Quick pic of the new stripes with the car cleaned up

I'm really glad I decided to add the stripe. I think it makes the car stand out and I think the white over Ruby Red really looks good. Here's a quick pic I took after washing it today. Let me know what you guys think!



It took about two hours to get it cleaned up; not too bad but the air compressor really helps. I did everything ( wheels, tires, wheel wells, conditioned seats, vacuum, dash, engine, engine bay, trunk, axle back etc. Now it's just a waiting game for my X4 to get here so I can put my steeda CAI on, which should be on Tuesday. No wax this time but it was waxed last week.

Thanks guys.

Looks outstanding. I did a complete polish and seal spending a few hours a day for the last four days. After 3 years I was starting to get a few fine scratches. Not bad as I always use care when washing. I think you definitely made a good choice on the stripe.

Thank you sir. I may clay bar/sealant/wax next weekend just because it's never been clay barred before, but I'm extremely happy with the looks of it. It's so clean, I don't want to pull it out of the garage. Haha

I learned the hard way to use care when washing. I now use two buckets with grit guards, gas power washer with foam cannon, proper wash mits, microfiber drying towels/air compressor and all professional grade chemicals from chemicalguys.com. I learned the hard way on my black 2012 GT. Won't make that same mistake twice. The black one looked good in the garage but as soon as I pulled it out, it looked horrible (to me).


Post up some pics of yours all detailed!

Looking Good!!! It's always great to see something different out there. Do you have any pictures of the rear end you can post up? What's next on the build list for her aside from the Tuner and CAI?

Thanks! Here's a pic of the back:



Does the mod list really ever end? Haha. I think next up is the MGW shifter then I need to decide on suspension. Then from there, who knows.

Very nice, I've been thinking of adding either white Le Mans stripes or the super snake stripes like yours to my grabber blue GT. Did you add the stripes yourself? What kit did you use?
