Really sharp. That's impressive, Chris.

Gotta admit. I was cringing when I heard you putting gold vinyl pinstripes on the silver paint.....but it actually came out looking really good! I dig the subtle-ness of it.

All said and done the entire car came out looking fantastic!!!!! Great job

the gold stripes are what it originally came with. and chris being chris cant just say fuck it and put whatever he wants on it, despite how much he hates it. thats why we love him.

Ha. I was really worried about the idea of gold stripes too, but I'm really happy with how subtle they turned out. I actually wrestled with the decision and am reasonably pleased with the outcome. What I did know is that the car looked kinda funny with the front spoiler and nothing on it.

Thanks!

This past weekend, I drove to San Diego to participate in the San Diego chapter Clean Car Contest held Sunday morning. I entered in the "Clean" category having done absolutely nothing to the car until I arrived in San Diego at 8:30am on Saturday. Worked on it all day, but this is an event the participants spend weeks preparing for, so I was behind the 8 ball going in. Didn't win anything, but the car looked great, and was very clean save for a couple areas that had grease and some dirt around my seatbelt bolts, which just so happened to be areas judged. There wasn't even a single deduction for the exterior. 96/100 isn't bad for the first time ever entering one of these. I was told I was .5 off of third place, which was taken by a 2012 M3 with 6600 miles.

Right now, my car is in Costa Mesa, so I'll be flying back to CA on Friday (05/31) to prepare for another show in Huntington Beach on 06/02.

Here's a picture that a friend took right around "rags down" on Sunday. I had a camera, yet didn't use it a single time.
