    Sx mini face lift

    Before :




    After :



    Questions :
    1) is Steve an excellent modder?
    A) naw hes pretty crap.
    2) was it fun to do?
    A) hell yea!
    3) does the yihi chip actually run better after the modding?
    A) yes, the sx mini now actually runs better after being wrapped in carbon fibre.
    4) why isnt it perfect?
    A) because steve's an ass and chipped his own painwork with a scalpel while applying said carbon fibre.
    Thanks for looking, suggestions on improvement are welcomed

    Nice one mate, perfection is overrated.

    PS: did you prime the metal surface before painting

    Great job Steve, you'd think they would coat them with more than nail polish for the price they cost.

    well done steve. If you can take 2 steps back, look at what you have created, and it puts a smile on your face...... well it's a win win situation.
