No I didn't ,and I know there is over spray, but I have to go back this weekend and do some touching up and cleaning. It will look even better when I am done. I need to finish the strut bar b.c it is silver and blue ,and i need to put the white on. I had to finish up really quick b4 my mom got home. But don't worry all that over spray will be gone this weekend :)

ok this is what i did to the strut bar. I do admit that i screwed up the first time by being dumb so I had to redo it. I first put on white paint and being dumb I left it outside on a piece of cardboard, well it was a windy day and little bugs got stuck in the paint and dried in it. So I had to get the paint off and I used paint remover, this also removed the stock paint coats . So I sanded off all the extra paint until it was smooth and then I put on a coat of no rust primer and then put on the silver paint in 2 coats. I still have to put on the white paint,but I didn't have time to get to it yet.

wow...i really love what you've done with your car. what kind of paint did you use for all of that? looks sharp as hell. good luck with continuing to improve your already beautiful ride (without attracting too much attention from your parents).

damn, there are a lot of people on here with some great ideas for cheap, fun mods (exactly the kind i'm looking for). looks like i got some learning/ catching up to do this summer when i will actually have some time, and maybe even a little money, to upgrade my sentra.

That's exactly what I posted that I was gonna do next now I got to see a picture of what it looks likes....But I'm gonna do mine black with red lettering.....but I will probably end up taking to long route and take the strut tower brace off and sandblast it and then paint it,,,for that better finish....


But It totaly looks good Nismo girl

What brand paint did you use by the way??

I will probably end up using VHT they are a really good spray paint.....And they also carry paints that use ceramic in them for a more durable finish....

I used Dupli-Color Eninge Enamel with Ceramic. It hold up really well.It is oil and gas resistant. I painted my civic with red and it looked awesome for the 3 years that I had my car. It sets really well. They make a 500*F and 1200*F formulas. The heat value was dyno tested. I used 1200* on my civic but it took a lot longer to set b.c you have to get it up to a higher temp ,with the sentra i used 500* and it set quickly and it looks great.

SS I was going to do the red/black theme again b.c I did that on my civic and it looked awesome.The main reason I didn't was b.c I knew that you were doing that and our cars already look a lot alike so I decided to go with a different scheme. Blue and white is cool though too lol

I like your color scheme as well it looks really good,,,,at first I was gonna do the black and blue scheme at first but I ended up getting the PR CAI in red so I decided to go with that......
