Looks good. Make sure those white seams don't have a texture to it, or it'll show through the paint.

Use the primer and the adhesion promoter on top of it.

Adhesion promoter then primer then colour then gloss. Sounds good?

You just need to know what color you need. Mine has aftermarket paint and the previous owner didn't let me know what color my was but I made a guess that it was quicksilver and indeed it was. Perfect match. Lol.

Yea I know we do. Lol. Once I put the splits on and your car dropped, then our cars well be identical. Would be funny if we both get projectors at the same time In the future too. Haha.

True that. I wouldn't mind having a 5sfte but then again. It's Cali. Lol.

Sorry for the late update. Been busy working. But here's how the trd rear splits turned out. Didn't fit perfect for some reason and I broke off the rivets on the right side brace while installing it.

Fiiinally tongue.gif You had yours painted a while before I got mine, but I've been driving around with mine fitted for a couple of weeks now tongue.gif

Its a shame that the color match wasn't perfect... But they still look good:) definitely needed on there to go with all that low and your front and skirts.

So now the race for the projectors are on tongue.gif Mine should be arriving in a week or two... But I won't be able to put them on until after exams finish mid-June... So you still have time tongue.gif

Yea it was a shame but it's ok. It was meant to look ok til my paint job in a couple of years. Lol. Im trying to get my hands on projectors too. Just looking around for a decent price. I'm not really looking forward to that hassle of removing the front bumper along with my front lip. Pain in the ass. Lol.

eh? front bumper isn't too bad. Just gotta do it once and then you'll see how easy it is. I can probably take it off in 10 minutes or so now. lol!
