Hey bro,

I'm not feeling the second style for the GSS stickers... The only pic I've seen of the original was more like the first ones, with the lettering taking up the full height of the stripe, and in a more agressive font.

It's one of those things. do you want the graphics to 'tone down' the feel of the car, or accentuate it? for me the rounded font tends to soften the attitude a bit, which may well work if that's what you're going for.

Wondering too if you'd be willing to give up some tech details on your power steering conversion? I'm about to attempt the same thing, so if you're willing to, it'd be great to get some more details and any tech info on getting the ackerman angles right and all that...

Not sure how it'd look in some other color and size, 5/10 for this GSS sticker.

What a beauty man! Really unique car! And with the GSS... ummm you better off looking at other fonts, mix and match them and post some pics. We'll definitely help you out.

^ Thank you and no there no plans for spoiler at the moment. I was thinking about a small lip on the deck lid at one point but couldn’t come up with anything suitable.

checked it out. i give it :tu: :tu:

What did you do for the gauges? I didn't see any info on them after mentioned trying to save the dash, just curious.

I like how you did the hood pins, i hate seeing them pop out of the hood.

Do you have any better pics of the front lip, if you don't mind? I'm looking for ideas.

As much as I love chrome/stainless, I understand the need for painting all the trim. It pulls it off quite well though, especially with the stripes.

Lastly, what are the chances you still have the stock seats you had reupholstered? :)

Thank you for appreciating my car :tu:

I will post some better pictures for the front lip little later.
Original dash was hacked to death to fit Aristo guage cluster while I was on vacation as you can imagine I was very disappointed but there is no turning back now. I have bought a IS350 cluster that will be going in there at some point.

I tried to give away engine and front seats but no one wanted it to out they went in to the trash bin :td:

That's a bummer it got hacked up, and that the seats went in the trash :cry:
I've decided to keep mine mostly original for now, then when i get back to the states, get it on a rotisserie and give it a full make over.

I'd appreciate the pics when you get a chance.

good luck with the rest of it. :tu:
