ok, so here its all:
i started by cutting the nipples
this is how it looked... like a hack job...
i said, what the hell... imma just do it "right" or at least presentable! and started covering
by night time, i just had to finish covering and cutting tape!
after running tape, i used a blade to just leave the runners unmasked
sanding time... started with 60, then 150, then 220, then 400
filler plastic added...
after it was sanded smooth and evenly, i removed the tape and proceeded to wash the mani.
covering again with new tape for a proper paint job with a clean mani.
now its time to prep the OR
first coat of paint.
removing the masking tape
all removed! oem+
Close up: it aint perfect, but better than how it was (nipples) and you have to be CLOSE to see the impefections... Not bad for a job on the street!
i love the fact that it looks VERY close to OEM... whch means? OEM+!
