Looks really good man! Been eyeballing those smoked Valentis myself. Also, hows the new HU and speakers working out for you? Upgrading the stock audio is definitely on my wish list

Thanks! And the headunit is a huge improvement you don't have to mash the screen to for it to work like the stock one and you can download most apps off the google store through the built in wi-fi. The speakers have definitely improved the overall clarity of the music its less distorted when you turn up the volume also.

@brandonblt2 Your car is looking great! Mind posting a picture of the rear with the tails off? Thinking of buying the same tails, but can't find a pic with the tails off on a WRB. Thanks so much!

Looks really good, the rota wheels actually looks great. I was thinking of getting fighter dpt wheels.

If you are looking at going gloss black maybe plasti dip them matt black and use a glossifier to give them a gloss finish. Cheaper than having them painted and if you don't like it just peel it off.

Oh I already painted the wheels with a few coats of clearcoat they're now a semi-gloss finish. Its kinda hard to tell in the pictures but yea there is way more shine and the wheels don't look dirty all the time

After checking again, yeah you can tell they are more glossy. Very nice.

My car is orange so I think gloss black wheels will look better than Matt black.

Great project.
