    cbr1.jpg cbr2.jpg cbr4.jpg yup :) and i think it turned out great! i know alot of you die hards might think its awful.
    i love it cuz i can change the color at any time, or peel it off and go back orange, till then my paint is 100% protected :)
    not 100% on copper wheels, but i dont like the wheels at a whole either.

    Love it hate it? hyper black graphite, with copper alloy wheels.

    Love the color change, I think different wheels (the right wheels) will make it look amazing! I would also recommend dropping the ride height to get rid of that 4x4 look.

    ya ive thought about the ride height alot, i just put a new head unit in a nice sub in the trunk and speakers are on the way. im out of wife allowance for a while, so maybe next year i wanna try jumpin to 18 inch wheels then ill change the ride height and stuff. :) pumped you like it. not many people do by the pictures but in person it's pretty crazy for 500USD worth of dip. ill keep it this color for a year or two then maybe swap something fun like grabber blue.

    I think it looks good man, I would skip on the heavy 18's for now and just pick up a set of used springs. Less than a couple hundred bucks....then of course an alignment and enjoy! IMHO factory cobra wheels would look great.... most over the torque thrust

    hmm ill keep my eye out for some used springs. im worried about being low with headers and canadian roads:rolleyes:
    i love the gt500 style of wheels. but new wheels are expensive. ill have to wait till next year for that.

    been thinking about doing something like this with mine. the clear coat is peeling/oxidizing in places, and i'm not positioned to paint it right now.

    might try to fix the bad spots in the clear for now, though.

    I think it looks great and you won't see too many looking like that. I've seen some exotic's running around with wraps and paint jobs that look similar to that color. Agree on the wheels, something with gun metal centers would look bad ass.

    Ok gotcha. I think a polished wheel would look good.

    those r not bad, i'm not a really bolt kinda guy. or at least i haven't found one that i like. when they are covered in bolts or nuts kills the look for me.

    Wait one minute you dipped a CO vert? I don’t get that if it was ZY or black I could see it. But that’s just me.

    well first off its paint protection as a number one. second i like CO its a cool color, but orange even though its rare in terminator terms is not my fav color. this car will probably see a few different colors before it goes back to orange. TBO i would of dipped it no matter what color it was.
