    Talking Another CETA Mod. done thread ... GEEZ!!!

    Did the job but not so well ... ... there were cracks in the bumper/paint (the main reason I decided to do this; to cover that shyzer up) and when I wiped it all off with thinner (to get the wax/etc. off), it had soaked into the cracks. So and even after I washed and wiped, used a tack cloth on it and then applied the adhesion promoter ... it was still evaporating and when I applied the color, it started bubbling in those places. ****! Lost interest after that ... Did what I can for now, looks decent from far but I know the next time I wash it, it's gonna flake off in those areas. **** ****! Gonna have to get the whole rear end prof. painted in the future 'cos the bumper and p/s fender seem have have been painted with a quick and crappy paint job in the past. For now, I'm just glad it's satin finish (used SUV/Truck bumper paint from a rattle can), I can keep touching it up














    Now, need to re-mount the exhaust tips and it'll be ready to go!

    Bought them at Pepboys I think. Each ramp is two peices that clamp into place for storage but it's too hard to take them apart so I just stack them vertical. They're also plastic jic you wanted to know.

    Looks good man. I had the same exact problems even with the passenger side fender but so far my bumper has not cracked or flaked.

    Looks good. I've been wanting to do the roof and ceta on mine, but I just don't have the balls to screw up the paint just yet.

    Mine was already screwed up and yellowed around the tips from the exhaust, so it was easy to take the plunge ... lol
