This conversion should be labeled transformation as it takes a older look and makes it look modern.

Mine was just painted today as well - have to wait for the rest of the car to get sprayed though. . .

Love the black fins! Black fins make the fins stand out more and look more 3D.
Matte black fins can be another option for you guys, too.

Mine is painted...but I thought the bumper truly was "bolt-on" so I hadn't ordered the lever & three mounts. Waiting on them.

Also...the guys doing mine noticed there was no hardware to attach the mesh to the new bumper and they're having some minor difficulty with the "fitment" of the chrome strips for the inserts. They ended up having to run out and get some nuts and bolts for the mesh inserts. Just hoping it turns out all good. Hopefully it'll be on by the end of the week.

Guys, I can take pics of mine, but running mesh on the inside of the fins looks HOT. Just make sure it matches the front mesh pattern. I painted mine the GT-R dark grey ,same as my front mesh as I got away from black.
