      @rentalcar: saw your car already on garaget and folowed the updates you did there. Love the way you transformed your car! I think I don't have to say that the color is fantastic? ;-)

      Apparently mine looks ok because when I went to pick up some carpet, the guy at the shop asked if my Volvo came "from a tuner." He was shocked when I said no, it was pretty much stock. Haha.

      People don't know... If I ever go to my dealership, they always comment on the sport package. There is no "sport package" on the S40. There's dynamic trim and sport suspension, and R-design for facelifts, but I have none of that.
      I also had some techs come out and inquire about my exhaust (this was running stock tips), asking if it was aftermarket and how it sounded. You'd think a Volvo tech would know a Volvo better.

      Oh! Didn't know that garaget had foreign readers! Thank you and yes, the color sure is growing on me! Havn't seen many V50 R-design with this metallic blue color around.

      What does your car look like RIGHT NOW!?!

      It looks like this:



      Really cool/creepy/beautiful light toward dusk tonight. A photog's dream. So, being one-a-those, here's some more pics, all taken only a few steps from my house: (no manipulation, taken with iPhone 4S' standard camera app.)

      A lurking 855:







      Not being a true photog, I didn't have my D80 slung on my back at the ready. Anyway, I thought the shots were kinda cool.

      You'll need a lot of white to cover red. At least that's what I hear... Perhaps we could do ours together! I've been longing for a color change and have always loved white cars.

      Know that feel. Yeah, black has been fun too. It's pollen season in Tallahassee, so the car has a persistent, uneven yellow haze.

      Thanks! My grill btw is plasti-dipped. I might do the rails and the mirror caps too. I never really liked the silver trim on the R-Design pkg.

      I'm doing my truck bumpers on the 23rd, if the result is good, I'm doing the whole car.

      I bought a very good HVLP gun so we'll see. And yes it will take a lot of gallons.

      I no see Slasher's car. I is confused

      You people complaining about your dirty cars... I have to say, Flint Grey does not show dirt. I have accidentally brushed my hand across the car, suddenly realized how dirty it actually is, and then gone to wash it. So long as you don't brush up against it, you can get away with not washing the car for weeks

      Point proven: Most of the recent pictures/videos of my car have been 3-4 weeks after being washed (including wheels!). I've been lazy with the rags this winter....

      Dirty vs. Polished

      So while I'm redoing the lettering here is how dirty it got after a wash and rained on the next day, versus polished!

      I also re-did my licence plate vinyl. Gloss vs. mate. I like it much better that way. The last thing I want is to emphasis that plate. It makes it blend with the car paint better

      The cops up there don't mess with you for that? They would stop you in a heartbeat around here... By law you can't even have a frame that blocks any part of the license plate.

      I know it's a small touch, but the automatic folding mirrors are one of my favorite options that came on the car. It's always the first thing people notice.
