Finally Painted My Strut Bar

Im sure someone will say something stupid about how this should be in the "suspension section" but its more visual than suspension....

also I havent been on here in ages so SUP! (new and old members)

So I FINNNAALLY got around to painting my damn strut bar! been waiting forever but been so busy with work to do anything to my car blahhhhhh

anyway enough chit chat here it is... (sorry for the dirrrrty engine bay)

FYI when I bought it, it came with some grey gunmetal metallic powder coating it looked cool but I felt this looks waaaayyy better.. its more...me! ha






id like to clarify before the questions roll in...

THIS IS ALL PAINT
THERE IS NO STICKER

wow that's clean, did you use stencils?

I have the same bar but without the nice paint job. Did you throw away the aluminum badge?

thanks!

yea im still around just busy... got some stuff in the works. More updates coming soon.

and no, No stencil... my strut bar came with some stickers so what I did was: I painted the middle or the bar green, then let it dry. Put the sticker where I wanted it to go. Then painted over the whole strut bar black. Then peeled the stickers off and then cleared it. Followed by a sand and polish. So thats the way it looks now! Took alot of time and precision lol but it came out nice im very happy with it!

Yes I still have the badge that came with it just got to find it lol
