With the install of the air starting tomorrow evening, I have to start busting my balls right after I’m done work to get more work done on the car. Today I was set out to paint the tank cause I can’t stand how it looks how it comes. It’s not even chromed or anything. It’s just really half assed and shitty looking. I set out to go buy some paint to find the closest match. It ended up being a little more brighter and vibrant than the smokey granite mica that the Lexus is, but when it’s in the trunk in the dark, it’ll be pretty tough to tell. I thought it was a nice colour anyway at the end of it all.
Punit and Gopesh also came by to help out and I helped him fix up the lip of of his new wheels for the GS to get it looking a little more shinier. The pics will be meh for his wheels since he wants to keep it secret until the show on May 11th…
How it comes stock. Just shitty looking. Plugged up all the holes.
Ghetto rigged it under a ladder to paint it.
After sanding to scuff it up a little more, I sprayed on the primer and let it sit.
Once that dried, I laid on the first coat of paint. Stopped just to take a pic haha
Took a break while waiting for it to dry more and we polished up Punit’s wheels. Looks nice now!
Doing work! I smudged out his wheel cause I didn’t actually hide it that well in this pic haha.
Final clear coat on! Nice and shiny!
Looks so good. Can’t wait to see it in the trunk.
Had to put it here to let it dry over night. But I also had to park my car and this is how close I got for the garage door to close LOL. Came in hot and almost hit it according to Punit. hahahaha
Thanks for the help today Punit and Gopesh!
