Plastidip is a DiY project. Do not dip your grille - it will look like sh1t. No car has ever looked good with a painted grille(or dipped)

You can find it at home Depot or Lowes, etc. But if you want any color other than black, you will have to go here:

I saw a pic on here of a white hatch back with a white grille. I thought it looked good... I'll try to find it later

Looks bad. Like it was in a wreck and they just painted over it.

Are you referring to the grille part?

A lot of Ace Hardware stores carry the other colors of plastidip. Got my white and red from Ace.

Suspension is not hard. Come to one of our monthly meets in Houston and we could probably change it for you. Its not hard.

This. Get it from Tousley - $300. I've had mine for about a year now...love it.

How do you like that short antenna? I'm worried reception will go down, even though I'm in a huge metro area.

Took my antenna completely off and it made absolutely no difference for me. My reception was still just fine.

To be fair, I needed to replace my suspension at the time anyway.

Where'd you get the antenna? Ebay?
