  • Spray it first ?? Or wait a bit more.

    Say you have like $2k that you can get an uncle to paint you car (Same color).

    First; Would you get parts (Mods,Cosmetics,etc.) first then paint the car then place them on the car after its been painted.

    OR; Spray it! Then Get parts piece by piece then when you think you have most of it covered. Then put them on.

    Go for the paint. Get it while you can get it, 'cause $2000 is a great price. Of course, that's as long as there are no mechanical issues that could cost you $$$$ left unattended. Just my opinion!

      I agree, but I would buy a EVO II chin before painting first.

        Spray it

        Just have you uncle mix extra paint and keep it so you can use it for the other bits. Or do them in CF:cool:

          How long would it take you to save up for the parts you want to add on? I would lean towards just painting that front bumper cover and then just repainting the whole thing when you get all the add-ons you want.

            I think you should try to get your parts before painting. Also depends on how long you can use you uncles offer. Good luck. Keep us updated.

              I have ben in this kinda spot in the past to , twice to be exact , with my first M3 i painted it first and then worryed about extras , was happy cuz i could drive it and it still looked cool , my second one i did everything at once , but then agen it never ends so you realy are never done , yes there is more of a pride to do it all at once , but if you are looking to driver the car , dont forget winter is here, id say paint it now , drive it , enjoy it and when you have all the other parts put it in the shop , freshen it up and make yourself feel you you have a new car agen .

                usoman no mechanical issues. Im only at 80k.

                Magnus I am still undecided about the chin thing. I like it but I dont know.

                Jed as far as CF I will only do the flap of the evo3 wing and spray the CF wing itself in Diamond and I will have the spliter in CF. Thatz it as far as CF Goes.

                I use this car on the weekends when I go out. So I want it looking good. But I cant wait forever for the parts I want because its a long list.

                Uncles offer is pretty much there. But I am a clean freak and I wouldn't want to buy all these parts then install them then have all the dust sit all over the parts while at the shop. What I mean is best place is in the Box for the parts. Wether its at home or at the shop where I want to buy them from.

                Evo2Trela I constantly keep it in the garage. Its my garage queen but woudn't it be better to paint in twoards the summer?
