    Plan on visiting a place here in Houston in two weeks to haventhis done. I have back surgery on Tuesday so next week is shot.

    But then, I pick her up with a rebuilt front end w KW V3's at the end of next week if all goes well.

    I'm looking for a unique look. Kinda like a variation of the gloss black w matte black stripes.

    I'll post pics when finished. Can't wait!

    Can't wait to see the Torch Red, as long as they get the shade of matte Red correct.

    That has me concerned also. It has to be a match otherwise, nope. I will have a problem... gotta remove the clear bra and have it redone. Ouch. But it needs it.

    You could consider installing the 3M Matte clear instead of actual colored stripes. Would give you a matte finish on your red paint. Might be cheaper too.

    I agree with just doing the matte clear. You know it will match then. Also you said your going to have the clear on it redone but won't that turn a matte into a gloss?
