Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
I like everything except the sprayed tails, the vent visors and the faded yellowed fender side markers, other than that looks much better than when you bought it, LOVE the exhaust work, must sound extremely mean.

You gonna do your front windows tinted too? Would make the look more seamlessly black IMO

You're heading in the right direction in modings. I do agree with Ricky on the blk out taillights though. The clear/wht signal lenses stand out too much.
Ricky, don't hate on the window visors. I got them too

Looks good!!

That's a lot of good stuff done in 2 months. Have you decided on what performance software you will be installing?
