e92 w\carbon fiber roof, glossy black grill, rsx, random pictures...canon rebel xti

This was my first real camera. Got it a couple weeks ago and kinda of go the hang of it now.

i tried to take pictures of anything that moved. All picture were taken with 18-55mm len that came with the camera.

Any photographers out there that can give me some pointer?please do.

The rsx is my girlfriend's. Base model with shaved handles. I'm proud to say i did all the work on her car and mine.

Get some painted reflectors on there, and paint the sharkfin!
Both cars look good, nice photo skills too. I dig the first head-on shot.

So... like Afro said, is it real CF?

Yes u have to remove the fins to install it the right way. I Did it a different way though, which required a dremel but did not have to remove the fin. I did get the cover but it didn't fit. Apparently they used a shark fin from overseas for a mold. Seem like US fin are a little bigger than other parts of the world.

Haven't had time to install it yet. It has been too cold. I was afraid i might crack the fiberglass in the freezing temps. Fiberglass didn't seem to flex much in 32 degree weather. I did a test fitting and everthing seems good though.

Oh I see. I thought it was a full custom carbon fiber roof. Paint your rims Matt Black.

The grills are not cf. I used glossy black vinyl to wrap the chrome surroundings. No more chipping grills saved myself $100.

If anyone need some black vinyl for their grill... PM me... $5 for enough vinyl to cover there grills + extra for a practic run.

It's probably a little thicker than a cd. Not the CD case but the CD itself. less than 2lbs i would say.

How hard is it to install the roof? does it have bumps and humps when you try to align it?
