    Pictures never do justice. I like it, but I'm sure it really shows in person.

    Nice man, got any pictures of the red on the car? Also how long did it take to remove your intakes and what kind of paint did you use?

    I like that blue in the pic.

    I wish mine turned out better, but I did mine myself and I have no pro tools.

    Here's mine and some FRC's that I did. I went with the stock color.

    Laser blue gets my vote if not leave the car black and get laser blue hockey stripes.

    I used Duplicolor

    Adhesive Promoter - x 2 coats
    Primer Gray - x 2 light coats, 1 medium cost
    NMB (28U) - x 2 light coats, 2 medium coats
    Clear Coat, High Gloss - x 2 light, x 3 medium

    I wet sanded between the medium coats of primer and color.

    I used 1000 grit between the 1st & 2nd medium coats on the clear.

    I used their automotive Filler Primer that can be sanded. On the can it states FP-101. I did not use any sealer.


    Also to fill the lettering I used an epoxy that could withstand high temps and that was able to be sanded. I can't remember the brand name off the top of my head.

    Too bad there isn't a photochop of a 98 in laser blue. I know that would look really nice. Or at least admiral blue or jetstream blue just visualise.
