PERFECT, told you those notches would look good. somehow i feel the bumper mesh could have been the same type as the mesh in between the headlamps.i guess this mesh will look good after the paintjob.

This is how it may look like with black mesh:

Thanks BBS !!
The grill had still to be painted when I took this picture. Yes it is going to be black.


Cheers

The car was in it's "final stages" of finish today !! The black grill looks uber cool to me . The final finish shall hopefully happen tommorow, the pictures shall be posted after that !!

Quite honestly the car looks good (not that it did not earlier) but the shot of "BOTOX" has helped

Just waiting to get it a "newer heart" now !!!!!



Cheers

Where are the angel eyes? A Lancer without angel eyes and clear-lens tail-lamps is incomplete. Doesn't the fog-lamp look oversized? If you install angel-eyes, you might as well skip fog lamps as the angel-eyes steal all the attention.

sagarji, ricky actually had the angel eyes headlights on his car earlier but he didnt like the reduced visibility with those, and preferred to go with the stock ones. Apparently he isnta fan of the fancy tail lamps either! The car is looking hot with the evo bumper for sure.

Been there - done that !! Like Arush said the angel eye headlamps were removed coz of insufficient light.

As for the "oversized" fog lamps !! Well these are how they came on the EVO 4 from the factory. They are more driving lights & less fog lamps.

I am happy the way the car looks




Cheers

Nice car, looks with better with the new front.

A personal opinion of mine would be to retain the same mesh size for uniformity but then again its your personal choice for your car and you have mentioned in an earlier post that you preferred this as it conceals all behind it.

Anyway, do post the final pics

The Car Look Super. Congrats Ricky, A complete NO NO to Angel Eyes, It will spoil the look. It should like the EVO4 only.

Ricky's Tail lamps look good with the scheme of paintjob. The smokked lamps blend perfectly, The LEDs or the Round ones will stand out.

@Ricky: Any plans for a spoiler, Somehow I feel it needs one, Just my opinion.

I agree on the same size mesh for the whole front, but the top part could not take the fine mesh due to structural issues. Therefore went for the two different sizes.

In real it looks nice, if it does not one can always change it, when the engine work starts

Will post pictures after the job is complete !!


@m4ugr8

Spoiler not in the scheme of things right now !!





Cheers

one really nice looking car. love the front bumper. the grill part looks very aggressive. but why does it look as if the bottom of the front bumper is curved upwards??
