New Paint!

Post by Iovofcwa » Sat Nov 03, 2018 8:22 pm

Just got my 2011 9C1 back from the paint shop. Factory phantom metallic black. No longer covered in primered parts. I'm so excited to keep this thing in good shape for a long time.

That taillight action is mind blowing. I also think you've done something pretty cool their with the grill. Nice job on tieing it all together, looks mean!

Looks great! How is the brightness with the tinted tails? Going to put any badge on the rear or leaving off?

The brightness is fine, I'm actually hoping to go darker because the guys at the paint shop scuffed one, but I put LEDs in and they're great except for the hyper blink. My plan on the badges was to get the holden grill and badge from Holden parts. I got the g8 shifter from there with the holden logo, man is that shit nice.

Nice. LED bulbs or the full on LED tails from AUS?

Man makes me wish we weren't heading into winter so I could do a few more things to the car before weather dive bombs :lol:

No just bulbs. The reverse lights in led look phenomenal. Ya that's why I got that paint job done. Before winter. I need new headlights bad. I cleaned them up good but they still pretty bad.
