ive got a new design for the exterior
let me know what you think about the new look
i think im 90% gonna head for this design on the outside
i think it looks sleeker than the EL GT look i had before (and cheaper too...)

Hmmm.... Not bad at all!
I'm not a fan of the Tiger Orange colour for myself, (just personal preference) but the grey body kit looks sharp.

Thanks
i like to be a bit diff sometimes
but the gold/orange pearl on my car doesnt look exactly like that
if you see my other pics ive posted before in "My car now... and how id like it to be... " you would see the actual colour
i just feel i cant go with the plain red, blue, white, silver... only other colour i'd consider is black
i thought of it quickly last nite and think it looks pretty good and i found a whole new EL XR kit for $700 which sounds OK i think?

That looks quite stylish. Factory yet subtle. very good look.

without a rear wing looks great, not over the top

Looks very smooth. Nice balance.

I like the pipes that way. Just a question though, how are you going to get the pipes out the left side without modifying the fuel tank or having the pipe hanging down too far beneath it keeping it out of sight ? If it possible i'd like to know how, as I had thought of running dual pipes a while back but could'nt think of a way around this.

I'm not a big fan of the two tone colours. Maybe a slight shade darker than the car colour would be OK, but hey what ever you think is best I would do, as your the one who will be driving around in it and has to like it.

i only designed the pic the other day but havent thought everything through properly as yet...
so ill have to look into that 1
hopefully there is a way to do it
i should work it out before i go modifying any body kits for quad pipes

but the colour im happy with
my brother was the same... umming and ahging bout the colour
but then my parents liked it and my other friend
so its just up to personal taste
