    How do you like your berger panel

    hey guys, i just got done with my berger panel. i did it my self with a rattle can of flat black. so far i love it but i was just wondering how it will look after some miles and sun. what do you guys think of yours who had them a long time. how does the paint hold up, and how do you go about cleaning them, like usual i assume. you dont wax it though right?

    did mine the same why almost a year ago and it is holding up great, i just use normal wash and a microfiber cleaning sponge, ive waxed it and it really had no effect on it....normally id just use spray wax on it rather than hand buffing it and ect

    i love mine as well. Mine has a shiny finish though and was professionally painted as well. Definitely makes the car look meaner.

    I love mine. Wouldn't change it for anything. Did it with a spray rattle can and put some clear a few coats of clear over it. Looks great to me

    it is super easy, just pull back the paneling and carpet in the trunk, unscrew the plastic wing nuts to take out the headlights, and then their is 4 nuts that hold it in, one in each corner and two in the center. done

    I just bought a used panel off of ebay. Now I just have to decide whether I want to go gloss black or semi gloss.

    It's supposed to be straight. No dings or damage. Guess I'll find out when it gets here.

    I bought a gloss black one out of a junkyard for $8 and liked the way it looked. Just for fun i scuffed it down and painted it semi-gloss and it still looks good, but i'm either going glossy or sticking with the stock one on my car. Not crazy about how the matte finish looks on white.

    I'm thinking the same thing. I'm leaning more toward gloss. But, having my original just in case either way seemed like the smart thing to do.

    do the glossy finish (and some white lettering), you'll like it much more
    Either that or keep it stock
