Very nice and shiny. That looks like a great custom job.
Well done.

Would someone please tell me how to post these pictures?

You could go to a site like http://tinypic.com/

upload a picture
name it
choose to resize it for a message board

once complete, it will generate the link for the picture.

come back here, click on insert image (icon looks like a post card with the stamp on the right), this will open up a window that you can copy paste the link from the site hosting the picture.

Your source does not allow for linking and hosting..

Next two projects

I like my tow hooks so I want them to look like a permanent installation:

I bored a hole thru the hole covers and screwed the hooks in.

These hooks have a nut so when I get them set in place I double nutted them tight so they won't rotate (or wander off)

All Projects should be this easy

New Wheels at dusk by Brad, on Flickr
Any upgrade that can be completed simply by throwing money at it has no soul but getting the 18's leaves me with the 17 inch wheels on which I will put Bridgestone Blizzaks

That looks great. Is it 20's all round or the rear and back glass only?
The fronts look a touch lighter but it could be because of the light coming through the windscreen.

Blacker, your car looks great but here in the South West that shinny black would be covered with a layer of Phoenix brown within 20 Mins.:D:D

It's all 20%, as you surmised, you were seeing the windscreen through the side. Here's another view:

There is something that draws me in to Carbon Fibre and alot of other people. Just a shame it's so damned expensive.
I think it's the textured layers that give it depth. I know you can get carbon fibre looking wrap but not sure if it gives the same look.
