Loks ace in the contrasted pictures.
Really like the black and white theme you have gone for.
Can't believe I came across this thread only now! I collected my White pre-facelifted Tig only a couple weeks ago but have been surfing the net for nice looking white Tigs.
Beautiful car mate! I'm a sucker for white. Haha I have done well!!
Coincidentally looking at the Lamin-X red tint for my tail lights. but the smoked ones are tempting too.
Did a 5 hour thorough wash on the car, dried, clay bar'ed the entire car (being a used vehicle, there were a lot of tress sap n insect marks... Pity I cldnt much to the stone chips).. And sealed the whole car. I was wrecked after but it pleased me to see the Tig clean n paint protected!!
Gonna also embark on Plasti-Dipping the front grill. Contemplating something 'different' in look but also thinking of blacking out that thin white piece below likes yours. So it was reaaaaally good to see another person doing before me so that I have a good look at it! Good thing abt Plasti-Dip is that if I didn't think it looks good enough I can peel it off!! Haha
I'm looking at a set of 19's also... Hmmm just waiting to finalize some bits and to save some coins for that to happen. Haha
Headlamps are temporarily held on Singapore now. So hopefully they will come back w me in March and I'll get them installed.
I read the entire thread and pained me to come to the part that she was keyed. Some ppl are just plain idiots. But glad to see that she's back in the pink!! ... Or rather, back in the WHITE of health!!! Hah
I read earlier that you PAINTED your own roof!?! Wow!! I was thinking of blacking out my roof as well but we Vinyl. Cos I was too afraid to paint it. I wasn't sure how to do it.. ie to spray everything evenly, etc... Just thinking out loud, after sealing the paint w Nanolex Paint Sealant which makes it hydrophobic, wld painting on top of a sealed paint be "impossible"?? Cld u enlighten us on ur experience on painting the roof?
Any other mods planned besides the coilovers?
Excellent photo w urself on the roof of ur Tig by the way!!! Lol!! Awesome!
Side note: good to see u here team_v!!
Congrats on your Tiggy! Looking good!

Congrats on the White Tiggy! I love the white look as well...Obviously..haha
For the roof.. Sorry for the confusion. I didn't actually paint the roof MYSELF, I had a local shop take care of that. I can imagine if I tried to do it myself it would turn into a nightmare
I also was thinking of vinyling my roof before I decided to paint it. Vinyl is a great option if you're not sure you want your roof to stay black FOREVER!! The only reason why I didn't do vinyl is because I figured if I was going to spend the money to get it vinyled with the possible chance of me wanting to take it off in the future, it just wouldn't be worth all the money spent. In the end, I love the look of the paint and i'm very satisfied with how it turned out.
I do have more plans for Tiggy in the near future, but you'll just have to wait and see. I can't give away my secrets yet
Thanks for the good words and good luck with your TIG!
I know it's 9 months away, but who's planning on going to Oktoberfest this year? ! It was a blast last year! Bernie and the Dubnation crew put on a great show. I'm already looking forward to going again!
