Update Have an appointment this Thursday to get SSydeny tinted. Im either going with 20% or 35% madico charcool. When i show up for my appointment i can look at the samples prior to installation and make my decision. Cant wait to see her with some shades

SSydeny looks great. I am following the progression of your build. You have some great ideas.

Thanks!
It's honestly not as scary as it seems. The thought of applying some pressure to the paint with a machine can be frightening but after watching lots of the videos from Adams polishes on YouTube even myself being a novice at this I still was able to achieve great results. It's sure not 100% perfect but it's 100% better then when I first started off. This is a very easy process and involves no guess work plus its very rewarding when you step back and say wow! Look at that shine

Update:
Had the tail light bezels plasti dipped for awhile now and liked it but i had some drips and globs on the bottom of it here and there. Decided to just spray paint them gloss black. I was never a fan of the chrome anyways so i figured what the hell. I must say they look 10x better then being flat black. It fits the car so much better and really brings out the tail lights more.

Thanks! Its slowly getting there
Very very easy to paint, Used some valspar gloss black spray paint.

1st coat was a very light dusting
2nd coat was heavier spray
3rd coat was medium spray
4th coat was hitting it in spots that showed some chrome specs.

I'm a matte black bezel man myself Chris, but whether matte or glossy, it still looks better than the plasti-chrome The gloss looks great!

You know I'm moving back to NJ May 1st, and I'll be starting the East Coast chapter of the HeadTurners, so I'm sure we'll be crossing paths brotha!
