Thanks,

Bumper trims were painted by a professionlal, but i painted door trims with a spray can. I painted them on a day, but i let them to dry for over night, to make sure that they are dry.

A couple of pics from when I purchased it, I've since plastidip'd the grill and tinted the windows. How hard is it to remove the roof rails?

I can take pictures from the rear tomorrow, if weather is good.
I have Ksport 356mm(14") discs with 8-pot calibers on front, and 02 Aero calibers and 300mm vented disks on rear
