Here are some photos of the overlays:

The 20% is hard to tell, but compared side by side to another, there is noticeably less chrome shine of course.

Here are some pics of the lip kit install:

stainless steel bolts, similar install to the HT Autos lip install with regards to removing underpanels. i did not remove the front bumper for this install.






used some weather stripping for the rear spats. I got them from my dad, he had them leftover from a kit he had for his vw scirroco maybe 23 years ago! so i dont know where to purchase something like this, it has a notched that fit the edge of the molding perfectly, and this flap that extended down, which was perfect for 3M tape to help secure

Sorry, I don't have too many more pics at the moment. But I'll try to take some time and take some more shots. I usually sleep when it's daylight so I have a narrow window of time!

Here is a few more pics I added to my other thread for the lip install in particular.

i had wrapped my roof gloss black and also was curious to wrap my brz front mustache! turns out i like both, but i really like the wrapped mustache. it has a nice gloss look and the texture of the mustache comes through. i have a feeling this may not be for everyone, but i like it a lot!

Thanks! @switchlanez . Your car is on my list of favorites! now deciding on some suspension and some black wheels!

The wrap was actually a gloss black not a CF wrap. the texture of our mustaches creates that look though. I decided to go with the gloss black since my CF lip is also gloss. So i wanted to see if i can get the mustache to pop or match the "gloss" look of the car. Actually, what inspired me to want to try to get the mustache wrapped is the GTR though i know it has a different mustache altogether.

I aso wanted to get the rear diffuser wrapped as well, and would look pretty cool in my mind, but for now holding off, it seems that the vendor i use would have a hard time due to its shape and all the bends.

If your looking for an exhaust might I recommend Borla. Just received mine yesterday and installed today. The guys from FT-86 Speedfactory were very friendly and fast to ship.

Looks good! I just got some Matte Black 3M Vinyl to wrap my roof. I'm going to have to paint my shark fin though...

Do you have any shots of the car further back so I can see the whole thing at once?

Thanks!! Looking good...
