yeah I used to get looks every once in a while now everywhere I go people just stare.

Yeah I have it dropped on Eibachs with Fe3 struts. I just did that two weeks ago too. Forgot to mention that.

Looks great! Yellow calipers next?
Thanks! Yeah I'll paint these ones yellow and then once I get some more cash saved up I'll get some 4 piston CTS V's and powder coat them yellow. I'm tapped out now though lol

Nice! Elliot helped me with my wheels also. Car looks barely dropped with the Eibachs. Think it's settled all the way in yet? I know they are a very subtle drop but wow, that's subtle.

Yeah I believe its fully settled now. The Fe3 struts raise the car a little more than the Fe2's and my poly strut mounts raise it a little. I kinda wish I went with the H&R springs but I like it for now. It still rides smooth.

19x8.5 ET 35 19x9.5 ET43. I got them from Elliot at ModBargains.

One last question, can you give some details on how you did the plasti-dip, which i'm assuming you used on the door trip, handles, and grilles, I want to do that, but I want to do it right.

My taping and rattle can skills are about an 8/10

Looks good man. Really like the yellow on black. Did g8Pnsher help you with the Bathurst stripes or make them for you?
