So this weekend i did alot and changed alot. It was my first time accually painting and going through the process the right way (sanding,priming, then painting)..I realize that in the past i may have done things to the GP to make it look ricey and retarded but now my focus isnt on looks as much anymore its more directed towards performance. But i painted some things so tell mw what you guys think..

Before:







The Painting Process...

















The Finished Products..



















Look better?

tons better, you could wet sand that stuff and buff it out to make it look even nicer.
