      After having my Honda dropped on the ground for 8 years, I am not ready for another rough/bumpy ride.

      if this is "dropped on the ground," then you must think you drive a "lowered" car.

      Thanks.

      Nope, I wish. It does look like it's on a lift though.

      I'm surprised he doesn't have the R riced up.

      Hey PSU,
      I think you've taken about the best shots that I've seen so far of the R32. I've been thinking a R32 and thought I wanted a UG but after seeing your pics maybe I should look for a blue. I think your lens makes all the difference in the quality of your shots, but not to take away from your composing.
      thanks,
      ak

      You better get that clear bra, that blue tape looks like ass, I know its effective but if you are that particular about your car get the clear bra, it is far better than blue tape and you wont have to worry about spending all the time taping and retaping

      Lol... now that you mention it, it does look like lipstick. It is bird crap though.


      Thanks for the comment. I am shooting with a Canon 1DMk2N. I have a Canon 70-200 L and a Tamron 28-75 as well.

      I hope you do something other than shoot your car with that camera

      I have a small collection of canon camera's (XTi, 20D, D60, G9) and lenses (50/1.4, 10-22, 80-200f/2.8L, 17-55f/2.8IS, 100/2.8 macro, 400/5.6L) but have never even thought I should get a 1Dxxxxx, let along the N, so I was curious what else you shoot?

      I used to shoot college football, which is why I have such an overkill camera.

      I guess you could say I was an amateur photographer because at one point I was making some good money. Everyone told me to pursue something in photography, but I sort of gave it up .

      After I get some sleep I might post some of my work. (I just got done working 12-8 and the photos are on my external).

      Anyways though, I started off with an OG Canon Digital Rebel and worked my way up from there through trial and error.

      It's funny you say that... it's where I started too, but most old skool photogs would not consider the 300D OG

      very nice pics either way, I like you're style

      LOL, thanks man.

      According to today's standard's though, I'd say the 300d is old skool.

      Installed color matched ESE sidemarkers and bought a set of Dubstop chrome mirror covers and worked some magic on them:

      I took so many pictures because I wanted people to see that the mirrors do indeed match the grill really well because I have always heard that they do not match.

      okay, thats understandable...but the subject of the picture is great. the coloring in the pic on your R, is just brilliant!

      a big on your buffing efforts
      i too just did mirrors on my CW, but they are black so, no buffing

      I considered the textured black R-Line mirrors, but ended up going for the bling.

      Just keep practicing and make sure you are touching them up a bit in Photoshop. Also, be sure you are hosting them on a site that doesn't compress them.

      a couple of comments.

      - less angular/crooked pictures, more in-progress/diy pictures.
      - i still see brush marks in those mirror caps. so i would say that they still do not match the front grille. unless you brushed the grille as well, which isn't a bad idea.

      Awesome looking car! Can you offer some more info on what you did to the mirrors to give them the "brushed" look?

      Thanks.

      My only constructive suggestion is to remove the R32 grille badge since you debadged the R32 from the rear.

      I did the same, and wrote the DIY on GolfMKV.com

      if you are still seeing brush marks, you can clearcoat them, it does help
