On the sunvisors: Are those stickers or heat transfer vinyl, because they kinda look like they have an indentation on the border.

Thanks,
I went to eyedentity graphics in Camarillo: http://www.eyedentitygfx.com/
There are other places that will take off your chrome and wrap it (which in my opinion is way better), though this place just wraps it while on the vehicle. I went this route just because I wanted to save a few bucks because taking it all off and wrapping it costs like 5x. I would rather save the money for a Joe-z exhaust or something else as it actually came out GREAT...

**They are stickers and I could have gone with another 1/16 of an inch bigger as the indentation is probably just the slight view of the OEM airbag sticker...you can tell from the pictures, but it isn't that bad. The stickers I ordered were the exact size, but my hand wasn't that steady to get them perfect. haha. I hunted around and found Matt over at MotoGFX (www.motogfx.com) and had him make me some custom logos for my visor to cover up those airbag logos. I did my homework about the different types of adhesive and I agree 3M is the best out there for wrapping a car but pricey for just the visor, so I went with ORACAL adhesive (and if/when you talk with Matt, he knows his stuff).

Awesome car! All your mods are very nicely done!

For your JDM fog lights, are you using a separate on/off switch or did you use OEM switch/relay configuration?

Nice mods! I am also curious about the fogs. I am considering the OEM stalk setup.

I never really paid attention to the fog light area grills on the GS but man are they cheap covers. I wish they had gone with the same type of grill as the center grill. It makes me want to install fog lights just to get rid of those covers.

Default Amazing job

I love eliminating the chrome. It would be great if people added pictures of how they achieved that goal.
