It was. Now it's a mix of blue, white primer, and black plastic. I really want to keep it the same color but I haven't figured out how to make it last. The biggest problem is that the lip flexes on impact resulting in the paint cracking and flaking off. It didn't help that last week I had to drive through a ditch six times with the lip scraping across the ground each time.

you can get a flexible paint and primer for that lip, similar to the stuff that is used to paint 4wheelers

I've thought of that but I'd still have to paint over that to get the right blue. It might be better but still wont be great.

I ran tint most of last year and I have my fogs on most of the time without any problems that weren't connected to the clear coat. The only problem I had with the tint was that it didn't take long to turn a slight purple because of the heat but it still didn't show to bad.

I washed the car yesterday and stopped for some pictures before work. I also did a bit more pin striping and stickers, but one sticker and the pin striping on the hood will probably come off again today. I'm also doing some work on the rear Ford badge so that will be changing soon. And yes, I'm having way too much fun right now.
