Talking Pics of my CRAB painted & installed

Today was the first day i was able to put my CRABs in. I ordered it primered so i could paint it myself to match.

Step 1: Tape and hang up.

Step 2: First coat of paint.

Step 3: Getting distracted by a SWEET Camaro on the way for more paint.

Step 4: Finish product in sunlight...

Step 5: finished product in no sunlight.

Step 6: INSTALL!!


Then of course i had fun removing the Intake Resonator and pulling it through the headlight housing...

Exterior-AVS window and sunroof wind reducer, Dual Exhaust, Tinted tails, 35% Tint all around, DDM tuning 8k Highs & Lows.
Interior- Red LED's
Performance- CRAB's Option 3, Exhaust
Coming up: MMI's, Painted Calipers, Painted Side Mirrors

Got lucky with the duplicolor. They don't have our paint in their book so I had to get one as close as possible with a little less metallic since theres no metallic flake in the engine bay. Sound is a little better.... From what I can hear over the exhaust... 1 extra MPG so far. And power is fairly noticeable.

Hey Robert! Do you have black ones? Cause you gave me a red one and I dont think you'll be able to see it very well.. If you do can you pm me so I can get one? I was going to get on Microsoft word and use your font to make a stencil and paint it black.

Looks nice. You did a good job with masking it. One question though. Why didn't you just remove the rubber trim and paint instead of masking it? It would match more with a coat or two of clear coat too.
