She's finally home...

The car is truly... amazing. The self restraint required to not break 4k rpm's is ridiculous. It's like putting an 8 ball in front of a crack head and tellin him to sit patiently in the chair. The fact that the car can pull so hard and I'm not even halfway into the powerband just makes you want to rip through the gears that much more.

The hate was immediate on the way home. I had a merc e class, lexus is350 and a mitsu eclipse jump on my tail trying to start shit.

I look forward to working on this car, and I can't wait to see what the end project will accomplish.

Yea yea, no pics, didn't happen. Shitty ass weather in silverdale atm, I'll post pics ASAP.

Thanks All!

A little dirty since I didn't hesitate at all to start breaking in ( roadtrip to portland ) but when I get some time put aside, I'll get to work and detail the car properly.

Anyways, thanks again! Enjoy...















Bone stock atm, but that'll change in due time ...

Jet Black - YES!

Dayum, she looks good.

Put your pics in the Jet Black thread if you get a chance. I find that color is under-represented in the color picture threads.

Will do!

Oh... and... interior.










The comments made about the fox red/blk/blk interior being a orangish-red or brownish-red color is true. Those smart phone pics don't capture the color, and make it the red seem a lot deeper then it actually is. If you're curious about the interior, I'll try and find a way to capture the true color.

Cool interior. I struggled between Jet and Azurite. I would have liked the option of two-tone too. Well, it's available here in Canada but at a high price. I was quoted the same price as for my Individual package (paint and trim). Somehow that doesn't make sense when it's only $300 on top of regular Novillo in the United States...

Yes, I find pictures often seem to make both the red and black 'darker' than in real life. Cool regardless.

Don't waste your time. It's impossible. I spent hours on the net looking at fox red photos before pulling the trigger. I never found one that did the color justice. It always comes out too red or too orange or too brown. You just gotta see the color in person. I have no regrets.

Nothing better than a long road trip in a brand new car.

I'm picking mine up from CA to start my 1,200 mile drive home.

I have ordered a melbourne red and fox/black car but I'm getting near chickening out because I have been unable to see the fox red as of yet. Having it in hand do you folks think it would clash with the paint? I really hate to go through another all black interior but I have been toying with moving to extended black before it is too late.

You've asked for opinions, so here is mine:
Based on my fox red interior and many photos I've seen of Melbourne Red, I think it's a very bad combo. I would not get fox red with any kind of red, orange or brown exterior.
