Quote from: "krux303"
was this the same one you had on your car kevin?

It was one of the two I've had...... :lol:

I had an Invader back around a year and a half ago....it was HondaStompers. Since his car is (still) down, I borrowed it and drove around with it on before I added my WW kit. I took it back to him earlier this year and then ended up purchasing Mellow's CF hood for him and had it on for a week or so until I got it to him.
A new beginning.....again!

Couple new underhood shots, all that's changed is the valve cover vent has been replaced(I think? lol)

Nice on the head lights they look great. What kind of polishing wheel did you use? I have a makita buffer with a compound pad's and polishing pads.

I have always thought that doing the charcoal gray two tone interior would look good!!! but I would probably go the lazy way and leave my gray dash and use the charcoal pieces  :D

They were in the tub b/c it was cold as bawlz outside so I sprayed them w/ plane stripper and left them there so it wouldn't take foreverrr.  As far as the buffer it was just a regular bench grinder type thing with a buffing wheel on it. I did the gray w/ dc pieces for a while, but I like the dark dash mo betta 8-)
