    Third Gen Ex trim and bumper painted!

    It definitely would not hurt. Biggest thing I should have done that I did not is the clear coat at the end. Maybe a couple of them! The elements take a toll quickly.

    Third Gen Ex trim and bumper painted!

    Update!!! So after several months it has faded a bit. I would suggest putting a clear coat on afterwards. I may try plastidipping over to refresh the look.

    Plasti Dip Wheels and new tires!

    No I didn't! I used krylon fusion, but did not clear coat, which if you are gonna do, I would put clear coat on. I am planning on plastidipping them though after winter. Not too pleased with the fusion

    Plasti Dip Wheels and new tires!

    I am as well! And I just used the regular. And no I did not, but I am gonna give them a good scrub and then gonna put another coat of plastidip or two, and then clear coat them, cause they are incredibly tough to keep clean.

    Plasti Dip Wheels and new tires!

    Well I finally am getting around to post this! Been very busy lately. But I decided to get some new tires 245/75/16's and decided to stick with the stock rims, just plasti-dip them black. I am so glad I did, and am incredibly happy with the turn out. Plasti-dip is one of the easiest things to...

    noise while turning steering wheel

    I just had to change my left front wheel bearing last week for that reason. It makes a world of difference because when i got about 45 mph the noise was a loud drone and almost unbearable. I believe one of my other bearings are going out also..

    Third Gen Ex trim and bumper painted!

    The pillars look goood! Much better. But the one thing i didn't do is sand them down. if there are spots that aren't as faded I would definitely go ahead and sand it down, because you can see the level difference a little, not enough to bother me into doing it again though ;)

    Third Gen Ex trim and bumper painted!

    Nice ex! I just painted my window pillars a few days ago and looks great as well as my handles! I'm going to plasti dip my rims also once i get my new tires! I think i might do my hub cap also, or just leave it off. Does anyone know the ups and down of that??

    Show them my car and tell them it's worth it!!! It cost only like 20 buck max! Totally worth it! If it doesn't look good the first time just put some more coats on it!

    Third Gen Ex trim and bumper painted!

    Thank you!!! It was well worth the 5 hours!!! Well first i pressure washed it with just straight water, cause i didn't want any soap residue that could potentially get under the paint and make it peel. And then i took a clean bucket of water and scrub brush and scrubbed all of the dirty...
