Wow! That's a bit more work than my capability as I'm not an auto body painter. I don't have an airbrush, thinner, etc. But you grill looks great so I may reach out to my buddy with an airbrush gun and see if he'll accept the challenge.
Can you list the items needed and where to buy when you have a chance?

You can most likely take it to any decent auto body shop and tell them what you want with the strips. I had an acquaintance that owed me a favor paint it (a body shop painter) and it took him like 20 mins to paint and clear and most likely cost him $20 in materials. If you go in and they say $60 to paint it, do it.

Ahhh! Good to know, thanks. I'm still considering a couple of options.

I considered going with a different grille but I like the way this looks. I get to keep my chrome accents which I like for the contrast and it's really minimal work when you consider everything else that we do to achieve the look and feel we want with our cars haha

Uploaded a video of the cold start of the Eurojet full TBE - I'll get more videos of how it sounds in different situations as well and continue uploading them.

Thanks! I do rub when I'm going through the canyons around here. But that's only when I go down a steep incline with a bump. Other than that no, I'm sitting really flush with my fenders, it's a really good fitment.

Glad to hear! Hope I don't rub too much on auto crosses and when I track it, planning on matting them with Komi yellows!

I was looking at a lot of different aftermarket wheel options to change it up from my Interlagos. I've always had a thing for the 5-spoke wheels. Here's the end result:



I decided once again to not go aftermarket.

. . . For now . . .

Thanks!

Now I'm having the rub issues you were askin about earlier. I went from a 225/40/18 on the old tire/rim setup to a 235/40/18, which is the same size as what the rims came with from another member on here. Every bump it hits that fender screw. I'm going to have to take it out. Seems like 225/40/18 is the max you can go comfortably on H&R Super Sports with stock struts.

I had super sports on stock struts with 235 and it rubbed all the time front and rear. 225/40/18 is gonna be your best bet.
