Bored+Broke=cheap project

So I know it been done before but I went ahead and painted a couple pieces of trim to break up my dark grey interior and it turned out pretty well. I only spent about 15 bucks on paint and sandpaper so that's where my broke situation came in and I've gotta say I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out

Just take your time sanding and be sure to clean it before you start painting

I did the same thing. I used plastidip on mine it looks cleaner. I also plastidipped my emblems and they look pretty nice

Yeah I saw a friend of mine use it and I liked it. It's about 6 bucks a can. Not bad, and if you don't like it you can just peel it off. No sanding or prepping required. Im going to do my rims today. On pretty much any stang it's just clips. Pry it off with a flathead and a towel

I try to keep the black/red theme balanced. You don't wanna over do the black accents.
