LOL those huge bags of bolts. when i do engines each part i took off the bolts would get their own labelled bag, with the bolts cleaned up nicely. and nuts threaded back on in place if applicable. i hate working with dirty parts.

A little inspiration from the gen 2 Veloster had made me add a little spice to my front lip and side sills. I had also wanted to black out the badges for a lot time now so there was no better opportunity.

Cotton wool to stop any plastidip getting through the badges onto the radiator.

First coat on and I went a little heavy with the black. Can says make a nice wet coat but I have a lead finger. red worked wonderfully. The Plastidip dude on YouTube recommends putting down a tack layer before a proper coat. This is really necessary for small targets like the badges.

I added a glossifier to the black. I did help but I didn't start with a idea finish on the matte black. a little to textured for it to look glass like.

Finished product was fine though. Really happy, personally I don't think it looks too cheap. Adds a bit of personality.

a toothpick works great for removing the dip between letters and won't mar the paint.
