well i got my paint to paint the chrome strip on the grille. I am a very slow paced worker and want to know if any problems could come about driving in the rain with the grille removed.

BIRDS!!!!! Instead of getting "grilled" they'll be poking holes in your condenser. :m2:

ok everything primed. Now to get a nice smooth look do i use some high grain sand paper and sand the primer before putting the final color on or do i just spray final color clear coat it then a gentle wet sand. Im a rookie here and just want to make sure i get it right.

ok it was a long weekend but i got the grille painted, debadged, resonator removed, and finally finished the stereo.

















next up mirror covers, bug deflector (gonna get clear and paint it black), try the whistler mod.

Quick question while bathing my TB today i noticed a chip in the paint on the roof starting to rust a bit. whats the best way to stop the rust and maybe cover this up a bit without re painting the whole roof but still make it look as unnoticeable as possible? thanks for the help hope you like.

Lookin Good :thumbsup:

I have a few chips on my Jeep from stones (i saw one hit while driving). I use duplicolor touchup paint. Dosen't look great but if uoy are careful and dont use alot of paint, it will be mostly only noticable to you. Be careful when sanding the rust but it all has to come off or it will come through the paint sooner or later.

I know there are guys here that have more experience with chips than me.
