Seriously! I bet it's a pain... But Alpine White with a white joey mod (maybe flat grey - could be too much white) and some custom interior work would be amazing. Once I get my stance dialed in (probs a year out... ) I'll start work on the colour change.

Yeah, I've already got the paint to convert my joey mod to a medium gray. That'll be next on the list behind wrapping the scoop and front bumper. They had multiple gray primer colors, but I ended up getting one a little darker. If it doesn't work out I'll go even lighter.

keep it up man! It looks like it'll be a fun project. You mentioned some bubbles on the hood... Is this a temporary change or do you plan on going back after more experience and fixing the problem areas?

Bubbles are easy to fix, they're just time consuming. I expect by the time I'm done with the rest of the car though I'll want to go back and rewrap the hood regardless.

Are you going to "re-wrap" it or double wrap it? If you got all the bubbles out, a double wrap would be good for road debris.

I have no idea, but I hope so. They also have it with a polished lip, but I'm just not sure it would look right.

Edit: Checkmate2006's don't have any lettering on them, so either they only show it on the pictures, it's vinyl, or he painted his.
