The matte finish on the lip looks great with your car color. My vote is for a matte clear if you're going to clear the lip

I just sent the link to W/// for the full set for him to pick and choose what to post on his build thread. But I couldn't help but post one of the 'boring' ones

Here's the rest! Thanks again ADM5!









Not much else to do on this car. Maintenance is completely up to date. Will take rear bumper off and get them repainted as they look kind of rough, and will then re-install Arkym diffuser. It also needs to be detailed too.

It definitely looks good in matte. He should keep it that way for sure. Really good repair job especially seeing what he had to start with...

It's a hotly debated topic Sal haha. I think this is one of the few colors that can pull off the OEM grill

Haha I got a secret to tell you. That's actually 5 coats of Plasti dip you are looking at
I was kind of so-so about the finish until we test fitted them on the car. Was thinking of putting a coat of glossifier on top but I got too impatient and the matte finish provides a cool contrast. Besides, I figured I DIY'ed the entire repair myself, might as well finish it completely. And in case I scrape the hell out of it and damage it, I can DIY everything myself again.

Thanks for the kind words guys!

Holding up amazing! Thought about refinishing them in Porsche GT3RS grey, but decided to hold off because the face is still looking great. I'm still actually on the same set of PSS, still plenty of meat left.

Very, very nice job. Ever consider no tint or lighter tint to help see the interior and give a more clean look?
