I hate the flat black trim on the 2012 lower bumpers and side skirts and I hate the shiny lunchbox peeking out from under the rear bumper like a fat girl’s thong. So I decided to paint it all, trim silver and lunchbox black. It came out pretty nice! Doesn’t match perfectly, but I couldn’t find exact matched paint and it is good enough for me. Check it out:









Nice touch! Y'know, I'm getting kind of sick of that craplastic look, too... How'd you do it? I see in one of the shots that your side skirt is missing. Any advice?

Cool! I've been thinking about it every time i look at my car. I sure wish would have done it on the higher trim levels at least.

Two new wheel concepts. I pretty much know what's going to final, what are your opinions...

Red?


Grey (would actually be body color)?


Red would final with gunmetal powdercoat, grey would final with gloss black powdercoat.

Will also post these in my build thread.[cheers]

X2, for your car color that would be Ideal, for my Race Red, then the Red and Black would work.[headbang][headbang][headbang][headbang]

I'm diggin' that concept dyn085! I would have never thought of that pattern.

Like stang74shelby said, using your paint color or close to it would be ideal.

Thanks! I'm trying to find concepts that others might be willing to use, just doing the leg-work.[thumb]

I'm loving the gray/black combo

The red ones IMHO would look better on a black car or a red car not so much a sterling gray. But like the concept of it [woot]

It was very time consuming, but not that difficult. I plan on making a How-to thread next week, I'll be sure to post a link here for you guys.
