    T0RQUE'S '11 Lightning Red Sedan Build Thread

    So I am not feeling the wheels.. I guess just too subtle for my taste.. So I plan to change things up a bit while the car is getting painted..

    Different wheel color options:

    Bronze
    Titanium chrome
    Hyper black
    Hyper silver
    Plain gold
    Plain gold/polished lip

    What do you think?

    Gold looks great on red.

    Is the car staying red?

    Sorry if I missed it in a previous post, but why are you getting the car re-painted? Did something happen to it?

    I had the car for about 30 minutes, I was pulling out of the dealership parking lot and was behind a truck that must of just come over the siskiyous (a pass with high elevation on i5) he had probably 8-12" of snow on his roof/canopy and a chunk had fallen off. I had no place to go but over it and I didn't think it'd be that big of a deal anyway.. Well shattered the front lip and cracked the front bumper really good. The passenger a pillar had some previous damage but it was just a chip in the paint.

    That sucks. On the bright side, these really need an extra layer of good paint on the bumper anyway.

    Ahh my bad, I had thought they were from China... My opinion of them has changed :P

    I wasn't a fan of looking under the car and seeing nothing.. It didn't look right. Maybe it's just me but those big dual canisters under the bumper and big piping look fantastic compared to what I had.
