    lol... the idea of this post was to show the paint of the cover and the carbon fiber painted shock tower cross over... just to give others ideas - and to show off the stuff i like to do (and get paid for - lol)
    Oh it looks awesome too lol

    have been wanting to try using plasti dip on my car, and thought the carbon fiber hood look would be a nice change, and then added some red to fender for color.

    it came out well and i have been suprised how many people have approached me asking questions ... it was easy to only took about 2.5 hours and the cost was very reasonable.

    im a big GM fan... so the fender stripes were just to add a touch of color, and to drive a friend crazy that i put them on my cady lol...

    short story: kid is a really nice guy, body builder type, entire body tatted up, lives at home, mom does his laundry and prob still takes him to the doctors... (lol if your reading this bro, you know i love ya lol) he doesnt own anything! but a i phone (his dad gave it to him when he up graded) and he needs a new car - so he goes to the local used car lot and the owner is selling his corvette - my friend buys it... fyi - we live in the snow belt - so he bumbs rides over the winter.

    funny part is he reasoned he would finally get a girl friend with the car - guess what he did! lol and amazingly enough she is hotter then the car!

    lol

    and the carbon fiber SS stripes and the GS stripes are just plasti-dip paint - (home-depto 6 dollars a can, black, grey and clear (glossifier) and 12 bucks for the mat that goes under the rug so you dont slip when you walk on it... one roll of good painters tape 10 bucks, and 2.5 hours of taping and painting, pulling tape off and retaping, pulling tape off and retapeing and poof you have puesdo carbon fiber "looking" paint, and when you get board of it just peal it off and expose undamaged paint.) ill attach a video - guy paints his car with pearl white paint... and a second video of diff guy pealing it off with out any damage.

    I bought my 2008 SRX4 V6 in August and am still really enjoying it...my only issue is the passenger side front airbag is off about half the time with someone sitting there...I plan to take it in to the dealer but other than that I find mine quick enough, decent gas mileage, roomy enough (I'm 6'6" and long leg'ed) and handles great...
