Got two more mods done to the car, though they’re almost purely cosmetic...

I wanted to do an exhaust exit bezel. I drew my inspiration from the import cars that would have a shiny stainless plate right above the exhaust tip, usually etched with the brand exhaust they’re running (HKS, Tomei, etc.). I cut out a piece of flashing and hand etched it with the graphic from the Thrush muffler line (the duck or whatever it is), screwed it to the bumper cover, and it covers the ill-cut exhaust exit hole

I also finally wrapped my wheel skirts in CF vinyl like I had been wanting. I also bought a length of the edge trim that’s supposed to go on the edge of doors to protect the paint, and wrapped the outer edge of the wheel skirts in it to hide the edge of the coroplast... I think it looks great!
