    New pics of my recent cosmetic changes to my V. :)

    Finished the front and rear end of my V over the weekend. Did the Upper/Lower grill, Fog/turn lamps, 2" border around headlamps, marker lamps, tail lamps, reverse lamps and 3rd brake light. Next weekend will be doing the wheels and lowering 2". Then the following next few weeks will be installing my headers and cam.

    Thanks!

    Nope, bumper is stock. I used a 3 stage prime, base coat (cosmos black) and clear coat. Lens I lightly sander, mixed a little more diluted and used 3 coats on the lens. I still need to wet sand and buff but wanted to make sure it was completed cured as it was 50 deg outside (60 or so in my garage) when I painted.

    Black always looks good . . and a little extra is better.

    Btw raking leaves with 20+ tree's is the equal to pissing in the wind.

    Yup, I get so many leaves in front of the garage door,
    I'm afraid the catalytic converter will ~"lite me up"~
    I removed them 5 times this year. Next day I come out of the house to see my good job and . .
    MORE LEAVES -
    -What a sucky job . .

    I should lose the deciduous trees & replace with evergreens.
