      used rustoleum bumper and trim paint. tired of the sides of my car looking so bad. also redid the rear valance since only half was painted and retextured after some rust repair.

      leaving the front valance alone for now since i have a new one on the way.

                thanks. windows tinted today. couldn't handle it without tint. 20% all around.



                now it NEEDS some shadowline trim. this chrome is terrible.

                            dyed my rear deck lid. had to replace the 3rd brake light. so i figured i'd clean up this area while i was back there. also installed new speakers, old stock ones were shot.

                            before:





                            first coat:




                            installed new speakers while first coat soaked in:



                            5 coats later, nice and dark black. will post another pic when back in the car.

                              have been debating on doing all my body work myself, fixing scratches and door dings and rock chips and all the rust. after some minor rust repair i attempted fixing this area today because it was bothering me, and it turned out great so far. i think i'm going to paint the entire car myself :)

                              the lower rusty lower valance has already had its cancers removed and new metal welded in and repaired. now time for the upper area.



                              wet sanded and masked off





                              first coat of primer



                              second coat of primer



                              may wetsand and do 1 more light coat of primer, wet sand again then put on real paint x2 then gloss :)
