  2. How to remove Ralliart style front chrome ring

    but if you think about it.. how long did it take you to tape off everything nicely. takes about 10-20 minutes to fully remove the chrome ring etc. Probably works out about the same either way just preference.
  3. How to remove Ralliart style front chrome ring

    yeah its all good when you go dark. but when I did orange plasti dip on the chrome ring you could visibly see the orange in the groove behind the trim etc. So decided just to take it off clean it out in there. and wrap it in 3m to make it last longer. Good to clean out the rocks stuck in there after a couple months too.

    Before and after wheel alignment specs. Before is stock suspension with 16" rims and 225's After is stock suspension with 18" rims and 245's and a camber kit to get the front setup over 0 degrees.
  7. Orange grill.. need feedback

    Yeah the side markers pop out the same way. No point in throwing in more turn signals. If i replaced them with real lights id just tint them black (and I already have blinkers on my side mirrors) So paint em black. Heres a pic of the black side markers. Theres already dirt stains on them its pouring rain here right now. also blacked out the front mitsu logo
  8. Orange grill.. need feedback

    Yeah the plasti dip was the trial run to see if I like the color. and I do so i started to remove it all and re do it in orange vinyl wrap. So far redone the orange grill in wrap. Then going to get someone else to wrap the side mirrors. The plasti dip orange looks to much like a reflective orange. *I prefer vinyl over real paint just incase I ever need to restore it to stock for resale or whatnot. However I did paint those stupid chrome side markers on the 2015 in gloss black. Thanks for all input though seriously.
  9. I was recently searching to remove the chrome ring on my front bumper and could not really find much. I did end up finding a solution on the internet but I dont believe PL has a how to for this so thought I would write one. If this is a duplicate my bad and you can delete this thread. I found this useful as since I previously plasti dipped the chrome ring there was a bunch of over spray deep behind the trim I was able to clean out nicely. Also removed all the plasti dip from the chrome and wrapped it instead. Tools you will need: 10mm socket / wrench Philips Screwdriver (one short and one long one) Flat head screwdriver Step 1: First start by removing the two 10mm bolts on the TOP part of the BOTTOM grill Step 2: Muster up the courage to give the BOTTOM part of the BOTTOM grill a good push INWARD to release the clips holding it in place. You will feel where it is holding and be able to release all the clips feeling your way around the grill. Step 3: The black center part of our grill has two plastic clips that go inward toward where the two 10mm bolts were. You will need to gently wiggle each side loose by gently pulling back on the center bumper to release the bottom grill. You will now be able to take out the bottom grill Step 4: Once the BOTTOM grill is removed you will be able to access 8 screws located directly behind the chrome trim. Feel with your fingers you will be able to feel all of the screws. Step 5: Pop the hood to your car, and start releasing the 4 POP clips, and the 2 philips clips holding the Air duct to your Air Intake. Remove plastic tray completely. Step 6: Squeeze your hands behind where the chrome ring is to remove the 8 silver screws holding the bumper directly in place, and the 2 screws holding wires also connecting to your bumper. These 2 screws will be BLACK. (some of the screws are pretty difficult to get your hands into would recommend using the shortest philips screwdriver you have. The screws holding the wires are located in the white plastic clip seen in the photo below. Step 7: Once you have successfully removed all the screws the chrome ring should pop off no problem. Pull gently all the way around if any clips are still engaged. **** I hope this is helpful to anyone out there who needs it. Probably not the most in depth how to but if you are looking how to do it I think this will suffice. Enjoy. Questions and Feedback welcome.
  10. 'the Blue Meetzoo' [2015 Lancer Gt Awc]

    Originally I did do them orange too as you can see. I couldnt get both sides to match color and me being hella OCD I couldnt stand it so I took it off (plasti-dip) Taking my car in to get properly 3m wrapped orange: the front chrome grill and the side mirrors in a week or two. Also the wrap wont be such a bright cone orange more suttle. MORE LIKE THIS Will post pics when I get it done by a prof. Going to try and de-plasti dip my car.
