I did some touch up painting in the engine compartment and the side markers. I also painted my calipers a cool blue color.

Side markers, white Fusion and some clear coat.

Doing the rotors.










I'll have to take pics of the side markers and the touched up engine compartment later.

Looks good, go buy yourself some Black rubber coating paint at Auto Zone and black out all the white in the wheel wells. First thing I did after the rims, looks a 100% better.

Very nice! Answers my question of whether or not to go blue or yellow painted calipers. Even though I'm getting full rims and not spokes anymore.

Brushed. I used the kit from Kragen. Two coats.

What was the answer? Blue or Yellow.

Yellow and blue make green.

I just painted my engine cover today too, well most of it. I think I need to get the airbrush out and add some flames. I'm thinking silver flames over the blue metallic base already there.

Fusion rocks... I used that in my engine compartment as well. If you haven't already do your fusebox covers with it too...
Yeah, I did the painting a few months back, just did some touch up getting ready for the weekend. This shot was taken last Sunday.

The paint around the VVTI was jacked up so I just painted over it.
I like the way it looks lit up too.

I didn't take any pics last night. I'll do some when I get home tonight. It's a close match but not perfect. You can't tell much difference. I'll post a completed pic tonight.
