'18 Edge Sport w/ Full SS Tuning body kit, 22s, and lowered

Recommended Posts

So I'm going to start off by saying that I'm back, but most of you probably never knew I left. I stopped in a long time ago and made a post about my '15 two toned Electric Spice Sport. Well since then I was in a pretty traumatic accident and my love was destroyed, but somehow I managed to come out alive. I will say that it saved my life and I'm a VERY fond believer in that.

After the accident I started shopping again and found myself a Lightning Blue Metallic '18 Sport. Everything else is a blur after that. I started spending like it was going out of style, but it was a sort of coping mechanism for me after the wreck. I'm sure many of you can get where I'm coming from. After the purchase, I got with my painter and was ready to get it into the body shop to install the SS Tuning body kit and front splitter that I had originally purchased for my 2015. I ended up purchasing a set of used 3pc AMF Forged 22x10.5 wheels that had originally came off a Edge that was built for SEMA a couple years back. The car also got a different stance using the H&R Springs that everyone knows and loves, as well as a Addco rear sway bar. After I got all that ironed out, I scheduled a photoshoot and here's a few from the group.

And from there, I started working on the little things. Completed a full stereo install.

And most recently, I installed Oracle Colorshift underglow and wheel rings....

Next piece of the puzzle is to start on the interior. Plan is to wrap most of the trim pieces in Hexis forged carbon fiber and then all the stainless trim will be color matched to the outside of the car.  We all know its NEVER done so we will see where it goes from there. 

 

Thanks for looking. Please ask any questions and feel free to comment.

Wow... I just saw the picture of your wrecked '15!... :( Glad you got out of it alive!  About your "new" '18 Sport, It looks beautiful...The stance, the wheels, and especially the color... looks great! :2thumbs: Personally, it's the grille which I'm not too crazy of, but other than that, it looks beautiful!  Great job!:thumbsup:

 

Claude.
