Default New Look

I removed my BSM, Carbon Fiber side skirts, Grand Sport stripes, and my custom made fender badges. I think it has a much cleaner look.

Car looks great. How about posting a pic though when the side skirts were on it.

Looks cleaner, although I think the side skirts would not have been that noticeable and would have carried the line from the front splitter.

The car has the clean look BUT FOR, IMHO, the aftermarket wing.

The skirts got to be a pain in the *** because they make it hard to get out of the car. At 52 years old, i have to put my feet kind of far out to avoid hitting them. My only other option was to raise the car, and that wasn't gonna happen!

I agree, the skirts would still look nice in my opinion but removing the other things was a plus in my opinion... either way it still looks good

Thanks, I appreciate it. I guess I was just getting bored with it and needed a change.

Looks good! Changing things up a little is always cheaper than buying a new car.
