painting

You know...I did the same exact thing today, except I ran out of sunlight and my car has newspaper and tape on it.

I was painting my black trim to the color of the body (silver) It still looks funny with the flames and all....

When I want to make my own DIY, SVOboy spoils it!



Find Black Part, take off...



Take black part, rough it up with 320 grit paper, then tack cloth to get dust, and prime...



Find Arctic Silver and spray light coats. Then start throwing on a clear coat for protection


Put back on car and say, hey, is that an ex 4 door?!?

Very nice! I didn't mean to spoil anything, it's just I've got a whole hell of a lot more trim than you do. I'll have to put this in like 4 pages so people don't hate me for the load times.
