    Not bad at all, just wish it matched the stock black a little more.

    It you heat the can up in warm water first you will get a smoother surface. Use 3-4 layering technique and not all in 1-2 shots. You can smooth out what you have with some thinner; forget what it's call at the top of my head. Checkout the YouTube videos for more guidance. I'm doing all my exterior emblems now and so far so good.

    what he said lol... im very careful not to scratch it in any way.. especially when turning the temp. knobs... there's a small knick on mine already, and its killing me! looks better since you have an aftermarket radio.. mine is still a big silver square in the middle of my center console....

    wheels look good.... are you painting your calipers? they would really stand out since the wheels are black....

    I'd love to do my calipers but i'm not sure what color I should do them? My mud flaps have the 'blue" accent on them but I honestly don't think blue would look that good. Can anyone photoshop some blue and red ones for me so I can see the difference?
