Detailed and Some New Mods

Just wanted to post some updated pictures after a detail and some new additions. The shop that does all my work washed it for me so I figured now was the best time to share. I had the new silver hood crest put on...genuine Porsche part. Also, had them install the aluminum shift **** and e-brake handle, as well as paint the gate/letters black. The gate was already painted black, so we did the e-brake to match.

On to the pictures. Hope you like.

I got it from the company that does all my work, Ultimate Auto in Orlando. My guy there got a couple from Suncoast for a Panamera they were working on for Ken Griffey, Jr., and then gave me the extra...no charge. It goes on with double-sided tape, not the normal posts.

I love the kit and stance. Not feeling the wheels much.
Nice work though.

The wheels are more for performance. They're lighter than stock, and I found them used right up the street from me. Plus, they're 18's so I didn't need new tires. I love the look, though. Not into baller looking wheels that weigh more than stock.

Porschepet, how's the windshield banner holding up? Still debating getting one.

Still looking great! I found if you keep some tire shine or armor all on it ,it stays looking new even with lots of wiper usage like we have here in the pnw.
For 40.00 I don't mind replacing it every 3 years

Charles06,

does ultimate auto do their own painting in house? My TechArt lip spoiler has a crack in it and needs to be repainted. I think I've seen your car around town. its definitely one of the nicest caymans I've seen.

Clee,

Thanks for the compliment. And yes, Ultimate Auto does everything. They just moved into the old Macnamera (sp) dealership on the corner of 50 and Orange Blossom. They have some exclusive deal with BASF to use the paint that is used on Rolls Royce's. BASF even flew in Chip Foose to give the painters some advice. It's not mentioned in this thread, but they painted the whole front of my car. Came out great. I was there a few days ago, and they had a line-up of cars waiting for a total color change, including a Maybach.

When you go, ask for Imran or Patrick, and tell them that Charles sent you. They'll take care of you. And don't miss their first Cars & Coffee event on Nov. 5th. I'll be there with a MasterCraft and some Sea Doo's, as I work for Southeast Marine.

See you there!
