Thanks, I was going to buy one from RBI, but it's $50ish. So does this mean I can go to my local body shop, ask them to mix RJT and put it in a spray can? That sounds like it would be cheaper. What prep to the surface did you do? Other than just cleaning it did you have to rough it up a little to get the paint to stick?

I lightly roughed with 300 grit then cleaned with alcohol. The RJT spray is expensive. I had some left over from doing my interior trim pieces so I didn't go out and have to buy a new can. If you have other stuff to paint the same color it would be cost effective to do your dipstick, otherwise it might cost you $50 for primer, base and clear!

Thanks, that was all I was going to paint. I guess it would be cheaper and easier just to buy one.

How do you like the cam? Did you install it or Ted? It sounds badass with the cam and headers!!

Congratulations on COTW!!!
We knew it had to happen soon.
It's just that there is a loose definition of "soon" on C5.

Congrats on car of the week bud. To those who haven't had the pleasure of witnessing this ride up close, this is one awesome machine for sure.
