Plus the many others from different generations and the "Maximals"

Turned out okay... From 2 feet away it looks awesome, but the plastidip dried too quickly and 1 spot got screwed up. I like the look of it anyway and my OEM carbon fiber hood is going to look great with just the outsides painted the body color. The only problem with that right now is money. CD Silver is an expensive 2-stage paint, it cost me $500 for the bumper alone and it's going to cost $200 just for the outsides of the hood. Oh well soon...very soon!





Oh and I still need to nightshade the amber lenses behind the grille, or take them off - I haven't decided.

Nightshade them and they will be less noticeable. If you take them out will you put the stock grille back on?

No, I just did that for more lights. The turn-signals in the headlight housing work as turn signals only - they do not come on at any other time. I took the parking light wires and wired up the corners behind the grille to work as parking lamps only. If I take them out all I have to do is take the wires back to the turn signals.

Yeah, thanks. I am going to peel it off in a few days and redo it now that I know how this stuff works. Maybe I'll post a vid of my daughter peeling it off!

Oh and the close-up all those spots on the silver are pits from the stupid bra, I used some rubbing compound to make it as nice as I could before I plastidipped, but it wont matter soon anyway...hopefully. Maybe I should just practice doing custom graphics on the hood for now...
