So we should sell WWGD merchandise now? (What would god drive?)

Bill, that tattoo shop is on Washington in South Beach right? I drive by there to see one of my customers a couple of times a month.

BTW, the front clears on a Turbo S are smaller than the regular NB's, don't know where u can get those...
Yeah, those are the ones I saw but I was wondering what's the quality on them. I'll be getting those then. About Turbo S, the fronts are same as rears

The interior of your NBC looks sweet, I want to do some of those touches too sometime. I'm wondering what paint did you use to color your Bernt gauge pod? I don't really dig the look of color matched center panel and other pieces and I'd like everything to look stock. Does anybody know if dealership sells that ruberized paint in cans?

They look OEM and it's the whole assembly, not just the lens, takes a total of like 30 seconds to change per side. FYI, the OEM bulb is clear, in case u want red at nite...

U R correct sir, I still have to re-paint the pod with the rubber paint, didn't know about it when I first painted it...

Great looking and the first one I have seen with a spoiler too. I would be really interested in seeing some more photos of the spoiler perhaps from the side? I am interested in how you came across it and how difficult they are to fit?

Just glues on, I propped a stick under it overnite in the exact horizontal position. I used black caulking that dries flexible, becuz the edge slightly hits against the top when it's down...

Keep that black color shinning like you do-nothing any prettier

That chrome piece around the third brake light looks familiar
