    Actually- in the course of trying to match the HKS Purple I had, I found a darker version (which is what Rodrigo used). So now we have the OG HKS Purp and a darker version too!

    As far as the civic.... what do you think?

    For the civic, I'm guessing you pulled it out of the shop and its sitting at the new shop with the paint job in progress, let me know when you get it back ill give you a hand putting it back together

    I wish! Actually, anodizing requires as many permits as chroming, so unfortunately I cant.

    I do have powder coat that looks like anodizing tho!

    I will shoot some pics and post them up.

    Hey Guys- I just wanted to let everyone know that for a little while, they shop is closed. B&G has basically kicked me out because they needed more space.

    I am currently trying to find a new location, so please forgive any non-responses from me. This is REALLY shitty for me right now!

    Its like withdrawl from a drug! I am feending for some powder coating!!!
