I need everybodys opinion...let me know what u guys think










I am going with a black and red theme on the inside since i got the all black leather package and everything else is black

I am also going black and white on the outside so I decided to go with black, red, and white in the engine bay area...this summer, I want to get Cold air intake to make it looks even better and maybe get everything cleaned haha

I've never really been interested in painting anything in the underhood area, but that looks freaking awesome! Good work. The black separating the red and white makes it look very professional.

It does look good... Did you clear it so it will hold up better?

To get a perfect match on small details when using spray cans, spray into an old spray can lid or similar. Once you have some paint, use a brush to hand paint on the sprayed paint you have captured. That way it is the same paint, same color as the stuff you sprayed. This is how I've done lettering highlights before. Perfect match!
