Alright done, so what do you guys think thumbsup or thumbsdown. Honest opinions. I plan on getting either a APR strut bar or a RMM one. I'm leaning towards the RMM but we'll see with time. Ok thanks for all comments ahead of time happywink wave

Thanks a lot Marco, yeah i know ur name!! rofl Alright now in response to your questions. yeah i did the paint job myself, with help from my dad. You notice how that the VVT-i lettering is still red? that's not a vinyl overlay as many assume, all my dad did was put masquing tape over it, get a razor blade and cut around the tape, and he left it on while we painted it, then simply took it off when we were done!! Alright now about the paint, the paint I used is "Testors spray enamel", color "Dark Blue" and code #1211. I picked my can up from the local Michaels arts and crafts store, im sure you can find one near ur house as well!! Good luck, hope i helped! thumbsup thumbsup

I painted it myself. They cylinder head cover came stock, and i like it because it covers my DC Sports Headers, so nobody can really tell that I have them, but when they get in the car they can feel that it's there!!

That's cool bro, yeah its model paint, and ur exactly right. THe clear coat is a high-heat finish, since it tends to get hot under the Hood usually lol!!! ill try find the name/brand of the clear coat i used, but later on because rite now i have to go whip out my smooth gardening skill and mow the lawn!!!! rofl rofl rofl

nice pics! do you have any plans for a body kit? i think ww would look hot and you can have them paint the middle of the lip black, i think it would go good with the the vinyl on ur Hood.

did you do the paint job yourself?
i need to know what color blue that is and what type of paint i think it would look nice on my car too thumbsup

Thanks a lot Marco, yeah i know ur name!! rofl Alright now in response to your questions. yeah i did the paint job myself, with help from my dad. You notice how that the VVT-i lettering is still red? that's not a vinyl overlay as many assume, all my dad did was put masquing tape over it, get a razor blade and cut around the tape, and he left it on while we painted it, then simply took it off when we were done!! Alright now about the paint, the paint I used is "Testors spray enamel", color "Dark Blue" and code #1211. I picked my can up from the local Michaels arts and crafts store, im sure you can find one near ur house as well!! Good luck, hope i helped! thumbsup thumbsup


I work at michales. I will look for this stuff next time I go in which is Sunday. That would be cool if they had it casue I would get 40% off. grin But dose it w/stand heat. Also dose it come in a spray can cause ive never seen that brand.
