A little more carbon fiber recently added to the beast. It's definitely a difference compared to the boring black plastic oem cover.

Looks sweet and sounds great! How much do you think you spent to have those fabbed? Do the tips get hot enough to melt the rear skirt? I believe the RR Racing Bazooka tips are dual walled...

I guess these can count as "mods" - my Joe-Z exhaust needed some rejuvenating after two years of service, so I decided to clean up the rear section. 400 was the lowest sandpaper grit I had on hand, so the piping isn't quite mirror finish, but enough for my liking.

After:





Progress Shots:









While down there, I decided to fix some minor surface rust on the subframe.

After:



My OCD commands that I refinish the rear diff next in a few weeks' time.
