Man, you guys are KILLING me!
I gotta get my car into the Paint Shop soon, and join the club!
I'm also taking the opportunity to paint on my stripes. Smooth, with clearcoat. Gonna paint the rear bumper stripes through the license plate recess instead of going around it. And remove the "hockey puck" Sirius antenna from the trunklid (since I installed a different stereo with XM anyway). Then do a clear bra before I get the first rock chip!
I may use a different perforated metal for my Deep Draw vents... like the CS6/CS8 grille material. Get it powdercoated silver, maybe?
Speaking of silver, anyone got the PPG paint code for Shelby GT silver stripes?
