I actually removed the left hatch stripe to redo it but just cut around badge with razor blade. That one is hard to get right because you have to stretch it around the badge.Silv’$22,
Where did you get the stripes from?
I’d also like to hear about bumper. The tuck under hatch R badge looks good too but seems more challenging, did you leave it on?
I might do the complete opposite, black centered stripes on my red R.
Ramster (interesting name, sheep-rodent hybrid or one that Rams, maybe as in the truck brand?),A lot of people been asking how the CBP Mugen Kit would look on PMM. Here’s just a sneak peak of it, I’ll have the rest of it on by next week. Unfortunately Mugen doesn’t make it in this color that’s why I’ve decided to opt for CBP, I took a gamble on it just to see how it looks with the intention of getting them painted but so far it’s not too bad!
Also added the APR Big Wang! Waiting on a few more things. Will post the final product once I get everything on!

This looks cool, low and angry, is it for show more than function or does it hug road better over 100 now? Help me understand if it’s being unique or faster?
With the giant Wang, you may want to fly over to Central Tractor Supply and get some steel ballast plates to hang on the front to avoid popping wheelies. That’s what we had to do during tractor pulls to keep front wheels down so you could steer a little. The R needs lots of front downforce too, maybe that is improved with the shovel.
How does it do over huge obstacles like a parking lot speed bump? Do you have to go around??? if so, this might a good time for some showy hydraulics to lift the body up and over. iSome lower theirs, this gives the illusion of being lower but probably not, all just not on?
Pplease don’t think I’m judging, I’m jealous having fun that your toy looks better than mine.
Sometimes I just want to roll my R backwards a good ways, put it in nuetral then let off the brakes and let it zoom across the ground by the toy spring.
Your distance may vary, no battery required.
Thanks DrRamster, great info and does my insurance cover this visit?1. Actually Ram is my real name. Ramster is what they call me at the hospital, nickname was given.
2. It looks even lower because I have Sliplo on the front lip for protection. In terms of function or show, I haven’t tested it yet.
3. A little downforce here and there doesn’t hurt. But honestly I just put that on a few days ago, will test it out when I actually drive it.
4. Go at an angle or don’t go at all. Not a daily driver so not worried, also we have decent roads here.
5. There’s no such thing as being judgmental, there’s the truth and there’s constructive criticism. I give both to patients I see.
6. You’ll get there soon! No worries! Gotta pay to
Guys,I did a two pass wipe down with rubbing alcohol along the red stripe area to remove any dirt, oils, or wax before applying it. Since you have the ceramic coating, you'll have to see if it will stick. I don't think you'll have any issues.
The front and sides are way easy to do since they are straight lines but the rear with the curves, I had to use a heat gun to smooth out the ripples in a few spots.
This is definitely a possibility but I was not worried because it would be easy to replace eventually if I ever chose return to the factory red. (Highly unlikely for me, going to own this car indefinitely)Guys,
Concerned about possible long term impact to your lower garnish.. If this CF overlay does stick, with continued thermal cycling, it can disturb deeper layers, accelerating adhesion.
In other words, it’s possible that a year or three from now when you try to take off the CF layer of tape, (it does look nice but red fits my red R) it’s possible that the OEM red stripe embedded below could come off (all/some/none) with it. You can certainly clean up any residue with a variety of products but if you accidentally find a certain chemical combo, they can transfer, almost melt their surfaces and even layers below into each other. Even that would be fixable but quite messy and could result in having to put another layer (red or CF tape) on top. Not trying to be gloomy here but I have some work knowledge of similar events with plastics and adhesives. Best of luck!
