fastzx360 Let me know when you're ready to do the suspension. I've done quite a bit and I'm also in SA.

Update with pics!

Here's a big update and plenty of pics....

First this happened -

Then I covered these car seats...

With these....

Next up - painted the vents...

Next project was to wrap this hideous door upholstery stuff...

So I did this....

And the finished product on the doors....

Next up I am going to pain the speaker covers black. What do you think?

katiekay Leave the wheels alone, they are already a good color. If you want to do anything with the wheels, look into aftermarket. Look here for ideas:

dwillisgt3 I might try one handle like you said. when I get around to the rims I'll take them off the car to make it easier. I was planing on doing the roof in black someday and I think the black mirrors would look better then. still don't know what color to go on the rims.

replica81 I'd try plastidipping a single door handle and see how it turns out. A lot of people plastidip Xbox controllers for better grip. I don't know why it'd be a poor choice for a door handle.

Those wheels will be challenging to plastidip due to the spokes. Go for it, if you dare. I've done similar wheels and it's difficult to get even texture between the facing spokes and the grooves due to their relative distance from the spray. Worst outcome is you just remove it and start over.

I'd white dip the mirrors for sure.

dwillisgt3 what are your opinions on plasti dipping the rims? should I go black or white?
05-07-2013 07:53 PM
dwillisgt3 didn't dip the wipers. bought then that way cause my old ones were.. old. not a fan of the white now that I bought them, but I'm stuck for now. I'll hold off on the handles then. not looking to buy anything at the moment, but wasn't plasti dip designed for tool handles, as something you do touch everyday?
