Cool! Can't wait to start painting everything. Gotta pick up some more primer/clear coat too.

I'm leaving the interior panels alone. I saw someone's blue interior "accents" with my color blue, looked pretty ricey. And I like the interior how it is stock for the most part; the only the i would change is that it would be a uniform dark grey or black. So that may be a later project.

Thanks man! If that ends up being 20-30 dollars cheaper than around here, then i will make a little trip. It'd be worth it to make a little day trip to SF with the money i save on tint.

Another update. I found a shop called "Automotive Color" and it turns out the paint was 40 for a pint and then i got 2 cans (10 bucks each) so i don't have to go back right away for them to fill the cans again. The paint will be coming on Monday and then next weekend i will be painting my trim/ground effects/mirror caps body color. And i will also be painting my door handles gloss black like my mirror housing/c-pillar is
