@Cyrus.. here is my work.... absolutely nothing compared to that of yours

But the best part of my mods is that none of them is permanent.... all are reversible !

This is my post........

I basically own to Lancer Evos... an EVO VII and an EVO VIII...

While my Evo VII had a WRC replica look.... the Evo 8 look with stock exteriors felt quite dull... So I decided to put on some visual appeal....

Please excuse me for poor photo quality

Thus, the headlamps got eyelids treatment and a Mitsubishi sticker on the windshield...


The front doors got Michelin, HKS and Fidanza stickers...


Sparco mudflaps and Ralliart Decal on the rear windhield



Last but not the least... neon lights below the front grille...


* Oops, I forgot to tell that it's a 1:36 scale model..

No, the stickers are put on by me. Yes, they can be made that small. Just copy an image from the internet into Microsoft Word (or any other appropriate program like MS Paint) and reduce its size as much as possible. And your job is done !

I used two green LEDs to create neon lights !
