The panel is an MMD panel I installed myself. Roush sells all the bling stuff on their web site.

I even have Roush floor mats ... I actually really like the shift knob and boot upgrade.

Overall, it looks pretty good. I like the deep, glossy look since they match the "piano black" Forgestar's on the car. I'm a shiny not matte type of person.

It was a cool out and below the 60 degrees suggested application temperature, but I'd spray and immediately hit with a hairdryer and that worked really well. With the hairdryer I was able to re-attach the tip less than 30 mins after the last clear coat. I was able to handle the bottom of the tips since they don't show anyway ... but it was thoroughly dry to the touch.

I put it on pretty heavy ... but it does look different than just glossy black - it keeps the "black chrome" look.
Looks good!

Newspaper is porous. You could get some bleed-through. I would stay clear of using that to cover important areas.

Takiing the mufflers off isn't tough. I'm old and fat and was able to get them off without jacking up the car.
