Default Cleaned up the outside look...

Have been too busy doing mods on the Magnum... It now has a 300 front clip, but I did get a chance to do a little something about the outside. That ugly bumpers are now a little cleaner looking thanks to Plastidip. Also changed up the rear back up lights and gave it some eye lids. Thought I would share...

Thumbs up Re: Cleaned up the outside look...

you did an excellent job on the bumpers,but if you go out of state with those painted on eye lids BEWARE some state's such as my state Virginia,, consider that illegal and will happily write you a ticket

Your bumpers look good! Did you have the 'tape line' before?

Cool think about plastidip is that it is removeable... it's a rubber like coating that peels off, no muss no fuss.

Love the bumpers

Headlights? I kinda like it?

It's a great idea for having to remove it someday, it will just peel off. But if I were to do it without that reason, I would have painted and shined it up just like the car itself, or fiberglass ones.

Either way, nice job.

Yeap, it was mostly to see if I liked it. Also tried shooting the pockets on the wheels, didn't like it, then tried the whole wheel, didn't like that either so back to stock there. Will prob. clean the lenses and paint or maybe even nightshade some lids on.

That's on the todo list but unfortunately the wife has been out of work for the last month so I put a hold on the mods, at least any that are going to cost me money.
