Well for $45 and 5 hours of work (mostly time waiting for the stuff to dry) I say it was well worth it. Over all I am pleased how things turned out. I think it looks better than stock.

As far as the products I first put on 2 coats of Bulldog Adhesion Promoter. Waited 15 mins for it to dry after the second coat. Then I put on some Rust-Oleum gloss black plastic paint, just used as many coats as needed. Last was some Color Rite Clearcoat which I put on 2 coats as well.

Then after that I put on the vinyl overlays. I was in a hurry to do it since it was getting dark, they did not turn out as well as I hoped. They do look ok and I'm hope at least the big bubbles I couldn't get out come out in a few days. Finally the pics.

Looks good. Can't say I like the FRCs too much, but all in all looks good. I'm going to do the same thing on all my grills, but try and put a silver inlay around the middle grills....we'll see how it turns out.

The silver was all beat up on the FRC's. On top of that they got dirty too fast. It was a last min idea to paint them black, it dosen't look bad IMO. It'll do till I get around to buying CF ones.

Very nice Brett. I wish I was not so obsessed with power to spend more time cleaning up my cars look. Your cars overall look and attention to detail is show winning.

Thanks Mike, I wouldn't say show winning but I like to keep it clean lol. The car is pretty fast as it is... more than you need in a DD IMO. So I can afford to take some time and money to do other things to the car. I would prefer to have a well rounded car then a power monster. I really want to do a decent stereo in the car, but that's a lot of weight to add lol.

Papa Smurf FTW!

People first started calling me smurf back in the day when I would dye my hair blue. Then with the blue car, blue interior and blue headers Todd from AZP&S named the car Smurf. So I just went with it but named it Papa Smurf :)

It looks great... (I think you should repaint the fuel rail covers too.)
I'll redo them flat black if the gloss is the problem. I already said why I painted them black. I will not do silver or another light color, they get dirty and beat up too quick.

He has a 2006 now? Hmmmmm.

No I have not heard it. I was suppose to a long time ago when AZP&S had their grand opening. Though I never got around to it, I would like to hear it though since I'm kind of in the market for an aftermarket one.
