Awesome!

Hey can you tell me how you sanded and masked the fog light grill things, because it seems hard to mask the outer side since there's not much room there. I'm trying to paint those black as well!

Not much room, but i just used little scraps of sandpaper to get it there, just tore them off the main sheet & took my time to work them into the corners.
Same thing for the masking, just used lots of itty-bitty tape pieces to construct the mask around all the curves & indents. I'm sure it isn't perfect, but that's the good thing, a bit of black over-spray on black plastic isn't visible...

Ya, I forgot to ask swaintech to leave the cat uncoated, means it will get hotter & probably shorten the life. Never mind, it can always be replaced later if it fails

So your clear coat paint you used, is it durable or not? Because it seems any clear I use seems very soft...

I didnt use any clear coat (I assume we are talking about the fog covers), just the flat black paint. It held up better than the body paint after a trip to the mountains last winter

well I assume any dings or pitting will go back down to the plastic black?

I'm just trying to find a good clear that isn't the 2 part urethane stuff, I know that's the best but I don't want to pay nor get my lungs messed up with that toxic ****

Jumped on those Canadian STI floormats, for $99 + $20 shipping cant go wrong, & they look & feel much better than the std mats
What site/where did you order these?? $99 + Shipping is great. Thinking of getting some of these for summers and throwing the stockers in for ski season.
