07 Satin Silver Clearcoat Metallic

Thank you everyone for helping me patiently over the last couple of months. My search ended with this one. Photos are from the dealer. I pick it up Tuesday. I plan to change it a lot bit by bit. I read on the other threads about exhausts so far. Americanmuscle the only site for good deals on mods?

A nice socket set should take care of most of it. Craftsman makes some nice mechanic sets for around 100

I was looking at the various body kits on American muscle and saw that unpainted parts are far cheaper than painted ones. Is it easier to get the unpainted parts and paint them by ourselves? Or should I take it to a place like Maaco's for painting? if we can paint them by ourselves, what tools would I need to get?

I earlier asked about tools needed for mods. Saw in the installation guide that just screwdrivers, wrench & ratchet. Anything more?

I would buy them prepainted. They look like they do a good job. Youre probably looking at 250+ for a hood or bumper to be done properly. I personally wouldnt go to maaco. I needed sockets and a rivet gun for my front bumper to get the brackets on. the hood scoop needed a drill and the side scoops just popped right on. It just depends on the part. Harbor freight sells tools cheap.

Ok. Any reason for 'no maaco'?

Any idea of costs of painting it by myself? Is it worth the effort?

Macco has a history of poor paint work. And unless you have a dust free room and a real good spray gun I wouldn't recommend doing it your self. Painting is an art. And I can't do it at all...

Re: 07 Satin Silver Clearcoat Metallic

congrats on your purchase. i would def. invest in a socket set as mentioned, and don't ever think you have every tool you will ever need. each project requires different tools, and there are plenty of times you have to add in the cost of tools to do a project. my local parts stores (Autozone, Advance) have tools available to rent, which is pretty cool if its a rare tool that you won't use again.

as far as the body kit i would def have them prepainted unless you have noticable fading of your current paint as it will not match up. the true, proper way would be to order them unpainted take the car and parts to a shop and have them colorshoot the car to make sure the new parts will match. that can be somewhat pricey but thats what it takes to get the job done right.

I was looking at true dual exhausts. Damn those are pricey!

Anyone seen the screenshot of the socket set I posted? Will that suffice?
Yeah I got the point of extra tools needed now n then.

You have to be real careful with silver paint because it can fade so seasy.

Is the $250 for a complete true dual exhaust system including installation and mufflers? An idea on what mufflers he uses?
Thanks
