yup....probably the reason is its not from IND or any big names we're used on buying it from....but DIY without professional skills sometimes gives a personal touch on my own car.....tnx for the honest opinion

I like it, but I prefer the gold. In either case, nice work.

I know one thing... those CF gills look amazing! You must have gotten an awesome deal on those... lol

I think the dark tint would look better but the red is unique.
