So some of you might remember the pics i posted the last time and i inquired about what you guys thought about painting my rims orange or just painting the lip orange. well i came home for a week and had time so i decided to go through the thing and fix areas that need to be fixed and then paint the rims. Well here you go, let me know what you think.(BTW i still need to wet sand em and then spray the clear coat, and ill have pics of the car off the jackstands probably sunday).

Started by removing the interior and carpet as there were some things that needed to be fixed.

You are an AutoX guy right? I think it goes real well with the theme of the car. O0

the rims look good. You need orange stripes to finish it off. I love white w/ tangelo stripes :pimp2:
