Thats a nice job there dude. But as navin had put it before, i really need to see the snaps in bright sun light. I like the contrast the "matt" is putting on the shiny taillamps and the other glass/plastic parts.

and yes, amazing mags.. Can we have more details on those? make,size..

and what Wax do you use on the paint??
