Looks nice. Like the gold rocker cover might nick that idea if you don't mind! Did you manage to get those bits off the dash to spray? been considering finding some Vti-s carbon dash inserts but they look like a git to remove; might just spray 'em black.
This guy-

might have have some lips left. Never found any at a scrappy, seen some fiberglass copies on eBay but I'm guessing they would last about a couple of weeks tops on the speed bumps around here. Spoiler was fairly easy to find though, got mine of a Vti but totally the same item.

Just noticed- your front wipers are possibly on the wrong sides, looks like they overhang the screen a bit. Smaller wiper on the passenger side (I think; that's how mine are).

Think I will do the same with the dash, thought also about putting vinyl over it but I reckon fake carbon will look just as gash as fake wood- Rattlecans ahoy! :)
