This is the same thing that I did. Notecards are cheap and work very well for this. Like stated above the final outcome is 80% the result of preparation. Don't rush it and it will turn out great. I actually had several cans of the duplicolor gunmetal and clear coat and was going to do it with actual paint. But then I decided to do it plastidip gunmetal because if I ever wanted to change it i could just peel it off. and if you curb it you just hit the spot where you curbed it with a little black then fade it with a little of the metalizer and you cannot even tell it is flawed(=

Thanks! They are all four about the color of the back wheel in that photo now. Not to different colors as they were in that pic.

Honestly I love the chrome with the grille and headlights.

Everything else is tinted or dark, It looks good in person!

I definitely had to lose the chrome mirror caps though....




Such an improvement....

I thought that oo at one time but when I finally did color match everything with the dark chrome tails, it gives it a much sleeker sportier look.

Then and Now

Maybe some day, I just bought my first house.

So long to the privilege of being able to buy any toy I want at any time...
