Well, I took advantage of the four day weekend and the awesomely, sunny weather yesterday and did some of my painting projects I've been meaning to get to. I ordered the match paint as per the paint code on my car. I knew I'd have a bit of a paint fade issue as the car is a few years old, but they still came out pretty well. I also did a DItY shorty antennae that came out well. I messed up the clear coat on my mirror caps so I had to redo them, but they came out the second time. It was clear today so I did a quick wash and dry to clean her up a bit.

Here's how she looked before:





Here's how she looks now:
The new shorty;







I still have more painting projects in the works that will have to wait for another day. [grinking]

looks better, get a drop tho :)
It's on my wish list.

Did you make that grill insert? I love it!!! Nice job on the paint
I didn't make it, but the guy I bought off of from eBay did.

Looks great man. A definite improvement. When are you gunna drop it?
Hopefully within the next three years. I know it's a wait, but I gotta save up for it along with some of the other mods I'm looking at. I want to drop it before I leave Washington. That's my goal.

looks really good. I'm glad my mirrors came painted, but unfortunately my hatch strip didn't and needs to be but nobody carries silver frost duplicolor where I live [rant]
