    Not sure what part of CO you're in, but I detail in Broomfield on nights and weekends. PM me if you're interested.

    Car looks great, looks like you went with Michelin Super Sports too - same tires as me, and they are incredible.

    Those pics are awesome! Wheels and tires look great on your car as well.

    I third the tires. Previous owner bought Michelin Pilot Super Sports only a couple thousand miles before he got rid of his car! Now I get to enjoy them. Best tires I've ever been on.

    Yeah always went Michelin on my Ducati because they were the best. I'm sold on their car tires as well now.

    I recommend removing your plate and giving it a nice crease - looks less like you ran into something and more like you did it on purpose.

    What do you guys think of a layer of light tint over the whole tails? Sometimes I feel the red vinyl pops too much

    I think it looks fine how it is. I fear a tinted overlay may make the vinyl look purple, but that's just my uneducated opinion.

    Gotta say I'm amazed no one has commented on Tex's fender gap!
