Someone tell me if this is a good idea. I plan on painting my mirrors white....so the car looks newer. Also, i wanna somehow paint the full bumper...all the black. Is this possible and if so hows the best way to do it. And one last thing. I want simple sideskirts to put on the side. I have a huge rustspot oh the one side where the black is. the one picture you can probably see it. How can i make some simple ones to put on there. Thanks

Heres another...that crack in the front is finally fixed...by melting the plastic so that its all even...better looking but not good looking.

By doing that you will change the look of the car, but you should also think about "puching in" your bumpers...and painting the side moldings...

Yes, just drill right in them, but make sure you cover yourself as the fluide will SPREY OUT!!! The best way in to put a plastic bag arround the drill when you do it, that was there is no mess and you dont get soked in hydrolic fluide:D
