Right on. I already had the Seibon hood and didn't want the look of different weaves or color with another brand. I heard the horror stories and didn't quite believe it could be as bad as people were saying, and that I possessed the skill to fit them properly. I was wrong on both accounts :doh:
Makes sense to stick with the same company for sure. Yeah definitely would suck to pay that kind of money for them not to fit and need modifications.

First part installed for 2021! Acuity shifter cable bushings. Little bit of a pain to install but went smooth. Shifter feels more stiff, looking forward to driving the car in the spring.

On a side note, I have decided to put my CF fenders up for sale. It was a impulse buy back in November and I have since decided to go a different route with my car. DM me if you're interested in them, will ship at buyers expense.

Finally got around to doing the paint correction and ceramic coat! Super happy with the finished product considering this was my first time doing this. Can't wait until I can drive the car again, hopefully by mid April weather will be warmer and salt will be off the roads :)

Not much for updates, haven't bought any new parts for EvilR lately. Been working on the ITR just got the tires mounted today, used the CTR to haul them. So much room in these rigs!!! Love it.

Car is dirty I know, but weather here is terrible no point to wash it.

Since it's Thursday I wanted to post a throwback picture of when I received my CTR Back in 2019. Most people would never buy something in this condition but for me I seen the end result right from the beginning. Always look at the positive in life.

The car has been nothing but amazing and I am truly happy I never gave up on this build. #throwbackthursday
