    [QUOTE=ArmySSG;5206431]Now with the body! I cut out the scoop in the front and the back for functionality... The flat black gives it a real aggressive stance!

    That is one fine body.. I was going all black to I got gloss though but after seeing how that looks I really thin flat black is the way to go.. Keep up the good work man and that blower some one posted I gotta have it

    Hey army, you advised me to go "black on black on black" I really like your ride A LOT, but for mine (lots of HR aluminum) I'd go gloss!

    LOL.. Nothing wrong with a little gloss lol.. Gives it that "wet" look that guys pay thousands for House of Kolors Kandy Paint..!!
    Whatever I just said.. I'm probably wrong..

    To be honest, my method may not be the best, but for the most part all of this stuff is either plastic or metal, get the appropriate spray paint, wet sand, and apply.. if it goes wrong later then repeat steps.. but I haven't had issues with the paint coming off after I've sprayed it...

    I did the same thing to my broken stock MERV rims with success!
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    That was one of the first mods I did to my merv a loooong time ago. Like jimmie said, yellow top easy off oven cleaner. Spray it on, let it sit for a few mins, then spray off...super easy.

    HOC and Alsa paint are WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    the most insane is to let a bodyshop make soem custom paint for you

    i did that with my car with flip flop , pearl and flakes in it
    and goes from purple to brwon to gold and the mettalic is a diamond flake in it

    i got airide in my real car from airrider belgium 10 MM << system

    also did a lot of carstereo in my spare timefor friends and family and for my own
    being a demo ride for Kicker livin loud benelux

    the brand from you country

    so i am a real rockford and Kicker fan

    riding in my own car with 2 solo barics and a SoloX behind the seats

    also did a lot of saturdays afternoons at the car painter body shops , with helping because i did like that

    a merv airride would be great but you goota find bags that are little so it will fit the merv and a compressor and a tank

    i think it would be SHOW but much to heavy for a little 1:16

    BTW my car and project

    I love the flat black army has looks real tough.. I wish I'd have known how good it looked before I already bought my gloss black, I also added a little extra touch to it with some chrome flakes. And carbon fiber. Almost done painting, will post pics soon, or y'all can check out my build thread

    Yea I sprayed silver glitter spray paint to look like Crome flakes, but it gave a light light tint of blue. Still looks good though.
