Looks great man. I still need to paint my sideskirts.

Now, wash your car!!! That close up of the emblem shows some serious waterspots/dirt.

For the emblem we just sanded off the blue with some light sand paper, polished it up, and then painted it with the same paint we did the sideskirts in. :)

looks great man.

Where did you get the paint and what is the brand and color code?

I have the same exact setup (04 SRR wagon) so I'm curious. Thanks.

Yes I painted everything myself, this was the first time I had done any auto painting, but I just followed the instructions on the spray can and it worked out great.

I got the paint from http://www.paintworldinc.com/carlink.html, It requires:
1 can of primer (Bulldog Adhesion Promoter)
3 cans of San Remo Red (some people say 2 but I had to use 3)
2 cans of clear coat (Acrylic Spray Clear)
and some VERY light sand paper to sand down any drips before the clear coat goes on.

They don't have SRR listed so you just have to go to this page http://www.paintworldinc.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=SHE_SB and put in color code 22G. The trick to making them look right is a lot of layers of clear coat (light,then heavy, then light, then heavy, etc)
