Default My 2009 Aveo work

I've been meaning to post my Aveo a while back, but I just now started getting serious on doing some work on it. I used plasti dip on the front end, head lights, and tail lights. I decided to use a can of Rust-Oleum to do the Bowties and any chrome. I removed the GM emblems on the fender. I already painted the AVEO5 and LT pieces, and I'll put those back on tomorrow afternoon with some 3M emblem glue. I also want to paint the upper half of my interior Charcoal, like the lower half is, and paint the silver trim pieces black (probably use the Rust-Oleun for this too). I attached my torque wrench case to the cargo shade. I'm just waiting to save up for a nice set of wheels and tires, and I'll probably paint the calipers, drums, and rotors.

I found a few wheels that I'm interested in, but I'm kind of pressed for money right now. Thank god that some of the stuff that I'm interested in is fairly cheap though. It'* been something that I wanted to do since day one. I'm not a fan of the steelies and wheel covers. I know that there was an option for a nice set of 15 inch wheels that I wouldn't have minded. But, at the time, I wasn't really concerned with it, and ended up with the standard wheels.

Yeah, although it is kind of hard to tell the difference between that and the emblems that I did yesterday. Pics-wise, at least. In person, it'd be a little easier to see the difference. I realize that now after looking at the pics.
