|ZX3 GFX||about your grill, chrome plated plastic. www.specialitychromedplastics.com They vaccuum plate plastic parts chrome. I plan on sending them my upper & lower honeycombs from my GFX. Personally I haven't seen anything nicer than the stock grills.|

Oooooo, I bet that silver will look great on those headlights. I did the same thing and painted them Liquid Grey using Dupli-Color. They're not exact but they look close enough. I love that look and I can't wait to see it on yours. I've never seen it done on CD Silver before.
You can see mine in my gallery if you wanted to check it out.

Also, I just painted the headlights. When I put the lenses back on them I was displeased with the way that the silver looks so much darker inside the headlamp assy. I'm thinking about taking them back apart and painting them with a lighter silver. I'll post a pic of them as soon as I get a chance.

That looks killer! Great job. I really like your grill idea as well. I too am fed up with my grills and am looking for replacements but something I can do myself.
I need my body kit painted, roof and some other components painted by summer.
You said the Silver was expensive, how do you think that would compare to Liquid Grey? Also expensive?
*Edit* No, my body kit is not installed on my car...hehe Waiting for paint.

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!
