    That’s bad azz, where did you get the door trim piping? Like the red. Or did you have to change the panel?

    Thanks :hattip:

    Just cheap piping. One of the cheapest things I did. It helps flesh out the Meso kit and bring that color splash into the rest of the interior.

    Just bought a Duplicolor pen to fix a scratch before trade-in and good lord do they suck.

    The color match is good enough but the paint goes on crazy thick which made it look like absolute trash. Especially with the MGM metal flake to further highlight the imperfections, and that clear coat was a joke!

    It looked soooo bad, I had to use acetone to take it off 5-6 times and start over before it ended up looking even half acceptable, and even then it still looked terrible.

    The clear coat went on even thicker and started drying almost instantly so there was zero chance to work it all to try and get a smooth finish.

    I'd rate the product about 2/10 overall.

    One of my cars is black. Every time I detail it I whip out the black sharpie and it covers every little nick. Did this for a green truck and a red truck before selling them. Better than any touch up paint. New sharpie kits have 20+ colors in it. Just food for thought.

    Yeah I tried using the gray metallic sharpies and they looked fine head on but were very obvious once seen from an angle. I was worried the dealer would notice and ding me for it which is why I got the pen.

    I do the same sharpie trick every time I nick the shitty particle board on my CV LS-12s and you'd never really know unless you got crazy close.

    @Timbren-Industries front bump stops. The stock ones were surprisingly loose.

    Thx, just a pop up weighing about 2000lbs. Unfortunately in CA you're required to have a brake controller when buying from a dealer.

    I actually found testers model paint and and their airbrush with masking tape to just expose the scratch a good option if you are comfortable color matching. I tried duplicrap once on my yellow SV650 Suzuki. I swear after 3 days the paint never dried, and I did not pool it on.
