Looks nice. I think if you added smoked rear lights and Breyton side skirts it would look even better.

That and some BBS RS wheels :)

Matt car looks amazing!!!!! Glad to see it came together so nicely. The rims look great, Think the yellow paint actually ties them into the car.. Love it when someone goes for it and pulls the aggressive non stock style off!!!! Let me know when your by my work or in the east end with it, have to see it!!!

Great work, car looks good.

The only thing that can make it look better is a set of side skirts.

Don't do it. The odds of them coming out right are not good. Go with Breytons.

Looks good... I forgot how big the gap is between the rear bumper and the and the tail lights. What year is your car, 1987?

nice work.

I think he might have ment just the skirt part, not the door bottoms.

Lots of people just do the mtech lower sides with the door parts.

Car looks great, if you had asked me prior I would have voted no to yellow, but this shade really works! Again great job.

Beautiful work! I hope it didn't cost a small fortune!

yea.....most of the stuff came off of the forum which drastically reduced the cost of the build.

He showed you the worst install possible of those skirts.

Don't listen to him.
