★★ Platinum Motorsport F01 7-Series Transformation ★★ (Updated)

After about a year of ownership since purchasing my baby, its time to do big things! Been a crazy 2 months trying to get everything done and ready for SEMA 2011 but the car is finally done and will have photo shoot pictures up shortly!



Few in progress photos of the paint process:





Paint done getting ready to get reassembled:

Should've blacked-out the door handles and headlamp 'eyelashes' too.

Otherwise, is the front bumper properly aligned with the hood? There should be an even gap.

It's aligned perfectly, as far as blacking out unnecessary pieces that wont happen.

Like it was necessary to black-out any of the parts!?

I'm not hating, just saying that since you blacked-out the chome repeater lamp surround, you should've blacked-out the small chrome door handle inserts as well. Or, you could've whited-out the repeater lamp surround, as you did to the chrome horizontal bar under the rear emblem.

Also, are the front and rear emblems different?

And, how much would you charge for a matte paint job?

Didn't want too much black accents under the lower half of the vehicle thats why did those in black and did the door handles color matched and the rear trunk chrome piece color match. The emblems are all blacked out the blue and white checkers are both black.

I saw your car Monday when I dropped my car off at Sema and I know that was your car.

Looks great I like the Rick Ross setup not my cup of tea but badass to say the least.

The show setup Giovanna had picked out is not bad, but my original setup posted above is much better, the color matched lip is too much in my opinion.
