Took the [M]'s advice (pics)

Couldn't take the social stigma of knowing that you guys didn't like the factory gray rear bumper insert on the V, so I decided to make the change.

Here's the before pic..



Prep: Undid the 8 plastic pop-lock holders on the underside. This gave me enough flex to get my hands in there and unbolt the refelctors and to remove the mesh grill inserts.
Hit it with some simple green, then some glass cleaner, and finally rubbing alcohol to make sure I hade a clean surface.
Masked it off with Blue tape.

5 coats later I have her where I want her. I just set a timer for 15 minutes between coats. I always start with one light coat, then a slightly heavier 2nd, and then on 3, 4, 5 I just spray like I would anything else with a rattle can.
I didn't use glossifier because I used regular black on my Chrome tailgate piece. I wanted it to match.
This was her after I finished last night


And today at work. I can't believe how such a simple change can make such a big difference. She looks 10 times better than before (in my mind).


I have a car show Saturday so I got it done just in time. Thanks for the advice gang!

I believe BD or someone else also chimed in to lose the gray. That's more than 50% of the active posters, so "gang" is an appropriate term at this point

It looks better yeah, meaner I'd say. It wasn't bad before though either. Taking car fashion advice from a guy who currently has German color badges on his BMW is always a gamble.. but in this case he was right

I just noticed the new emblem. I think that's why it looks so much nicer to me. Great job regardless.
