I was wondering, now that your car is moving towards a shaved look, what with the bumpers gone and the mild smoothing modifications you've done, have you considered going down the retrotech path? I think your car in something like a dark grey/ gun metal or black from perhaps a late model mercedes with gun metal powder coated rims would look amazing.

With that fat V8 sound and the cage slightly visible would look amazingly tough in a black car.

Car looks fantastic
Thanks! Here's the look (well, with shaved bumpers, vents, and the wheels wont have the polished lip) or paint scheme I put together and plan to go with. The wheels will be black, top part of car black ,and the lower half will be a charcol / gun metal metallic grey. Should look and will sound tough. I'll photoshop another pic with the updated wheels and I'll shave the bumpers and whatnot once I get the chance. But this is the general look.
