Default Perma-Pollen

So i'm rinsing the pollen off the car(because my girlfriend'* sister wrote her name in the pollen) and I noticed theres some pollen on my exhaust tips that wont wash off






it'* shiny pollen
I think it looks good, but i also think the car needs some more gold to do the trick completely.

Opinions Appreciated

Yeah I saw his, i had seen it before and then a while back i had the idea, and I searched for his car and i believe i saw his car domain before it was totaled, i liked the idea of the gold in the interior too!

Painted my oem tips on my 94 as well, but since the car is gold I painted them gloss black to match the rest of the black accents. looks good IMO.

its amazing what a little spray paint and clear coat will do. I did mine in chrome, came out pretty good, and still looks good when the carbon is washed off

Why not fix the bumper before playing with the tips?

I think it looks good. What'* the best way to do it permanent? I'm helping my brother fix up his '95 SSEi, which I sold to my niece and after a few years later she sold it to her dad (my brother) and I think that would look good on his car.

well the bumper is something i'd rather have completely repainted and if i'm gonna do that i'd rather get the whole car done because other body panels need paint and it'd be weird to do one at a time and end up having one come out slightly different that the other, i could just do some touch up paint on there so it doesn't stand out as much but whatever. another reasoning is $, im in high school, part time job, college is on its way

thanks for the compliments....eventually i think i will do the grille in gold and also the black stripe on the bumpers and side cladding, and pin stripes
