Tinted..

So excited about this little mod. Dropped my car off at Top Of The Line Tint in Lodi, NJ... Decided over the phone to do the shadowline wrap and 25% and picked it up one day later like this:



Have a bunch of stuff I want to get done before Spring... trying to get coils and wheels during March.

I know, I know, I just cant justify the price difference right now since I have my mod funds allocated elsewhere currently

Shop around paint shops. Mine matched the vinyl price
And that was a 3 stage paint job

Thanks guys, and yes... I'm a little worried about the vinyl peeling and turning shitty, but it was more or less a test, if it goes bad in a year, I'll paint, but I definitely love it today!

Next is kw v1's
