Just a quick question. If every other thing on the outside of your car (minus wheels) is black, why did you get a chrome shorty antenna?

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

I am planning on painting it black in the summer when i redo my bowties...hasnt been warm enough yet, and i bought it chrome bc it was extremly cheap. It is for a ford focus and i paid 5 bucks for it...it gets better signal and is shorter than the avg shorty antenna for the balt that is $25-30.

looks absolutely beautiful. love the clean look, but dont you hate when rain is nowhere in the forecast except right after you wash your car? what kind of paint did you use for the dash trim pieces and how much did it cost? nice car though.

They were chrome over the summer but the paint didnt stay very well over the winter so The front one is still semi-chrome and the back has been sanded down, they will be re-done over this summer. Thanks!

No, Once I saw the clouds moving in I said no to waxing....But I use the rainex wash and wax soap and it works wonders.
