Just took some quick pics in my backyard bc I didn't want to get stuck out and about if the weather changed. It's hard to get distant shots b/c one of the carport pillars is right in the middle. But you get the idea. Will get some better pics once the sun comes back...

I commented over on lxforums... should of waited here it is again.

Those look great on the car!

Couple of mechanical things. Didn't look like you masked the lug holes. That's really going to mess with the lug torque. You should check your lugs frequently for a while. and I wonder what that did to your wheel balance.

Thanks for bring it over here! So what type of paint did you use? I was thinking of doing something like this.

Wow, you're really out of it . It's the Plasti-Dip craze. That coating you find on tool handles/grips. It goes on really easily, sticks to anything with no prep coatings/treatments, and when you're done with it you can peel it off with no after effects. Even paint apparently. Seems that the peeling off part can be more or less of a pain depending on how large the bits are when you pull on them. Kind of like peeling a label off something -- sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you do a lot of picking.

Rattle cans. Some do whole body parts and even whole cars. Yikes!
