Reattached my trailer hitch friday, it broke off from too many driveways awhile back. Broke it in towing my friends ATV's on sunday, we must have been a strange sight... Gonna wash it today, very dusty.

It does look cool.
I can't stand people that can't park!
I'm all about defending your ride!!!
I'm not saying don't do it...
Just be prepared to pay the hospital bills of the people (incl. yourself) that accidently walk into it...
From many years experience having a truck w/ a hitch. You never seem to learn that sucker is sticking out waiting on ya.

Great Idea!! I bet nobody would even park behind you in fear of you hitting them. lol

Also you have the same rims and paint job as mine! Nvm, you plasti-dipped them huh? Yours look a little better than mine but, mine were corroded pretty bad. Did you plasti-dip the plastic trim also? Also good to see someone else using carbon fiber vinyl wrap. Looks good on the roof! Never thought of covering that. Is each strip on the roof one single piece? If so you must have bought a huge roll!

to answer your question .... that is carbon fiber..... i have a guy near me that does cf molds and helped me do it ...... it wasnt bad.... about $150 worth on cf and another $50 for him to teach me how to mold it ...... yes the rims are dipped ..... and the mouldings also ... i fugure i dont wanna do anything permanent in the car till i decide if im gonna keep it or go old school (90's 9c1)

Thats real CF? But why? You could have used CF Vinyl wrap and nobody would even notice the difference. Plus its a heck of alot cheaper
