    Normally a snake loses its skin - mine received another layer of skin. From Green to Blue/White...

    Strange question, with that large license plate, how do you open the trunk ??

    Not a strange question at all, past_ohio. We normally do have these large license plates here in Germany. With the help of some friend I might be able to get a smaller one not hiding the trunk lock. ;-)

    with the licence plate, i was thinking can you just make up an opening where the trunk lock is and keep this long plate?

    It surprisingly looks really good. Like the Viper that never was. Tell everyone it was a one-off prototype.

    When I first saw this post yesterday I assumed the car had been painted. The car has a vinyl wrap? Car looks great, I agree that black seats would complete the look.

    Hey John! Yes, it is a vinyl wrap with 3M film, done by professionals. Should last at least 6-7 years. Every detail was wrapped, up into the farest edge of the body. An amateur wouldn't see it if he doesn't know.

    The car was just wrapped. The foil is wrapped around all the edges and jams of the car.

    Looks pretty good! I was actually thinking "this color wasn't produced, was it?"

    Nice to see some German owners over here, maybe we'll see each other on some meeting, not sure if those excist...

    Buddy of mine is buying an RT/10 as well and was also thinking about wrapping it, if you don't mind, you could pm me the cost, so I can give him an indication to count with.
