Paint and stuff...(questions)

OK, got a few questions for the veterans.

Where can I buy the paint needed to paint the calipers and drums on my car? how much? and what color will match my spectra blue car?

Also, which is a better way of painting them? taking them off and painting them as a whole, or leaving them on? and how long does this time take, is it a whole day job DIY?

Another question, Should I paint the stock black plastics that are around the car, like on the rear bumper, the black plastic "side skirts" and the lip on the front? and if so, where would I find the EXACT color of my car, Specra blue, in the store?

^^^^is that really worth while or should i save my money and just buy a body kit?

on to body kits, Which should I get?
1)BLitz
2)VS FFGT(would need to find a MUCH lower price than 2g's)
3)VSII (same perdiciment ^)
4)Kaminari(where can I find one around $800 instead of the 9-1g)


Well this is my questions for the week, feel free to answer any and ALL questions happywink

Paint the Calipers with the G2 Paint System.
As for body kits, you make it sound like you are on a budget, it this is the case, go with Wings West and you will not regret it.

the thing about the WW kit is that it goes onto the stock body, which my rear bumper is FUCKED up, i got hit by a hit and run in the target parking lot not too long ago, so i have a nice ass scratch and crack and stuff, so I'd end up either, trying to fix it or, buying a stock bumper off of someone just to use the WW kit, not my kind of fun wink lol

but if anyone knows how to fix this for fairly cheap, let me know, and i might consider it.


Btw, where do I buy the G2 paint system?

duplicolor just put out a caliper paiting kit that's pretty sweet. Make sure you clean em really well or it will look like ass! You don't have to take the calipers off, just make sure to mask everything around it with tinfoil of garbage bags or something. I'd say save your money and get a body kit. I'm getting the blitz personally, make sure you get a US spec one. Since there is no "authentic kit", you can come by them pretty cheap.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking body kit wise, but I don't want a Urethane kit, I want Full Fledged Fiberglass. know of a place?

yeah. IM hopupracing, thats the owner of hopupracing.com. Let him know I refered you to him. They are really great to deal with! Urethane has it's benefits, however the problem with the blitz kit in Urethane, is that since it's the biggest kit for the celi it tends to sag in the front after installation. SO Fiberglass is the way to go with this kit.

I totally agree with the way it looks, my friend has Urethane on his celi w/ the blitz kit, it tends to wiggle and wobble when he goes fast and shit and it sways a lot, but the only good thing, when he hits a curb or something a bit to close, it only bends instead of hearing that CRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAACK noise you get w/ Fiberglass, but I love fiber!

^ not if you want a more aggressive look. wink I like both of those kits, but prefer something more aggressive, that's why I chose blitz. I wish someone took up the project though...
