    Boost. It does a body good.

    Plenty of clearance.

    Another teaser. Notice something missing?

    Ok...it's time to stop shooting the breeze and start shooting paint. Here are some progress pictures to get things rolling.

    The color...Designo Magno Alanite Grey from AMG. It is a matte pearl silver that you might have seen in a lot of their press pictures lately. In person, it is absolutely INSANE. It is a matte finish that has a ton of pearl and course flake in it which makes it really deep looking. I only hope I can really capture how incredible it looks in person through a lens.

    Classic Livery of Atlanta (also known as WagenWerks) is doing the collision repair and paint. They do a lot of really high end/high profile cars locally but are an incredible, down to earth shop. They are awesome to work with and hit the track on the weekends. I really couldn't ask for any better locally.

    Yesterday before masking started. It really is amazing how thin the paint is on our cars. No wonder it flakes off if you even look at it wrong.

    How tough was it for them to remove that and smooth it out? I've been wanting to do that since I got the car!

    It wasn't too bad for them to do it. They basically have to cut out the mount then rebuild the gap and sand everything.

    I had the license plate mount shaved.

    That does look great. Did you trim your bumper for the intercooler also?

    I did.

    Here are some more updates.

    The car in in the booth getting rest of the body paint. Since the passenger side was all new, they had to spray the original silver first before the Magno Alanite Grey so it would match the rest of the panels.



    The Magno Alanite Grey going on...







    If you look at the pictures, you can see how much more defined the lines of the car look with the Alanite Grey vs. the stock SSM. It looks pretty crazy in sunlight as there is a ton of color shift due to the really course flake in the paint. The body lines are going to be even more accented than stock and the paint is going to look really deep.
