And here I am trying to get the gunmetal look lol.
Looks nice. Take the "link back to photobucket" setting off your IMG codes. Better for us mobile users so we don't have to load a web page to see the pics :)

Good start dude! I told you, you could change the look of the car for around ~$200. What springs did you go with and have you decided if your going to install them??

looks good! did you apply some sort of clear on top of the plastidip? dirt (in this case, brake dust) LOVES to adhere to Plastidip. And it doesn't exactly "wipe" away. it just kind of smears lol. i have some household items I plastidipped white.

i've never applied a clear coat to any plastdip myself, but saw it mentioned on another thread.
