A little dress up to the cover: (thought I'd try out something with Blue anodizing paint, this was the result)

Overall Engine shot with a couple blue enhancements: (oil disptick done w/ blue liquid plasti-dip)

I am also working to darken the interior. The light gray bugs the crap outta me. Forgot to get a pic of the front pillars for comparison so I am showing one of the rear pillars instead:

After (sorta)

Eventually I will be doing something with the headliner, but not yet.

And, since I havent changed out my antenna and I was bored, I decided to have a little fun with it. It has a swirly ridge around it so I just colored the raised portion:

Nice. What touchscreen did you get?

This has been added to your profile. :thumbsup:

Not a pure touchscreen, but I didn't really care about that. I really went for user ratings across different ordering platforms, and this one came out realllly well:

I went with a Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD

Still waiting to receive it though :(

Same here. Which paint did you use?
#184864
I appreciate the kudo's and the feedback folks!

It's the Dupli-color Metalcast Blue Anodizing (# MC201), with a Metalcast Ground coat (#MC200). Then I went over with with a gloss clear acrylic.

I'm also going to be picking up the "Smoke" anodizing this weekend for my rear 'burger and the one on the steering wheel. I want to do something different than plasti-dipping everything hehe.... not that I haven't gone that route on a couple things anyway.
