Great write up Don

I nominate for Sticky since this is always brought up

Hey is that the "Old Wikid" next to yours in the final shot? It has the white under the mirrors.
That was my custom touch to wikid.
If you look at the body lines, the white mirror base flows with the doors.
The upper mirror is black to flow with the windows that are tinted.
The door handles were also white again to flow with the doors.
I originally did that when Wikid was Yellow. It just made sense to me

Here was the original look

That is very clear, especially the before and after pics. It may inspire me take the leap solo the Spring. Well done

The Old Wikid is on the right in the photo and his wife's 2008 TT is on the left (behind the new Rock!)
