    I'm looking at blacking out the chrome on the bullet 1.5 and I stumbled across Plasti Dip. Has anyone used this product? It looks too good to be true honestly, but I like the idea of being able to peel it off if it looks like crap. If this is a load of crap, can anyone recommend a better simple...

    Hey guys I decided to try some new matte black smoke film my supplier gave me for my tails. In stead of covering the entire tail-light assembly I decided to do a custom cutout using my exacto knife and I was pretty impressed doing this free hand:whistle:. The film was very easy to work with as...

    Looking for MATTE BLACK B5 Photos. And MATTE PAINT advise. I still love my 2000 4motion V6 B5 after 12 years and 160K miles. City life has been a little rough on her exterior (after 12 years). Door dings, bumper rashes, hairline scratches... I think I want to give her a paint job. Either the...

    I sold my car about 2 years ago and just remembered that I had this grille lying around. It has a clip or two missing, but it does not affect it's appearance nor does it affect how snugly it fits. 6-pack of Yuengling (or better, no wheat/belgians, craft brews always welcome) and it's yours! :)...

    Here is an update from 08/19/09 She is almost all dressed up. I just need to finish one of the rear fenders and cover front bumper. The rear bumper was PITA since it has lots of curves, but with a help of few extra hands and a heat gun I was able to cover it. Here is the result...

    The paint on my 01.5' GLX is on the way out. I'd like to know as much about this finish as possible.

    Just got my Passat back from Automotive Dezignz like 15 minutes ago. I told them that they could do whatever they wanted to the car in terms of stripes. This is the beautiful result that they have come up with. Totally unique and I think it looks great!! Next on the list is blacked out wheels.
