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!
