You obviously cant see how the all black bumper matches the all black trim on the doors and the chrome on the windows matches the chrome on the black trim on the rear bumper..
I bet you dont like the paint match of the doors and the trunk to the rest of the car

please dont, but if you create an account in Photobucket or Flickr, you can upload pics there and they will give you a link and you just copy and paste that into the thread and they will appear full size in the thread, not as attachments

Thanks for the Heads Up ! I'm proud of the way I hooked up the car. Not to many women would be into this. Plus its an expensive Hobbie/Habbit,lol. I think its fun riding around and turning heads. The Pictures dont do it justice, I know. I'm Proud of The Princess. Thanks alot tho. Do you know how to get the pictures enlarged in upload. Do I need to change format ?
