My FN1 Type-S GT

Had this car just over a year now and making steady progress, I'm also a keen cyclist so my money get's split between both interests.

Started off Nighthawk Black but due to several imperfections i decided to get it wrapped in a Pearl White which has transformed the car. I've also fitted Heko wind deflectors, a K&N Panel Filter and had the callipers sprayed red.

More pics will come in time, just had to pay for my insurance on the car and my bike this month so mods have took a back seat until middle/end of the month. Alloy wheels are looking most likely to be the next thing.

A metallic white wrap has been bubbling around in my head for weeks. You've proved it's a good idea because that looks properly ace.

I was dubious at first because white cars are so common these day's but when I seen this Pearl one I knew it would look quality. Thinking about white 18's as well to compliment it along with a OEM Type-R spoiler.

Nice! I would now be tempted to gloss black the arch trims and sills.

Yeah I had thought about that because of the wing mirrors and door handles.

1100 which included the alloys being fully cleaned and the callipers being sprayed. Seems a lot but I am thinking of the protection it also offers the body work on the car.
