Good point! I guess it wouldn’t be bad idea just to get a sheet and leave it out in the sun all summer and see how it holds up and do some stress testing.

I think they make suede/alcantara with the adhesive backing for diy trim pieces.

Depends what it is. Glue is used to hold pieces that don’t have stretch, or to conform to inside curves. I picked up some upholstery glue from this place a few years back. A couple white ladies working hard and sniffing fumes all day at this place. They use good products (I needed a tiny bit and it only comes by the gallon, he said bring a small container) lol.

“Black Heart Design” near Coquitlam Ikea.

Good thing the tape is there to hold all that broken glass from the circuit racing this car sees

I kid, it’s always beautiful and the details really make it

Fat ass wing (Ottenger style)



Bumperdillo cuz why the hell not. it looks kinda Aero-y?


Factory sun shades which will also act as an anti mosquito net if I ever go car camping.

Ottinger!!!!

Not sure if factory colour matched, or just a very good AliExpress replica.

Regardless, looks sick.

it came with the most garbage tape in the world that I just threw out. I used 3m VHB (very high bitch) tape and its on like a rock.

Like I said, aliexpress shit is hit and miss, but most of the time it'll surprise you. The quality, the shipping, the overall color match is quite good. What is absolutely amazing is the stinking price

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005...7d2f18025KxGAm

20 bucks for the wing, 40 dollars for shipping = 60 bucks to GET THIS ricey ass wing!? come on, who would say no to that?

Soon im going to get some side skirts, and front splitter from Ali and stick it on.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005...Cquery_from%3A

this looks decent for a front splitter.
