It does look good. I did it to my old sedan. It's not an opinion that it's gonna wear off tho, it's a fact!

lol that's dirty

OK I love my sedan... miss that it doesn't run but If you say I can I'd love to post stuff I did to it :D

I painted my interior black as well. looks great and is durable for the most part. key notes of wear are the door handles and the armrest. had to paint them a few times. highly suggest clear coating.

just gonna come out and say it... I have something for the spi you should buy

Once you clean up the wiring in the trunk and possibly relocate your amp, then your trunk will look good. I like the fact that you used black on your interior, it looks good, but as sixshooter said, it will wear off, especially on your armrest unless your missing an arm. The last car that I had, i painted a LOT of things on the interior and exterior, it looked good for a while(i painted the interior black, it was brown on a MX3) it wore off real quick on the areas that you are always touching... Something to keep in mind.

So I am a pic whore, you said it's ok to post pics so here ya go!







Since you have an SPI, I would def look into a rebuilt head, that doesnt have the valve seat issue before you go any further, then prolly source some Euro parts... Not a bad start, looks good

Could someone give me a start on where to look for parts. I live in the middle of hillbilly heaven and we don't have many part stores.
