IND + Ericsson + Space Grey = :)

Like the title says, i'm a very happy IND customer. That says quite a bit as well. I'm not what you'd call an "impulse" buyer. So i had a TON of questions before i decided to purchase this bootlid. It was getting really hard to read the PM because of all the back and forth. Nate was super about getting back to me promptly and answering all my questions. IND was willing to cater to just about anything i wanted with regards to prep, paint, shipping, etc...

And that was all before i decided to purchase the bootlid. Once i did, i got an email every time that bootlid moved. I got an email at every stage of shipping. I got an email, with pics, when it was received. I got emails with pics at every stage of prep and paint. 3 days after the last paint up date the bootlid was in my hands. They use a great freight company and packaged the bootlid very well.

Not only do i have nothing to complain about, but i have no reservation to recommend Nate and IND to anyone!!

on to the pics...

I put this lid on myself which was a bit tricky, mainly installing the plate lights. Everything else went very smoothly. I haven't made any adjustments at all. As you can see it's just a tad high on the driver's side. So when i get around to it, i know that it'll line up perfectly.

I have a couple more pics to add later....

No, thank you Nate!

i tried to do these pics at various angles, not just from the rear focusing on the boot lid. I think when you get past the change of the lid and look at the car as a whole it comes together.

The lowering came from a company new to suspension called photoshop. But when the coilovers get here it'll be close to that. not quite as low though.

LOL, I was gonna ask about that. It looks like a KW v3 drop, is that what you're planning to get? Trunk is sexy, and the car is sick overall, keep it clean!
