It looks fuzzy and orange in the first two photos, but it is red! ImageImageImage

It aint that fun, rewarding, but not fun. I noticed your signature mentions a Chevy Traverse- Wife wants one. What do you think of yours? Looking to replace the suburban here soon.

It's a race car so I quit going for perfect. A little polish in a week or so and itll look fine. Undecided on the rest of the paint scheme. I'm tempted to bring back the old stripes as they were but I'm open to ideas in anyone has one.ImageImageImageImageImage

I guess I forgot to change that here. We dumped that piece of crap. Just out of warranty, the rack and pump went out. With less than 30k on it, we had had tire wear issues, and all kinds of noises. I dont know anything about the new ones though.

The wife loved it! We had just over 30k on it and everything started going bad. It was really messed up!

Any opinions? Two lower stripes or one? Only using white as the accent this time. I wreck the thing too often to get fancy. Also going to end the stripes on the door so that fender replacement is easier. Cant decide on angling the start to match the back or squared off an inch behind the door.ImageImageImageImage

The angle at the front will make it look smoother. Also, I would do a single stripe.
