got my glossifier today. Plan on using it on the fangs to match the gloss black front stock. Maybe I will give myself black gloss hood stripes to see how it looks too. Watched a few videos on glossifying black rims. One coat is noticeable, 4-5 is like wet shiny black. dipyourcar has the metalizers, glossifiers, etc.

That's to choose your own color. So it's custom.

Just got off the phone with a guy down at DipYourCar.com. Got some good info I needed from them and FonZie is gonna call me back in a day or two with some more in depth knowledge on my projects. Should be placing my order with them this week or next to get things started. I'm gonna play around with photoshop in a few to see if I can put together a basic drawing of what I'm planning on doing (my focus and wife's escape). If all goes well with the install then I'll be applying with them to be an authoriZed install for dipyourcar in the KC area.

well if you are doing emblems, be sure to spray the bottom of the emblem. I did them and my rear deflectors today, and while the deflectors came out perfectly and peeled around them perfectly, the emblems peeled off in places with the tape. So I just took it off completely. Lesson learned. Granted when i took it off, it was coming off in one piece. I'd post a pic of my fail but my smart phone is being a complete piece of shit right now

Edit: Don't mind my thumb. It was coming off on the S too. Also the emblem is barely on the car. It is stickied on the ends and that's about it. WTH reflector pic coming in a secong



Reflector:


Tomorrow is when it gets interesting. Also Home Depot has cans for $6.00 (black and red), nobody had white though.

That's fine, as I will pass one on the way to work. Either that or I have to buy it online. Thanks for the tip. If they don't have it I probably won't worry about it though.
