I hate the new nozzle they put on the cans. I have an old can and I use that nozzle, much nicer pattern and easier to laydown with the old nozzle. I will be re-doing my wheels in the next few weeks after new tires. I would also like pics of the door panels.

So the old nozzle is pretty much just a standard nozzle? That's what it kinda looks like. So far I haven't had any issues with the new nozzle but I have nothing to compare it to since I don't have an old style.

I do find it kinda funny that both cans have the picture of the old cap on it. But in red...

I bought this SVT a few months ago and wanted to change up the looks. I dipped the wheels, grills, and lip in black. The badges and side markers are done in smoke plasti dip.

jon, the fat cap is easier on the fingers to use. but i never tried the smaller cap with the dip.
