Thinking these for the dub!🙈

[]Matt Myers

Those would look great. I love my rotiforms

[]Maggie Johnson

Thanks😊

[]Ernie Szots

Those are dope. I think they would definitely look good on your car. I also think a set of fifteen52 Turbomac's would look awesome.

[]Maggie Johnson

Thanks! I just looked those up they’re sick. I might’ve changed my mind haha

[]Ernie Szots

Best friends jeep👌🏼 I need an interior kit for my car but I never know where to find them that th

[]Robert Sixto

I'd second the plasti-dip idea. I've used it on a couple of items and it's worked out nicely. It's only really good though if you want a rubbery soft surface, I don't think you'll be able to do a gloss look like on that photo.

[]Gregory Garoppolo

I would probably look into the Plastic-Dip thing. I prefer that idea because it is removable and less prep dependent. From my experience, painting interior plastics requires a lot of prep work, which isn't reversible if you don't like the end result, and comes out poorly when not properly executed. Plasti-Dip seems a bit easier to work with, more forgiving when mistakes are made, and easier to repair when damage occurs. But, yeah, like Tim said, rip it apart and do it yourself.

[]Timothy Markworth

Just rip stuff apart and paint it yourself. Carefully, that is. A proper automotive gloss will do a lot of the work for you. Downside is that it obviously creates a lot more downtime than just throwing parts in your car, but hey. A few rattle cans won't cost hundreds of dollars.

If you want something to look like black plastic, use a matte black base and lay gloss on that. If you have parts made of vinyl, you'll need specific vinyl paint for those. I found that out the hard way. Luckily, my standards are kind of low for this sort of thing.

[]Wilson Oberholzer

If you don't want the down time you could always go to a junkyard, hit up eBay, or find someone parting a car out to get the trim pieces to mess with so that when you want to change them it's just a quick swap instead of going through the process of refinishing your current set.

[]Lynx Star Automotive

ECS Tuning is my choice.

[]Andrew Johnson

That's some series elbow grease in progress! What new color are you going with?

[]Maggie Johnson

Actually I’m not sure yet. She use to be yellow and black. It’s my boyfriends but I’ve helped him work on it a lot. It needs a lot before it’s painted though

[]Caleb Krebs

My z's clear coat is peeling, so I'm debating wet sanding and reapplying clear coat, yet I've never done anything like it, is this your first time dealing with paint also?

[]Maggie Johnson

No. I’ve dealt with paint on many cars, and the most complicated part of wet sanding the clear coat off is to make sure you dont go through the clear into the paint. The goal is to weaken the current coat and apply over it with a thin coat and heavier as you go through your process. You want clear to be a little sticky when applying coats and to make sure its sprayed swiftly and with a decent distance. It is not hard to make clear runs!

[]Caleb Krebs

That's what I've heard! Thank you!!

[]Maggie Johnson

Yeah no problem
