        I normally use John Deere blitz for trim paint and such. Very durable and has a nice dull finish, very similar to that of OEM stuff.

          My car is a slut for this and would be happy to oblige. I live in Leschi neighborhood of Seattle.

            i'll have to try that next time. possibly re-do the bumpers of my pathfinder with that since it was always super flat looking paint.

              Works excellent, but you have to make sure not to touch your prepped areas with your bare hands or have any chemicals in the air, or the paint will fish eye. Kind of tedious prepping, but worth the extra time.

                I did my rockers and lower rear bumper with 3M rubberized undercoating. They just sort of disappear into the road below. I love the look. Just make sure it's clean, rust free, and prep with acetone.

                    I sanded and then used SEM Primer and Trim paint IIRC, worked perfect both times and held up to the beating. If you sand just make sure you wipe it off after sanding, like AJ said, some sort of acetone or other chemical.

                      3m undercoating for the win, that shits great.

                          Speaking of crazy, was in Denver last week for work and got t-boned in my rental car. The other guy was doing about 40. My car spun 540 then tipped onto the drivers side before coming to rest back on the wheels.

                              Fuck, that sucks!

                              S52 HG popped?! That's lame. Didn't Joseph just install that motor? I'm alright, getting ready to start putting my other car together soon.
