Finally took a few decent pictures of the new Koup :)
I know it's nothing special, especially compared to some of yours! lol but here he is!! (My black Spectra is in the background saying hi lol)


Pinstriped the grill yesterday! It was something I could actually afford to do to the car...lol!! I was worried about the reds not matching but I think it looks okay :)


I got my hair dryer out and popped off "Forte"...took freakin forever to get the sticky crap off.



The silver door guards came on the car. I'm not sure if I should take them off or not. Do they look stupid? I'm kinda thinking yes. But my mom tells me they "look sharp"....hahahah (That's her white soul in the background.)


I gotta represent my favorite team :) lol


I had lots of the striping stuff left over so I put some on the dash. I think it looks cool :) I love red lol



Okie dokie well there's my Koup:) I know he's not nearly as cool as most of yours but maybe he will be when I have more money lol :)

If you don't like the chrome/silver door guards go to Pepboys and buy their red door edge guards -- it will look better, match the paint, and will still protect the doors. I got the dark-blue door edge guards on my Corsa blue Koup and they blend with the car's paint pretty good. Pepboys only has clear, chrome, red, and dark-blue door edge guards.

We don't have one of those, but I think they have them in Phoenix...the clear ones sound like a great idea!! Thanks!!!
