APLPIX: 2008 Versa S

I did some shopping today. Landed the deal of deals!

17" SE-R rims with 215/45ZR17 BFG g-Force tires, for $400! They all got curb rash and scuffs but I'm gonna get them powder coated. Dunno whether to do gloss white or matte bronze.




Then I upgraded to a new 12" Audiobahn sub and bandpass box for $40. Hits hard and smooth.

I just called a powder coat company, they can do white gloss for $25 a rim and matte bronze for $75 a rim. I'll decide later on what to do.

I spray canned my rims for my civic too, I used the Duplicolor 3 Step kit, primer, base, and clear.

Paint stripped them and wire brushed the curb rash.




Then 2 coats of black primer, 3 coats of bronze base, and 2 coats of clear.




Final product
