Been throwing the idea of what color to go to for a while. I was Alpine white, but fell in love with this when I saw it. Finished her up a few hours ago. Gonna take her out with my SLR later and get some legit shots.

My god that is beautiful! Looks like a frozen mineral white.

Is your trunk unpainted? I wouldn't have left it like that.

That is EXACTLY the color I will eventually do on mine (i have AW now). It just shows the lines of the car so well! Outstanding job! Can't wait to see better pics.

Unfortunately the resin wouldn't take the adhesive of the vinyl. Im gonna have to shoot clear on the trunk and then wrap it later down the road.

Looks amazing, are those te37's 19''? I was wondering what my set would look like and I must say I like them!

What size tires are you runing? I'm guessing the wheels are 9.5 f and 10.5 r

You beat me to it.. This was the color I just picked out.

Back to the drawing board.

Can you take a picture with your hood open to see the difference?

Thanks.

I'll snap a pic. It may not seem like it, but the difference is pretty huge. Here is a pic mid wrap. You can see the contrast between Alpine white and Satin pearl. In the sun.... mother of God its beautiful!
