went outside today and did some work, was looking kinda sad and realy dirty. brakes looked horrible so used the duplicolor caliper paint see hows it holds up heard it chips after a while but my dads mustang had it on for about a year and still looks good and finnaly decided to paint my grill and give her a good wash.


Before


After




Before

justed justed some whitewall tire cleaing and scrubed the hell out of it
After










The white reflecting off the front bumper is the white of the house


broke the old emblem but it was looking pretty bad so went out and got a new one, going to be making an order from NAIOA shop thinking black insert with red out line, the door sill decail and the NAIOA logo for the back window. Waiting on the plate filler to come in think im going to repaint black and do the words red. next weekend going to paint the wheel wells and give her a good wax. What do you guys think and opinions?

I take the negative off, then between sprays I use compressed air to blow out the connections and remove the water from spots it like to pool.

Never understood why ppl block it out online, I mean do you blur it out while driving down the road or when you park somewhere?
