As you can see, I ned to get that front lip painted, or get the new bumper I want. :)

Hey KB I'm liking the "White Knight". Looks hella clean. How did you get your tails to go all red? Which spray did you use. I saw some in an aftermarket store but I wasn't sure if it was any good. I was thinking about smokin' mine but I dont wanna get harrased anymore by the POPO.

By the way if you ever come across door panels with cream leather inserts let me know.

Holla

Nice G, same color scheme as mine. =)

On that black bumper section have you tried the mother's product called back-to-black. If not I'd suggest trying it out, I haven't had to use it on my car yet, however i've used it on sections of my dad's Z and it restores the black trim very nicely.

Yep, those are the rims. :) I use a Nikon camera.


As for the black bumper, that is actually primer you see there. I dont know how it got there, but its there. I just either need to sand it down and paint it black, or get a new bumper. :cool:

Nice Car! Ive got a QN0 as well...its a good color, and soo pretty up close---btw, if you want the paint to match exactly, youre gonna have to fork up a good bit, its a triple-layer paint process:(

Mike.com, what kind of wheels are those on your G in your avatar?

Yup gotta love QN0. :D

They are Saab 900 wheels. My car pics are in my sig. I haven't taken any new pics with my Primera emblems and some other new stuff I did. ;)

Yeah, I ran into this when i had the factory spoiler painted.... From what i understand they actually have to use 3 different paints (layers) to achieve this one color. It's pretty tough to match too, luckily the place I took it to did a pretty good job. You really can't tell a difference until you get really close up that you notice a very slight difference in the paint (the spoiler is just a hair lighter). Cost of just the paint alone is quite a bit, and labor is going to suck too because of the time required to spray on all the layers and match the color. :-\

yeah the pearl is a 3stage paint (something like base coat, metalic pearl, and clear) so it costs money! my m3 spoiler cost $350 to prime and paint and thats not that big of a peice

Do you know if the paint can be purchased by someone like myself?
