Lookin good. I for one am not a fan of changing the roundels, but to each his own. I think a black grille, some black shadow line trim and ditching those from amber side markers would give the car just what it needs.

I call this the before picture. I have had zero time to detail her because I have been working out and SES, nasty oem headlights and a whistle. I have owned her for about 4 weeks now. Be gentle it was love at first sight $-). Paid $6k has 100k on her.
