Default The Grond Chronicles : The Return of the (Rice) King [Dialup, this will leave a mark]

OK. So I've been very, very good for quite a while - only performance mods, or tasteful or functional mods, none of my usual cheap and tacky mods (well, just a couple) - but by and large, I've been on the Straight and Narrow...

Well, The Rice King has returned - and with a bang!

6 coats of base, 6 coats of colour and 6 coats of clear later...

....and voila! Pure 100% Uncle Ben's

I will let the pictures tell the story, I'm outta here.....

I don't see the rice on this one Stephen....

(unless you etch "kompressor" on the calipers)

besides, coilovers exempt the entire wheel well from rice...

Well it isn't for me, but you could have done alot worst, I was thinking lime green when you said rice.

I vote this to be a "bling" mod elevating your "Pimp status" more than a "rice" mod falsly raising your performance.

That's my $.02. But I must admit, as usual, it is unique.

I'm liking the calipers, but I gotta ask you this... do you spend more time:

1) modding the car, or
2) thinking up funny lines to scare off 56K modem users?!?

lol!

Nice effect.

Any thoughts on painting Grond to match? Is this just the beginning?
