    After a day spent removing bumpers and painting front and rear rub strips I spent 2hrs. a day, 4 days in a row doing each door (it was a lot of work getting all the old 3M tape off) and I finally finished yesterday. Gave the car a quick wash today and figured I'd put up some results shots.

Should I put them on now as-is (not sure how it'll look), or get then sanded and color-matched...
