I am planning on wrapping her in matte orange vinyl or painting her that color. I might replace the hood with a carbon fiber hood. I am wanting to get air ride suspension set up and replace the stock wheels with an 18 x 9.5 +35 offset and do a fender to lip fitment dropping her. I have just put in amber rocklights for footwell lights in the interior . (Use promo code Masterson_GTI for a discount on parts). Now plan on getting neon under carriage lights. I did some bodywork on the front bumper and re-painted and clear coated it. (Before and after pics included)
