Thanks for the comments everyone!

For those wanting to know about the treatment on the tails, it's a simple matte clear coat. Any body shop can do this for you.

Judd, meet my driveway:

This is the only reason my car isn't slammed. Until I move, the H&R's will have to do...

This car is by no means done. This is definitely 'to be continued...'

I'm one step ahead of you - reflectors were done with the tails!

There seems to be some confusion as to my suspension. What you're looking at are regular, out-of-the-box H&R Sport Springs. I haven't gone coilover... yet.

The exhaust tips I knew would be a polarizing element - some would love it, some would hate it. That's okay, because I really like the way they look. It was actually a spur-of-the-moment thing - Joe Z found these while we were at PTB, and next thing you know I'm test fitting them on my car. I still can't believe they fit! The rest of my exhaust is the same Tanabe axle-back system I've had for 3 years now.

Thanks again for the comments everyone!

In true javyLSU style, I installed the Brembos myself (with some help from brake-pumper extraordinaire Joe Z... ) DIY baby!

The rotors come with a protective zinc coating that gives them a gold look:

Even the styrofoam box that the calipers come in is cool...

Man, I'm not normally a fan of the modded look on our cars, but I have to say yours really looks good. Nice pics too.

Great mods, and even greater photography!! You did a EXCELLENT job of capturing the matte finish on the tailights.

The reverse lights might look a bit different because I have a lot stuffed in there... Polarg super-white reverse bulbs and the rear part of my strobe lights...
