Thanks....Yeah i wrapped the Lip in Vinyl first to see if i liked it....a year later i sanded it put about 10 coats of Duplicolor on it and 5 coats of clear. Turned out pretty good. Figured it didn't have to be perfect seems it's easy to scrape sometimes.

Right now the clear is chipping off the rear bumper....the sun just kills this red paint.

But for now next thing going on is my 2nd timing belt, red intake couplers (CFM) & a freshly powdercoated red valve cover. Stock clutch is still holding, but my new LuK kit with axle seals, flywheel bolts & a few other pieces will go on in the future.
