    ordered some silver mica and clear coat from http://www.automotivetouchup.com/

    also have a grillcraft mesh coming, I like the frame and it's not going all the way back

    meanwhile, more sanding and primer :eek:
    decided to paint the inside part semi gloss black, I just couldn't get the plastic and the edges of the welds to look right by only sanding.
    There was no filler or bondo used in this, and large gaps were filled by plastic welding and then primer :D
    I'm not the greatest painter so pics of the finished product will take a bit longer. right now I'm having problems with this high build primer cracking. yay more sanding :(
