Heh yeah, they need a coat of satin black now.

swift jimmy 03-01-2012 05:07 PM

Thanks guys :-) yeah noticed it when i put them on so they have come off until i get a chance to spray them.. didnt realise how faded they were

Was more a reference to what they look like on the car.. cause i know there were a couple of people keen for a set


**** small update have painted wiper arms today at work cause it was SOOOOO busy ;-) and didnt want to miss out on this heat to paint them :-) *****

Had a fun arvo playing around with the Lamin-X tint. Have done the foglights and the blinkers. Still have headlights and rear lights to go. Also decided to finally do the most important mod.. astinagt.com sticker :-D

What's best for painting wiper arms? I've got a bit of satin black rattle can left over from my headlights, not sure specifically if it's sufficiently waterproof or not.

i just sanded mine back first then hit them with the satin black seem to be holding up alright with all the rain we have had here.

Thanks dude :-)


Okay open to debate i have primed up my rear badges.. now what colour? i was thinking black but EVERYONE does black so was thinking maybe the same red as the SP20 Sticker or maybe abit darker? thoughts??

Ben 16-01-2012 06:56 PM

Candy red. Slightly deeper than the sp20 badge

smurfy 16-01-2012 07:05 PM

i reckon black, your blacking out the tail lights right? i think red might just stand out to much.

Ice88 16-01-2012 07:05 PM

Every time I see this thread I read it as Jimmy Suite and I get all excited then I reread :(

Like the wheels though the polished lip and old school spoke design are really nice.

marcs_sp20 16-01-2012 07:51 PM

I reckon gold, just to be different ;)

Ben 16-01-2012 11:03 PM

I've changed my mind. Gun metal grey! Or gold, gold is cool.

swift jimmy 17-01-2012 10:12 AM

Thanks for the colour ideas peeps.

Marc - like your suggestion of gold cause know one else has done it.. but i hate the colour gold.

so im going to go buy a can of matte black and also a can of candy apple red.. thinking the rear badges candy apple red and the front one black

smurfy 17-01-2012 10:26 AM

Was it the export stuff by any chance?

I'll take a walk in bunnings on my lunch break see what i can find :-)

Clean_Cookie 17-01-2012 01:36 PM

Buy the quality stiff for $15 a can. That export stuff is useless

smurfy 17-01-2012 02:50 PM

not sure if it was or not, i threw the can away, can was blue, touch up paint, was 13bucks
