Sad day... I was in line at Raising Canes getting chicken tendies when it rolled over I think.

Love the gold....I’m only a 2.5er....didn’t come with a hoodliner. My girl howls like chewbacca with a Gatling paint or heat issues evident

Totally going gold.....who knows when you have to signal aircraft or cargo ships..
Aint nothing wrong with a 2.5!

Hard to say for sure since I don't have any before data. The temp here has been anywhere from 30-75* lately. The few times I checked the hood it was never over 105* and that was above the exhaust. A lot of people saying they're running with nothing... But my paint is clean and I spent a lot of time making it that way. I got this stuff from Aliexpress. The ad said it was reflect a gold and astronomically cheaper than DEI products sold in the US. Is it the same thing? Not sure.. But it's on there and seems to be holding up well. I have an unopened package thats 1x1.2 Meters.. I used an xl pizza box to make the templates. If you're interested shoot me a message, will hook it up for $$
Eh whatever. Sounds good to me

Forgetting to update here. Installed led tails. They are "Cherry" Hella LED for right hand traffic, left hand drive, with rear fog(in left lamp). These are the part numbers. I got the plugs from Aliexpress(sans corona) for about $22.

2TZ010409-141, 2SA010409-131, 2SD010408-071, 2SD010408-081... I cross referenced these numbers with VW lights off another site :)

I also used this opportunity to use some glaze and clean up the paint beneath the lamps. I wasn't able to get it with my polisher when I did the Kamikaze coating. I hit it with some overcoat to hopefully reduce dirt build up in the future.
