before anyone asked, this is the boss's car and he has a thing for jets, so here we go. I baby-sat the car while he was at the beach and had the grills blacked out and the rear piece. here's the pics at sunrise, check it out:

nice pics.

Why didn't he black the rest of the grill trim out?

Yeah, I'm doing black grilles. And I'll have to find a G5...

well, none of us liked the total black out look, but, there's a lot more prep to painting over chrome and it would have been laborious, like the rear trunk piece was. The mesh part of the grill is painted silver so its easy to prep and paint...making sure to have a healthy portion of clear to protect from rock chips.

ha...we "presented" the framed pics to the boss yesterday and he said...where's the Citation? Oh well, settled for a Lear. What's funny is this is the home base for Phoenix Air which flies the tiger striped jets that contract w/ the Gov't for dog fight and manuevers, and was hoping some of those would be on deck.
