Painted my wheels, calipers, fogs, antenna, corners (56k... nope)

Well after many days of sanding, taping, and painting, my wheels are finally painted. I still need to clear them (damn humid new jersey weather, no dry days to do it). I also took the time to paint my fog lights yellow, did a little custom paint on the side markers, painted the antenna base silver, and painted my calipers dark red. I didn't want to paint them the fire engine red that stands out, I wanted something less flashy. I also cut off my rear resonator (lunchbox) and added the ST rear exhaust pipe section. I like the way it sounds, nice and deep. The video doesn't do it justice since it sounds raspy and high pitched. Let me know what you guys think.


I opened the clear corners up, painted them black, sealed them back up, and then added the silver trim on the outside and gave them a coat of clear.




The one finished wheel, cleared and center cap back in.



And how my car sits right now...



And here is the video of my exhaust...

Looks great man. Not digging the stickers, but to each his own.
Love the side markers.
