    That is SO wrong...

    Completely non-JDM. I had a friend that kept threatening to paint the car I had to ride around in with rattle cans, I ended up paying for the supplies and painting it with my spray-gun.


    I am kind of amazed, it looks ok in the pics. The chalk board paint idea is kinda cool. You'll have to update us on how this weathers. I have an old 1965 Mercury wagony with the wood paneling. Maybe I should chalkboard the "wood" sections and let the kids go to town with the chalk. they'd love it.

    Hmm. Maybe I'll chalkboard the tailgate. B, I think you've started a new trend here. :p

    we tired the rattle cans first on the front bumper... but it wasn't holding. so we got some rustolemn enamel. and rolled it on. lol

    it really does look good. lol i couldn't believe it either.

    and best of all, there's no over-spray mess... we did it at bills condo's garage

    lol, i know the seat is shot. we're gonna have bill's mom re-appolster it this winter (she does all kinds of sewing and crafts and such... so she'll do a great job on it.
    and we're gonna re-paint the cage and re-foam it up too.

    and pics of bill's g/f.... sorry. that's all you get. her pics don't do her justice anyway.... lol
