Oh, I forgot to mention...plasti dip adds 10hp per can...and greatly improves aerodynamics...If your worried about performance mods...then you shoulda gotten a V8! Just sayin...See, I like periods too...

Plasti-Dip is an "Easy Weekend Mod" as indicated by the title of the thread... no one said that it was "a must" mod!

im not really feelin the plasti dip on the emblems... i prefer chrome.. (the old school in me i guess) and on the whheels, i prefer the contrast of the black tire on alloy or chrome etc..but it does look good as well
