sorry it was gray, but the factory bumbers never match that well and with the adddition of all the parts,ground effects and custom stripes i thought it all needed to be completly re painted to match. plus i clear coated it twice.. sanding in between each coat, to get that ultamate flat glass look. pictures really dont do it justice...

Paint looks great. You really need to get some tire shine for those tires though.

my stock panels where cloth..1SS OPTION CAR...
so i removed them..
removed the cloth
cleaned off the glue
primered with pladtic etch
primered them
then painted black
then sprayed 3 colors onto matt
that you put in your toolbox withe squares open on it
then cleared them and sanded and recleared them
took awhile but its worth it..
