    Fading seems hard. I dont know why, but I have always loved tuners that are 2 tone with one for the body and another color for the roof and trunk. I just decided to go for it haha

    fadings really easy. you just spray your color then end you color where you want the color to start the fade then just finish sprying the rest of the car with another color. if that makes sense

    Ya. The concept makes sense. I just thought taping and spraying would be easier haha. Its hard to tell, but I tinted the winows. That was hard because that is paint, not a tint sticker. Took 6 coats. Maybe 5 would have been better so it was a little less tinted, but the dark tint hides mistakes better haha

    Its really hard to not make it spotty too. But its dark enough its hard to tell haha. Cuz of the clear window stickers though up close it looks like the cheap windown tint people put on real cars haha

    that looks better than my fist paint job, the trick to getting fine lines is burnishing the tape.

    Got the new rims for it. Havent taken a complete picture yet but the black rims with crome dish bring it out a bit. Also, just got the Team Powers 13.5 turn sensored and Tekin rs ESC put under the hood. its fun haha
