The flames were done with DNA FLAKEZ in a clear coat with the design masked out on the car. The flames cannot be seen too clearly in photos and have not been able to take a picture yet with the flames been able to be seen clearly but will keep trying so i can show you's all how they look

Looks pretty good considering wat u started with. Nice and tidy, but in my opinion needs bigger wheels. Love those flames tho, id love to get some airbrushed onto mine.

Entirely different ballgame fitting 17's on a Swift sport compared to a Gti Johnny.
They would fill out the body kit nicely dude. Cant believe you haven't put them on yet!
