Wow, thanks man. I've been debating on whether or not to put stripes on the front and rear bumpers. First, it's a huge PAIN to do, plus it would make for a custom look. Opinions?

Hey tamatt, How did you like cutting the holes for the Brake bezels? The one side was not that bad but the side with the A/C lines was a pain. I like the black ones you have in. JLT is great and fast on shipping.

I took my front facia off completely when I did it, so it wasn't bad at all. :) I got the black ones because that's what KI3T had in the pilot. They're chrome in the series.
I was very impressed with JLT, thanks for that heads up!
Thanks for all the compliments guys! I've got much more surprises lined up in the pipeline! The exterior should be complete within the next 2 weeks I'm hoping.

I vote for stipes on the bumpers, if you want to be authentic. Also, TAMatt, as to the bezels, they changed them from black to chrome because the actual GT500KR also has chrome bezels. Just food for thought.

But man, your KI3T looks incredible!!

I lowered it with Eibach Sportlines. They lowered the car almost 2". I know it's not the correct suspension but I felt it was a creative change I could live with.
