do like the nascar guys do and paint all the stuff on that is not really there. that would be funny. maybe put fog lights on it (painted of course).

I actually like it. I wish I could have made it more flush but the fact that is inset makes it not stick out so much to me (no pun intended). it is really clean right now and maybe with some dirt (just driving it around) it will blend in better.

who knows, I may even wash the thing now. then again maybe not.

It looks better than mine, but then again I don't care if mine looks ghetto. I still have to get a picture of my block off.

That doesn't look too bad, I could handle this if it were on my car, for the most part.

pig,

honestly, that looks pretty good. I was lucky on my car because of the color. white is white is white. I just went and got some krylon fusion and went to town.

another option (depending on how much you care) is duplicolor from autozone. it will match up with your paint and you can get it in a spray can. like I said it may not be worth it to you thogh. I think the little spray cans are a little expensive and I don't think they go very far.

Yeah, I thought about getting some of that duplicolor paint, but I'm not sure how well it would hold up on the aluminum flashing. It doesn't bother me though, I'm not really concerned with the looks of the car, hahaha. It's completely stripped inside, which I did to see how much weight effects overall mpg's, and I can say for certain that it is not as important as gearing and engine displacement. The next car HAS to be a manual.

as long as you primer it first, I think it would stick.

time will tell on mine. I haven't gotten so far as to take out weight out of my car. I have instances where 4 other people ride with me. it isn't often but it does happen so I have to be able and willing. I do plan to play with underbody panels. (partial belly pan)

The aluminum flashing I had on the CRX was painted flat black to help match the colors it was when I put it on (woodland camo and rust). Rocks would hit it and knock the paint off, making little silver divots in the sea of black. Ick.

Now, with the car painted lighter blue, I painted the G.B. silver with a light gray primer. It doesn't show through now. I'm sure there are divots, but I can't see them.

All hail silver paint over light gray primer on aluminum!
