1/2 way through color coding the EB side molding things. And XR6 ride height

Well Im half way there.
Just gotta do the bumpers, and fix the bits i couldnt be stuffed doing properly.
Was originally going to just remove the side moldings, and then paint the grey bits on the bumper, but the last owner used a silicon based glue to stick em on. And theres no way thats coming off.

heres the glue :(


Heres what ive done so far.
Not happy withit so im going to redo it, or get it done by someone i know.
And the 4.0l badge is coming off aswell




Originally just wanted to remove the moldings and get clear indicators
Here 1 side with moldings off


Car is also now sitting on EL Xr 6 springs and shocks.
Hard to tell, untill u line it up side bu side with stockos.
Will try get a good comparison shot soon.
Hers one of stock height, but its done at a different zoom, so looks nearly the same. also shows what the side molds used to look like

Re: 1/2 way through color coding the EB side molding things. And XR6 ride height

Yeah i ummed and ahhhed about leaving the chrome bit.
But in the end i was too lazy to tape it :D

nah,
i think, once everythings done it will ook a bit cleaner w/o it

still real pissed off that there was that glue stuff on there.
The other side looked good without the plastic there, once i polished it up

Looks good. I agree with psycho about the chrome, but each to their own. Should look good once you do the front and back.

p.s Loop Troop are heaps mad!

That glue should come off with a hairdryer and some kerosene/petrol mixed together. I had a bit of it behind my side mouldings on the EF, that mix, and heating up got it off very well, none left behind.
