    Moonlight Blue of course ;D

    the difference is mine is super clean under that dirt and a daily driven 170,000 mi car. i was at a car show when i first joined the local club and one of the other club members asked if my rear wheel wells were powdercoated... my front ones are just as clean O0

    well like i said mine are really clean so i just spray them down with Simple Green/Water mix and run a retired chenille sponge through them by hand (granted, my rears have been painted with Rustoleum as well). if theyre bad sometimes you have to jack the car up and use a brush like the car i did today (thread; 3 Steppin' in the Shine Shop). anyway, i just wash them just like i wash everything else :dunno:

    i offer wheel well painting on my show details... the plastic wheel wells dont get painted though, its the brush and a lot of elbow grease!!

    it'll be a while on the repaint... still working on making enough money to build the motor, suspension and rear end. im gonna build from the ground up (sorta). im going in tomorrow to get new tires on the front and some new struts, had my CC plates installed the other day and sometime later this week, if i can make time, i'll get the SFC's and LCA's installed O0

    shes coming together though and im excited about that!!
