i have whored pics of my car on here. and its time to add some new stuff for my new setup. wondering if you guys/girls think i should have the FMIC/intercooler piping powdercoated black, or keep it polished. also, do you think i should keep the mesh on the lower portion of my bumper, or remove it? for those that don't know, i have a 2003 MSM with CF TRD mesh grille, CF Seibon hood, and Lsportline front bumper. also keep in mind i also have a polished Koyo radiator in there as well.

polish them up :cool:

And remove the mesh (better air flow possibly)

hmmm...imo i would powdercoat everything glossy black, not flat black, and take off the mesh so it would be easier to see the glossyness of the fmic and pipings. i think the glossy black would blend well with the car, unless you really want your intercooler to stand out.
i just like the sleeper look more

Keep her polished, will match your setup better with your radiator and looks sexy with msm, and i say keep the mesh, it will protect that fmic from debris and stuff like that :cool:

I think it would look good if you removed the mesh and polished the I/C piping. Also sorry for the jack but have you ever had any problems with your c/f hood with no hood pins?
