I finally got around to painting my 'is lip and my bumpers.
I liked the lip black, but i like it even more now.

front looks 100x better now. Looks like the grey side skirts are gone now though?... All the car needs now is something to fill in the sides and back... it looks front heavy, since it comes so low and so high up everywhere else.

In either case, looks much better.

Ya I feel the same way, im still not sure what i wanna do with the sides yet.
One thing stopping me is that the car is pretty low, and sideskirts would just make it worst, plus right now its hard to get the car on a hoist as it is.....so that might mean the sideskirts will get damaged when the car goes on a hoist.

Also, since the rest of the car is original paint, its not gonna match 100%

Did you paint the bumpers yourself or get someone too do it?

Looks good either way.

I painted them myself.
Didn't come out perfect, but im damn happy since it was my first time using a spray gun. The main problems I had was I wasted too much paint. I bought a quart of base, which cost around $100, and a quart of clear coat ($30). One quart of paint is suppose to paint 1/2 a car. But it was a learning experience.
