Did some stuff to my car, pics.

So, I did some minor mods to my car this 3 day weekend, I very happy with how they turned out. I snapped some pictures to show everyone what I did, opinions would be loved.

I painted the letters on my tires white, for that old school muscle car type look. I also painted the insets on the door sill plates silver, the dome light insets too.

I'm digging those white letter tires,real old school. Saw a S197 bout a year ago with the same thing and thought it looked great.

Exactly what I was thinking. Really gives it the old school look.

The perfect tires to do that to, looks great. The interior is beautiful, the sill plates stand out nicely.

Re: Did some stuff to my car, pics.

Sorry it took me so long to reply to your posts guys, but here goes.

Please, save your 11 dollars and STAY VERY FAR AWAY from the DupliColor Hot Tires paint pens. They suck, worse than the San Antonio Spurs in the playoffs right now.

I bought 2 the first time, the 1st one I opened was dried out already so I returned it and bought 1 more pen for good luck. I had to remove the tires from the car in order to paint them, because it was so hard to get the paint to flow down onto the tip of that stupid pen. It sucked, I spent forever on my tires painting them, they looks so amazing when I mounted them back onto my car. Boy, they didn't even last the night. I went to look at my car the next morning and it was already falling off, so I redid the tires again, again it lasted a day.

It wasn't my prep work or drying time, I was careful about this from the start of the project.

These paint pens suck. I took them all back and got a full refund. I am painting the tires with Testors Classic White model paint as I type this angry message, the paint feels like it should stay on the rubber for awhile, but only time will tell on that one.

Hey, at least I got some cool pictures with my one day white letters.

I hate you duplicolor hot tires.
