Had it professionally done after my failed DIY attempt. I couldn't live with it looking like it did

I can't hear the whine over my exhaust. The exhaust is loud as hell.

No I didn't lol it was that embarrassing. I had runs in the primer and it was noticeable in the paint and the same thing with the clear coat. Plus rattle canning race red did not match the coloring on the coil covers that American muscle did. So I gave up and swallowed my pride knowing it didn't match.

Thanks guys I have one more thing going on that I will post tomorrow evening. The shop screwed up painting my hood vents red too when I wanted gun metal to match the other gun metal. They gave me an idea though by leaving the part on the inside of the good red and masking it off painting gun metal on the external portion. So it will match with the hood up and down.

Yeah I did thanks!!. I am actually waiting on billet aluminum red caps for all those things u mentioned so I will see how that looks when it's done. I feel kind of safe leaving the radiator overflow and the INtercooler overflow alone because it still matches the black of the strut tower brace and the whipple. Trying to balance gloss black flat black and race red throughout.

Looks good. What kind of paint did you use when you tried to do it yourself? I have a race red and plan on engine bay paint.

Great looking setup.. Did you do the hood vents yourself, or is that an aftermarket hood all together?
