    Nothing special, just have some commuter pals and finally found the perfect sunshade

    Deleted the red pinstripe along the bottom of the car by putting some 1/4" 3D carbon fiber vinyl over it. Why haven't I done this sooner?

    Got my Swift Springs powder coated in red to match the calipers.
    Now I just need it to get above 30 degrees to put them on.

    Getting ready to start installing my Auto Interior Technic Alcantara steering wheel wrap. My daughter just did her 8th Gen SI wheel and it turned out great! This is her car with it installed and mine just fitting it up.

    That’s awesome. Do you have a link to this fine vinyl?

    Nice touch. Tape over instead of removing OEM red stripe is better in case one wishes to return to stock look or for resale.

    I got it from here.

    Yep, that was my thought if I ever wanted to revert back to stock.

    Thank you, order placed. Are there any tips to share for the install? My car has is ceramic coated so hopefully it will stick, heh.

    Exactly this! My reasoning as well.

    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.
