:) Hey. So I'm still pretty new on the forum, and figured I'd post some pictures of my balt. She's still a work in progress, but let me know what ya think.

She needs washed, but it was supposed to rain this day so I didn't wash her.


I have to give credit to my ex for etching this...


I have to give him credit for helping me with painting the interior too.

Now what is a guy to do, he did all that for you and you blew him off.
Not a fan of the etched bowtie, but your interior looks real good. The black hood line could have gone to the interior of the grill instead of exterior but it passes. Have you tried taping off the center crossbar to see how it would look in black?

Get a can mixed at Sherwin Williams to match your car then throw 3 or 4 coats of clear on there.

I went to a shop that matches my color (for the interior) and used that, rattle can. I forgot to mention that my hood is painted black because when I got the car there were deep scratches on it. It's just temporary until I get a new hood. I used rustoleom on my hood. My ex did it for me because he liked my car as much as me, and I asked for his help.

Thanks for your inputs :)

How much did that can cost? and what code did you tell them for the color?

I can't remember exactly, it wasnt more than $20. I found my exact paint code online, and gave them that. I sense you are preparing something, and I can't wait to see the end results. :)

Yeah, but I'm not worried about the look right now. Like I said before, its just temporary. I'm happy with the results, especially since its from a rattle can.

one last question to, Was one can enough for all the trim? and how many coats did you do?
Thanks for the help btw.
One can was just enough (we messed up here and there, so had to redo some pieces). We did two coats per section. And no problem :)
