On a serious note, darko, your car looks quite clean and the wheels are a bit unusual but, I think, they look nice.

Nikon D90 and either the nikkor 85mm f/1.4D or the sigma 10-20 (for rig shots).

Cheers, great work.
Keep it up.

EDIT: Did you buy the rig and if so - how much did it set you back approximately?

Malibu - you need some black-out grills stat!! But I really like the hood, in that pic you can't even tell it's CF. I wouldn't paint until you start to think it's getting old/boring and want to switch it up!

Exactly!. That's why I'm not painting it. You can't tell it's CF until your up really close to it. I want to leave my grill chrome because my rims have a chrome lip and so does my window trim. I also have chrome and black roundels on my rims, hood and trunk. So blacking out the front wouldn't be exactly a good idea for me hehe.
