Candy Apple Red

Just tore all of the scratched up trim out of my balt, hoping this color goes well with the black interior and dosen't come across as edgy

I am going to do all the silver trim except what is on the radio as it is non removable.
Maybe I will suddenly stop being single!

I am glad someone likes it, but I also plan on wet sanding it and polishing and waxing it for that classy look

If you suddenly stop being single, don't expect to keep modding the car as much.

Eventually you can go with a double-DIN touchscreen, and that'll get rid of the silver radio face.

Touch screen radio is the way to go for sure. And yeah just make sure you give it a good clear coat then wet sand and polish it. I pulled mine out of the car and polished them up every time I was doing the body of the car, just shined one of the smaller pieces up the other day to see how it's holding up and still looks great

I did like 2 light coats of clear and one heavy one to sand down wet and polish. Do you have a polish you recommend?
