frankmehta, surely the pics don't do justice to the job done. Please try some pics of the car in a shade. Also, please put some pics where the brake lights as well as reverse lamps & indicators are on, so that we could see how they look after blackening.

Why not change to high-security number plates? Current plates do carry a legacy

Had a chance to meet the car in person - must say it looks exceedingly good. The paint job to my amateur eyes is absolutely stunning.

@ frankmehta - when did you click so many pics? In any case, most are more worthy of the ICE section. Btw, are these from the Omnia or the digicam? They're quite nice.

Default Brilliant

Brilliantly done up car. One of the best esteems ive seen so far. Although i still feel a black paintjob would have looked better ( marginally )!
That starter button is to kill for!! I dont see any mention of its pricing on the excel sheet. Is it available everywhere?
If no i might need a small favour...!

Frank - The paintjob looks cool, the car looks nice but the smoked tail lights look out of place! A new set of normal red lights would do wonders for your cars looks!
