They've always been painted black... haha. They've been masked for a while so it's still the original factory paint.

I decided to add a little detail to the intercooler in the time being.

Some of the paint lifted while I was taking off the masking. So I sanded it down and I'm respraying it soon.

Thanks guys.

I resprayed the bits that came off and painted the diffusers black.




Unfortunately, in the process of masking the body, some more paint came off... So I gotta remask and repaint the body again -__-

Well, I'm going to say this project is basically complete. There may be a thing here and there I want to fix up, but as for now, I'm happy with how it looks.

Here's what I had to work with in the beginning just for a reference (not the same body).








And here she is today.


















Thanks for those of you who stuck around these three odd years to see this thing finished.
