:dontknow:

Good evening everyone,

Now don't flame me for being a lazy mofo, but I was curious as to whether anyone knew of a place that would paint your calipers FOR you.. :laughing: I just will not have time like that to take the wheels off and do 37 coats of primer, paint, and clear coat.

I was also going to get a grill insert.. (bought one on ebay weeks ago, but it turned out to be.. ehm.. gay). Think anyone might install that? (Dealership even?)

Thanks to anyone who responds,
Newbies are people too.. ;-)

-Ian

Oh, and...

If anyone has a picture of a silver RSX with blue painted calipers, that would rock!

Thanks!!

Dude do you have pics of your car posted?

That list of mods goes on for ever, I'm curious to see what it looks like with the gold effects and the neons at night.

Anywhere I can see that stuff?

Ooooh, trust me --- not a problem.

:D

I will be having a photo spree next week one day, I'll be more than happy to post every last pic. :dontknow: Why not, right?

:shooting: Wasting 8 hours painting your own calipers like a sucker...

Must.. find... someone.. else.. to do.. the work.. ugh.

Thanks man,

-Ian

If you want to put in a grill insert you would be better off making your own. Just go to a Home Depot or what ever and pick out the style that you want. After you get the front bumper off its very simple. There is no sense in paying $100+ for a grill. Mine only set me back $8.

Me so lazy....

:shakehea:

Thanks for the economical advice, but the money is not the issue.. :spin:

It's more along the lines of:

1) Quality of the final product.. (I have NO confidence in my grille making/installing skillz) :cool:

2) I am so busy and/or lazy it would blow your mind. :rolleyes:

Seriously though, thanks for trying to save me some bucks, but over $7,000 worth of upgrades and labor later? :dontknow: Hell, I'll pay someone $75 to install the grille. Way more to paint the calipers. $150 at least. :eek:

One last time, thanks.

:shooting: All work and no play....

Thank you, thank you!

:thumbsup:

I know. I'm about to call them. :laughing:

My question was simply - does anyone know of a place that might install it for me.. because my audio guys won't, and I doubt Acura would.

LOL no, just thought it might be easier to help you find someplace if i knew where you were. And if you were close enough, i was gonna offer to paint yer calipers, but bit far.
