Beautiful! Very tasteful

All you need is to wrap or paint the chrome window trim and you're set!

Looks really good, man. How are you liking those Breytons so far? I'm considering the silver ones and I think they look fantastic. What size tires are you running?
Definitely shadowline that window trim!

Can you provide some info on the quad set up. What's involve running the pipe between the battery and spare wheel well. Single exhaust or dual? I heard you need to have some hammer time yeah?

its single all the way to the muffler which is like halfway to the end like middle and then it goes to a y pipe which are the quads if that makes sense. and paid some exhaust shop to do it, it wasnt to complicated actually

JK... Well, nobody else played devil's advocate here, so I figured I should chime in...

Enjoy your car, and take care of her!
