    going to be painting and putting the moldings back on tomorrow, cost be around 30 bucks to do it myself. i must admit one thing, i use my fingers and maccas serviets and a bit of degreaser to remove the adhesive, it works so much better then anything else.

    Im going to paint a few more little things in the interior white too - the ashtray, interior door handles ext..

    next to be painted will be the rear bumper, and then i will consider doing the front.

    i just used a can of spray paint to do the side moldings, but how should i attempt the bumpers? at low cost..?

    apparently bumper paint is expensive :S and i would want to do it with a proper spray gun, which requires going on an hour and half drive to my mates place where he has one. maybe next weekend. just for you phan.
