Silver is slightly more expensive, and a bitch to get the pigment right. That's why there's three coats. So, that made it a little more expensive. Plus I bought two quarts of it and a gallon of clear. I have extra silver, which is good. I figured since I had never painted the real professional way before, I figured I was going to mess up and have to have extra paint. I have almost a qt left over.

I was thinking about painting the rims to match. I know that they are already painted but the silvers don't match that well. Also the little black plastic piece on the hatch is going to get painted. I think I've got plenty of paint to do that stuff and then some.

thanks for the kind words!
Honey, why are you driving so fast? "I just want to get home so I can ____ your brains out!"
