Well I figure sicne I have this thread, I wont take up more space for another one to update on whatever I decide to do to the GT. With that said I got a lot done this weekend.
I started with getting rid of the Dealer's badge. Turns out I didn't need a heat gun or even Goo Gone to get evereything off.
Next I removed the wheels and wanted to see what it would take to remove the inserts. turns out its just 2 very little screws. If you happen to remove yours, make sure you use very little torque when you put them back on. they are very small screws going into very soft plastic.
Next I started on the wheels. I decided it would be easier to Plasti Dip them whis the inserts on, but now I know when I do the 2 tone I'll be able to remove them rather than tape them off. Since I'm on the 2 tone subject, I know my colors, but I'm not sure where to put them. I'm going with black and gunmetal pearl. I'm gonna do some photoshop work then I'll post it up here to see what you all think.
Wheels blacked out, but there is too much chrome up front....
While I was doing the last 2 wheels I decided to tape off and spray the front grille in between coats. I'm gonna have to respray the grille though. while I was removing some of the overspray, part of the grille started to come up. It's a very small part that you have to be looking for to see, but it will cause more to come up over time. If I have time next weekend I'll be doing the trim under the side windows. So far I've only used 3 cans of Plasti Dip which is good considering I've done at least 4 coats on everything. I'll have to order the gunmetal pearl, but that will be in a few weeks. in the next few months I'll get the windows tinted and then look into the cost of getting the rear lights wrapped in smoked vinyl. I know it's fairly cheap for the vinyl itself so I may try to do it on my own, but there are some crazy contours on these lights so I may just hand it over to a professional. I would usually use some VHT Night Shades, but since this is a lease, and I'm pretty sure I'll be getting something else when it's over, I would get charged for new tail lights when I turn it in.
Since I brought it up, I'm going to start a new thread about some info I got from the dealership that makes me believe I'll be handing mine in when I finish the lease. I'll link to the thread after I get it posted.
