You can see the stretch there, on the rim against the wall. I like it!

Yesss thank you!!! Looks sick as hell hahaha, i agree with the others, tuck your exhaust up a bit more and lower the front as much as you are willing to. I see short struts and coilovers in your near future.

You pulled it off man, im not sure if i like the sun visor though.

I thought of a way I could like the visor...Do a white stripe on the car (maybe two? one wide, one narrow?) and make the stripe continue on the visor, but in red that matches the car. you could have this whole white and red theme going with it. That would make me like the white visor.

if you did that and finished/lowered the front, the look would be complete
