Nice work, dood.

I chickened out & went shooting instead. Maybe in two weeks when I'm free....

I really want to do it, I'm just being a little ***** about it.

Cow,

Looking at your location: low/ez/anna, gave me the hint you're hellaflush.
Looking through your photo album in your profile, your car is perfect for this b/c it's got that "race car" drop. Hellaflush car has that tuck drop so it would be pointless doing this IMO.


This mod/coloring is cheap but very effective in spicing up the visual appearance of your Z (if it has the right supporting mods). I did this b/c unlike most Z owners... I build my car for looks, performance second and I think it
looks good and have gotten a lot of positive feedbacks.

Anywho - subscribing to your pix Cow

I actually have an Evo X now. Planning to do it to that car's tires.

I'm going to Tulsa for a soccer tournament this coming weekend, but I'm going to nut up the weekend after. Unless something stupid happens, I shan't let you down!

I wonder if you could go over any messups with a black Sharpie. Just a thought. Prolly just spinning your wheel's @ that point though.

Just an pdate on the sharpies durability.

I had a small slide about 15 feet into the grass at a race track and it did take off some of the lettering... Not too much maybe 5-10%. But enough to need a touch up.

But the yellow letters are definitely fastest

^ haha... yup, mine still looks great as it deteriorate slowly each day passes by. I'm paranoid about scrubbing the tire when washing the car... that the dirt debris will smear all over the yellow letters causing it hard to scrub off or scrubbing it off completely b/c of it. Maybe I'll go gently around it but I'll have to re-highlight sooner or later cause it doesn't look as good as it did in day 1. Some will agree, this is a PITA up keep but it must be done b/c import nascar!

I'll keep y'all posted.

You guys inspired me, just went to Office Depot and bought a pack of 5. They ran out of singles.

Edit: Just did it and came out kind of blotchy, looks ok, I guess I'm being ****. From far it looks badarse, close up it looks like a preschooler did it. The paint doesn't cover 100% and some areas are transparent. Going back for a 2nd or 3rd coat tomorrow.

Imo - One coat is not enough, 2-3 should be perfect. Also, prep cleaning the tire is important too. What color did you go with? Never mind pix when finish.

Cleaned the tire with rubbing alcohol several times then applied 1 coat last night. Giving it another go in a bit.

Me thinks, Plastidip in a bottle with a small detail brush might be easier. Would have better adhesion and coverage as well.

My friend suggest plasti-dip originally but they don't have yellow (in my case) at home depot and I did not want to wait when ordering via online. So I opt for something else.

Looks good sparco!

IMO - it's not rice pending on how well it's excecuted. You should put another coat or 2 on it... looks good.
