    1st gen rear bumpers in that condition are rare (especially since its not the chrome plated)...spray it with something like wd-40 & store it inside if possible.

    Hmmm, wonder where I've seen that done before A little 3D carbon look film is subtle but has just the right impact. I'm going to do the whole instrument panel surround when I get the chance. Might even pull the bezel out of the cluster and do that too...

    I was able to do it from an iPhone. I was using the desk top site. There should be a way in the mobile site. I also have forum runner. The site is set up to support it. I just did test upload in the test area using form runner. Yep worked. It was easy also.

    That looks really different without the stripes. Have plans for a pin stripe maybe or keeping yellow?


    Front grill looks really good too. Makes me think about doing mine now.

    Nice, My celica was 1978 Chevy Corvette canary yellow with the tiny amount of black that the color called for, removed from the recipe. It made a nice yellow for that car. Name:  toy.jpg

    The same Mitsubishi yellow you have would be perfect, no need to do jams and under hood etc. Make the job easier for ya. I really like yellow also as you can see in the image
