@RaptorReed: no idea from which model the shop copied that from, but it's fabricated from fiberglass...

I like it, very nice tidy car.
Tinting windscreens is considered very naughty over here, it does look tough though :tu:

I think it's actually illegal here. the most you're supposed to be able to tint is the upper portion of the windshield...
and then you've got the oldschool crews who hate having any type of tint in the windows!

but it's just too bloody hot here. hehe :P

As soon as I saw it with the gold meshies and the chin spoiler I was like :shock: and then I saw the 4G63 and I was in love. Awesome car you have there. Any more pictures of it with the meshies?
