First model of 2013. 

The intended colour was to be Midnight Purple, and then the automotive store got the colour wrong, so I'll be nicknaming it Midnight Purple as in in-joke to myself to remind me to never go there again. 

 

Anyway, I lowered it slightly at front and gave it a bit of camber and left the rear stock (not to everyone's taste, personally I like it) and made a few small bits for the interior to spice it up, an iPod and an iPhone.

Ha I had the same thing happen to me at a local paint/part's house, I never wen't back.  I like the color anyway and the ipod is a really cool touch.  I personally think the rear camber should match the front, but you like it and that is what count's.  Nice build.

Very nice work...The camber is just right....Looks just like the real ones I've seen around here....Never really got why they do that, but "To each his own"....Very nice work...

Terrific build!! Just out of curiosity, should that paint have been applied over a black base? I say that because I know Midnight Purple Pearl has some color-change properties and when using those type of paints, a black or darker color allows those properties to show through the best.

Thanks everyone, I didn't see those comments! It was sprayed over a black base coat, so it really aggravated me when this happened. Oh well, it's grown on me now!
