Graveyard Photoshoot

Visited some ancestors' gravesites this weekend and thought it a unique opportunity to capture Darkshadow in a new environment... I think the autumn colors contrasted nicely with her Dark Graphite Metallic II paint, 15% tints, and Matte Black wheels.

I just hope @TheBlackGT approves Click image for larger version

Your wish has been granted

The tints look great, and the background colors are lovely. Roofline looks real sleek here, good job J

Any plans on reflector deletes?

Various shops like IND sell them. I however used 3M Gloss Black Vinyl, since its a near-perfect match to my BSM.
