I also saw a couple post saying you had to remove your seat and unscrew some things holding on the scoops, they are not true. You just take a flathead and a rag, then just pop it out. Pretty easy.

Re: Honest opinions!

If you didnt have the side hash marks i think it would look better. But it does help break up the yellow

Re: Honest opinions!

Way to much going on there. Ditch the black side scoops and choose between hash marks or racing stripes. Both is overkill and doesn't flow together.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if I liked it in the first place. I just get a itch to do something to my car but I'm a broke *** college kid and all my work money goes to bills/groceries. I wanna lower my car but am afraid of it. Kinda stumped on what to do with my car at this point :\

That's why I like messing with plasti dip lol. Cheap.

Re: Honest opinions!

Cut your springs ...easy mod that works great. As for the overall look...to me its overdone...like the transformers edition camaro. Run hash marks or race stripes...but both make it clash.

I am just afraid of getting it off and not getting it back on right lol.

its takes 2 jacks to lift it good enough to take springs out right?

Maybe if you remove all those black stripes and the black scoop and put just a decklid panel in the back it will look meaner. Yellow + black rims and tinted windows is pretty badass. But if you want more black maybe you should but the decklid panel. Idk its your car

^I agree with this one. Lose all the stripes and just do a blackout panel and maybe the Mach1 hood decal. That would flow better with your spoiler and side scoops.

Oh and if you're afraid to tackle the springs, don't risk it unless you can have a buddy with you that has done it before.

I like the hash marks. But get rid of the GT stripes. They are way over done. And fully paint the side scoops black.

The side scoops are fully black and the stripes are there to stay (I literally can't peel them off at this point lol)

I should've take. Other pictures of diff angles. This side that shows looks blacker than the opposite side.
