Im laid off for the week due to flooding in thailand so im going to take advantage of it and do a thing.



Im kinda tempted to go all the way around like this but since that bumper is a mess i probably wont until i find another one and figure out a way to fix it.

Stop looking for excuses. lol. What would you paint it with? Would you go black, or gray? I think it would look pretty good done all the way around.

Project badass buick has started and is almost finished

I used automotive undercoat from a spray can on the rockers, and plasti dip on the doors.. i did not know plasti dip was soo runny.. totally not expecting that. hopefully it will look better after i touch it up in a couple hours.

idk why... facebook is an idiot.. ill put better ones up tomorrow since it gets dark at 5 now.. god i hate that.. i literally swore at a roll of scotch tape all day.. im never buying scotch blue painters tape ever agian. and plasti dip absolutely SUCKS at doing a job like this.. im probably going to end up putting undercoat on the doors like i did on the rockers since water likes to build up under the plasti dip.. no matter how well you put it on its GOING to happen especially with my low car in the winter.. ill drive it like this for a week or so see how it holds up and then probably do the undercoat.

The blue tape has a purpose! It worked well in my trunk.
