    Yeah i was thinking about it, but i dont really know a cheap way to do it, because i have very little money. hahah i usually resort to spray paint XD ( that sounds bad) but just for the plastic trim bits

    If anyone has suggestions on type of spray paint or primer, that would be helpful.
    Also has anyone encountered a problem with the e brake sensor? Whenever i accelerate hard from a stand still, my e brake sensor notices the change and the light goes off saying my e brake is on.
    any thoughts?

    You should paint your back bumper black and the front chrome pieces too.

    Looks good
