Looks pretty good man! I'd put lowering springs next on the list
Yea, you usually gotta get pretty low to make the wingless look really work
New Black Goodies
First is my new fuel door provided by my girlfriend
Next I painted my grill emblem to match.
Great work man! The red and black compliment each other well! I've been wanting that fuel door too for my ride
There you go!
Looks good! The pony was rather well painted. I remember when I re-did mine I didn't look anywhere as clear and smooth as that.
Hate to admit it but I've also considered that exact fuel door for my car lol.
also considered that fuel door lol. looks good though!
With all the painting going on i figured i would also respray my wheels. I did this to just make my wheels look cleaner for the meantime. I plan to buy another set of wheels soon but i couldnt take the discoloration. I did 3 coats grey and two coats clearcoat. Will post better pics soon. I couldnt take any right after i was done on account of rain.
Quick comparison shot
Rear Passenger painted
Front passenger unpainted
Couldnt get the front wheels off so i had to use the notecard/ bag to cover the breaks method
before and after pictures should be switched
The top one almost looks neochrome in this picture. Very well done. It's the small things that count.
You did a great job, however I would be concerned more with not being able to get the front wheels off.
Yeah I was too at first but then I just figured that I can take it to a shop or someone that has a power drill with the lug nut attachment to power it off.
As i promised. Better pictures!!
I love the sparkles in the paint lol
Overall a cleaner look i think.
Much better, now scour craigslist for different wheels in the future lol. And start working on getting it lowered!
Looks good man. I would recommend getting yourself a breaker bar or a cheap electric impact. They sure make things easier
want to paint my wheels too? LOL good job
Great job on freshening up the wheels! Keep up the good work
While waiting for my springs to arrive i thought i might freshen something else up on Miranda
Side view Mirrors!! 3 coats black 2 coats clear.
I feel like i did pretty good for my first masking job
Last coat Wait for dry
Arent imperfections the greatest -_-
Please tell me that's not a wash with wax in it!?!?! If so this paint will not last and will explain the fish eyes you showed as "imperfections".
If your going to wash a part before paint your best using a dish detergent like dawn as it will cut through the wax and your fingerprints.
You should always scuff the part first with an scuff pad then you can clean it and prep it to paint. This will best promote adhesion and give you a smooth paint job.

You may get lucky but I don't think it will stick well. I would have actually sanded them down with some 600 to get rid of the grit and make them smooth, they come out looking a lot cooler that way! Just a tip
