Really Nice Nat! , did you order the whole complete kit or is it just the front and rear bumpers?

Front and rear for now since Black Pearl don't make a LWB. I will use the Wald sides for now...it matches up pretty well. Still debating on the sides, I don't like the box on the rear of the sides skirt. I might end up ordering it and cut and extend to make it fit.

A little update...car has been at 515 Auto Body in Burlingame for a week now. The prep work takes longer than expected.

Rear bumper primed and sand. Ready for the first layer of paint.


Front bumper primed and sand...sanding take longer due to the many angles and small crevices of the LED lights. Some part of the kit was filled to make it even with the body line.


Front bumper done with the first layer of paint...3 more to go before it is done. (Matte Silver, Black, White and Clear)


Rear bumper...ready for the next coat of Black.

very nice! why did you have to paint it matte silver and black first? is it just a base color to make it look better?

The color that went down is black. It looks matte silver/grey because they were painting it over the primer. Black is the accent color for the kit. Nat will post updated pics soon because it's done!

The rear bumper has three different color. First layer is dark gray, follow by black. It is then finished with the white and clear.

A little update. The front and rear is complete. I think it turned out pretty good. Hoping the wheels will come in soon but it's current on 22" Vossen borrowed from a good friend. I'll keep it this way for the summer before it goes in for more aggressive goodies and adding dark gray to some of the front trim. More pictures to come once the wheels are here.

Front


Rear
