    How does this look?

    When my car goes into the bodyshop(whenever thatll be) I want to shave my trunk. I was thinking about shaving the lisence plate box in my bumper and shaving the exhaust hole on my TOMS rear lip and relocating the license plate to the trunk. I want to know what you guys think of how it looks. Here is an example I did real quick in Photoshop. Let me know which looks better!

    Heres what I WANT it to look like:

    Here is what it looks like with the trunk shaved normally:

    Hm... I can't say that it really makes a difference to me either way.

    Save your money for something else?

    i really hope you dont reposition your license plate like the first picture....but i fully support the trunk shaving tho....the only thing is if you ever do shave ur trunk, you should try and incorporate some body lines (like creases or grooves) into that fabrication cuz it just looks too plain if its shaven w/o ne lines....thats just my opinion....but i kno you already have good taste judging from the pictures youve posted of ur car so i kno youll end up makin the right decision...

    I agree about an exaust system. The first pic is blocked so I can only see the 2nd.. I like the color, kind of like a pewter, or a Gun metal... :)

    But yeah it would be nice.

    trunk shaved looks nice, ehh it doesn't hurt to bump an old thread, maybe the users did not turn off email notification and they get the email and maybe revisit the site like some of our older members just to start a part-out thread...
