Just got home from getting the black plastic around the bottom of the car painted to match the body. I can tell that I need to get more of that double stick foam to put around the back sides of the molding because with the car being white, any curves in the plastic are very noticeable. I also put tint on and changed the stripes to black a few weeks ago. (sorry for the crappy phone pics)





I also had the fuel door painted to match.

Love the fact you have thought it out and have a clear vision of what you want to do. So many folks just start doing stuff then realize they have about 3 or 4 different themes going.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your progress.
