02/17/10 - Rear valence, side skirts and fender flares
after the waterpump fiasco, Bryan helped paint the rest of the
bodywork. Since the paint is SOOOO transparent, and the final
color is directly related to the number of coats of paint. Since
the parts weren't painted at the same time as the car, they're a little
off color. This isn't too apparent in natural light, but under
flourescent lights, its painfully apparent. Oh well. I'll
fix it in the future, I guess. Or use some vinyl to make it less
noticeable. I also painted the fender flares with plastidip. The rubber texture is awesome.

Side skirts and flares installed:
Some people seemed to think the flares should be painted body color. I think these people are INSANE. I LOVE the look of the black flares. SO TOUGH!
