    My worst fear was that you painted it red!! But the satin chrome looks really nice, its kinda classy yet sporty.

    anyway, as for whats next... interior wise orr anything? As lil_mickey said the grilles... maybe get them in chrome?

    Ummm... neons in the footwells? I know it sounds tacky, but if done right its all class. thats about all i can think of.. but dash looks great

    how'd ya do it? is it a spray pack or tin? im keen on having the Black interior instead of the grey that i have now...if its possible to dye it black that'd be awesome!!! but how good does it come up? and does it fade ect?
