so you have build date of 3/15 on the plate, but a color that wasn't available in 2015 and a blurry pic of what looks like 10th anniversary badge added on the door card... Would you mind explaining the car? Very cool combo and interesting, but conclusions can be drawn that the whole car was repainted at some point instead of being genuine original, or that it was 10th anniversary conversion, etc. etc.

Sure I wanted a RCF with Carbon package TVD and Mark Levinson. I found on about four hours away private seller so picked it up on a Saturday then dropped it off at my shop that Monday. Here is the process. It took them two weeks start to finish.

Thanks it turned out great. I wasnt crazy about the blue seats anyway. The goal was to appear factory and other then the exhaust tips not being 2019 I think we did.

Wouldn't it have been cheaper to get the 50th and just swap out the seats?

Yeah Ive used this shop for years and have a great relationship with the shop manager etc. I paid more then a wrap but less then 15k. They do very high end work local sports stars and SEMA builds etc.
