I love the look of it!! Can you post a link of what vinyl used on the window trim and door handle's? Any up close detailed pictures? Sorry for all the questions.

No problem on the questions. Shoot away.

My best advice would be to go to a sign shop and ask for a few yards to play with. Its pretty easily stretched and looks like stock rubber. I dont have any close up pics. I remember I cut 1.5" ~ strips of it and put it on the chrome, then trimmed it out with an x-acto blade. For the handle, I simply used a bigger strip.

If they charge you more than $25, don't do it. You can find rolls of the stuff online.

Feel free to PM me.

Blacking the car out was one of my favorite mods along with the wheels. Changed the whole look of the car dramatically. I like the chrome, but it looks kinda cheap IMO.

Well I can always flip the emblem back over. As for the stickers, I've already decided not to put them on

I'd rather want my car a sexy sleek black then a sticker whore haha

Thats the machined finish. So much better than silver, gunmetal or gawdawful chrome. The Servo had a lot of detail that was lost with the chrome. I got sooooo many comments on the wheels. To bad he doesn't make them anymore.

Freak'n breathtaking. It kinda changed colors and always looked hot. I like the machined finish so much that when looking for new wheels for the MX5, I searched high and low for good looking, light weight wheels that we're machined...non existant and heart breaking.

So this is how the CL looked brand new in 2003. Clean and spoiler-less this car still looks beautiful in 2012.

I like mine. I would almost like the front more firm so it doesnt scrape so much but besides that awesome feel.

I am more than happy with them. They can go plenty low and the ride quality is not to bad either. I have had mine on the car for over 2 years now and have not had a a single problem with them.
