How long was the install time and was it pretty straight forward?

Wow! You're tooling up pretty darn fast. The weather in the Bay Area is like a winter runny nose that drips every day. I washed and waxed all day yesterday and it's still gray and rainy out. Ugh.

I really like Lio's plastic dipped front fascia above the splitter. Give the car a mean front-end look.

Does anyone have tips on where to buy Plastidip and how to apply it? Is is just mask and spray or is there more to it than that?

1LE Emblems

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep these. For the photos I attached with painters tape. Looking for your honest feedback, gang. Smash it or trash it!?

I was surprised when I clayed my car how many blemishes there were in the paint. The M205 polish and Porters Cable orbital polisher removed that stuff. Anyone else clay their car and notice the pain imperfections?

Yep... STILL working on the paint. The emblem looks ok but a painted 1 may be better. The DIY section here has a great plastidip thread.

The 1 is black. I didn't want bright red to challenge the crystal red.

Will get a close up.

Tram, i was planning on the mirrors as well! Lol...since I don't have my car yet I plastidipped my wash buckets yesterday so my roommates know that those are for washing only. But it was a good excuse to see how the dip performs and looks, since I never used it before. Someone asked where to buy - I got it at Home Depot for $5-6 per can, which should cover 5-10sq ft depending on number of coats. If you want colors other than matte black, try dipyourcar.com...think that was the site. They actually have a lot of colors, but can't ship directly to Hawaii, and retailers here won't special order less than a whole box :(

They look good. Wonder if they would paint the 1 similar to our CRT color?

Now, I just need to figure out how the F to line these up before I stick them on permanently.

Does anyone have any tips or suggestions? What you're seeing the photo is temporary and affixed using painters tape.

Here's what Roger Neace from EmblemPros told me ... I picked Black based on this exchange and the fact I have a CRT car ....

Even on the ZL1 pieces it is red.
On a CRT paint vehicle, they would still be red.

All colors attached. Take a look at them and let me know.

Thanks, Roger
