I guess it's about damn time I made one of these. I've been involved with tibs since around 2004. Had an 03 silver that I modded a little. Then I got into an accident that totaled it. In 2007 I picked up the 05 that I currently have. It was my DD for a few years and then it became a little weekend car. Now the car currently has around 65k miles on it and I just got it back from the body shop.

Here's a list of what I had done at the shop:
-Full Repaint(Color: BMW Carbon Black 416)
-All Dents and Dings Removed
-Antenna Shaved
-Trunk Emblem and Keyhole Shaved
-Front Bumper, Hood, and Sideskirts Refitted and Rebraced
-Rear Pods Molded on the Rear Bumper
-eBay High Wing Replaced with OEM High Wing
-Deltas Painted
-Wheel Wells Painted
-Carbon Fiber Hood Painted
-New Tomato A&P Eyelines
-New F/L Headlights
-New Windshielf Wiper Cowl
-New Front Windshield(Old was chipped)
-Front and Rear Fenders Fully Rolled
-G-games logo on front bumper shaved

It all wasn't cheap either. This paint job is as perfect as I could get. All aftermarket body parts are solid, nothing was overlooked. I checked for runs, scratches, overspray, etc. Found nothing. That's what you should expect when you're paying close to $10k though.

New Work wheels have been ordered(Rotas are outdated). Going with a far more aggressive offset and width. I'll be installing the New Rear Wilwood BBK, New Weapon-R Engine Damper, New DC Sports Headers, New Front and Rear Hub Assemblies/Bearings, New ZMRMods Shaved Front Valve Cover, New MirrorFinishPolishing Polished Fuel Rails, New Engine Bay Plastics, and a couple New Interior Pieces that are just worn out over the next couple weeks. I'll also be ripping out the A/C soon and I'm having a custom trunk enclosure built by the same shop that did the exterior.

And here's how it sits currently:



















I'll get some much better outdoor shots when the weather gets better.

Obviously, as I mentioned before, there is still lots to be done. I've considered pulling the engine and moving up to a stage 3 or 4 or even going assassin, but I'm not sure if I want to get into that. I may pick up some new coils, as the arks need rebuilt. Also looking at some new Bride's. Just depends how much more I want to get into it.

Let me know what you think.

Had just enough of my zaino supply left to spent a solid 8 hours working on waxing/sealing last night. I can't wait to get this thing back on the ground with the new wheels and out in the sun.

Looks sooo clean. I can't believe we've both been on this site this long and I've never seen a full shot of the car.

I can't either! :)

Thank you! I didn't feel it was worth showing before. Now I'm comfortable with it. Except for the engine bay. I have to start cutting up the new engine plastics this weekend so I can get them on there. Plus I'll get more detailed pics of the engine and the interior.

Re: Generalduke's Tiburon

I like to see this black tib! It has got incredible interesting paint work.
It is looking really sharp the way it is, nice job!

Current rims are looking good on the car, but if you are working with Shadow on new rims.. You got me excited to see what is going to happen..
