Fly like a G6
Yea I think that's what I'm going to do with it. I thought about finding some paint that is an exact match for my car online and spraying it again as well as the grey trim pieces inside the car.Yeah it looks a little light. Have you considered putting clear coat on it?
Go with AutomotiveTouchup for finding the right color. They sell spray cans that are the cheapest (or on par) price I could find.Yea I think that's what I'm going to do with it.

Oh I know what you mean...I never use tough grit sandpaper on my plastics. I usually use real fine grit like 300 first then a finer grit afterwards. I always use clear coating on interior trim pieces since I will be touching them a lot and the "paint" feel is just nasty. I like using primers that don't have much color to them.

Make sure when you paint the trim pieces:
-Sand first (don't use less than 200 grit)
-Use a primer that matches the color of your basecoat
-Get a heavy duty clear coat enamel
-Let it dry for a few days before installing
I learned all this the hard way personally. My trim kit now has scratches from 60 grit sandpaper, a rust red primer, easily scratched clear coat, and the paint was still drying after a day or two and was messed up while installing (mainly the shifter plate).
Yea they are some beauty'sGotta love them Electric Blue G6es!! :beer:
Yea I had already looked at that thread actually haha and I plan on doing it when I can get around to it. I work 12 hour shifts so I don't have much time to do stuff. I had the thought of painting the stock steel wheels too lol. I kinda like the look with the rim covers off and was thinking of painting them black. I figure I'll just get some better rims...rockstar style or something different. Yea I am still getting used to the shock of going from the Trailhopper to this...feels like my ass is scooting across the groundheres a how-to to remove the stripes I found on this forum.
But really, if you just google it you'll find videos and links all over the place.
As for the wheels I did a cheapo wheel mod. I removed the hub caps. The steels underneath are 5 spokes and you can paint those. I painted mine and added a red stripe around the edge, Came out nice, Also got some new lug nuts to complete the look. I like it but it is still unmistakably a steel stock wheel. haha
And I hear ya on the lowering, I just like to throw it out there haha
