Powder coated RED 359M and GTS5 bumper.

I finally got time to put on my summer set, Red Powder coated 359M wheels with AD08 and Project Kics R40. Getting ready for Track day on April 7th, AutoX on April 6th. I wrapped the gills and hood vent to orange to test some new color(was red), I don't really like the Orange on SSII car, what you guys think?

looks good with that bumper, I personally like it a lot, and props for you being the first to power coat those rims in red, nonetheless they look good.

Scrap the orange and this might be bearable.

For a track set up the wheels work but I'm personally not feeling the rest of it. I think the bumper plays better on a darker car......this is total opposite of the carbon fiber roof which looks better on the lighter colors.......Phil

The gap from the hood to the kidney grill is gigantic, woah.
