wweelll... funny story about the trim. Apparently the material the trim is made of doesn't like to hold paint well. So after 2 hours of meticulous painting and drying over night it wipes right off. So ... moral of the story: TEST A SMALL AREA!

I may sand the trim and see if it hold better, or just leave it alone since the silver trim is oh so nice. What do you think?

Maybe a regular sharpie would work better on the inside trim

Dont nix the idea of the trim. I think it would carry over very well. I would love to see it finished. I see your car and think Mike Giant everytime, hes got his own sharpie so keep the good work.

Have you been diagnosed with elephantitus? Because you my friend have ginormous balls. That work is amazing!!!! Way to take a risk that in my opion has paid off big time!!

Seriously, you and your old lady must have to drive everywhere seperatly cause anyplace you go your balls would have to ride shotgun. You simply MUST find a way to make the interior sharpie work out then make those mammy fukers at Sharpie pay you for some sort of marketing campaign.

Wow. That is sick. Great job. Once you figure out how to get the paint to stick to the trim, you should definitely carry the art work over into the inside of the car.

I think I have abandoned that Idea... I don't want to have to sand my trim since it is the silver already and one of my favorite parts of my car. I will work on something else... don't worry
