July 2012 G8 of the month winner, Rican219!!

Congratulations to Rican219!




First I would like to thank everyone who voted for me it is an honor. Every month I go in a vote for people and find that there are so many awesome looking cars that it is sometimes VERY difficult to vote for just one. With the birth of my baby girl this past year I haven't been able to mod much just a little here and there but I should also have the car paid off by the end of this year so then I'm going to be going nuts!!! Thanks again everyone and I look forward to seeing next months entries.

The car looks amazing. Where did you get the ground affect that's under the front bumper?

I think that ground effect under the front bumper is the front splitter from the group buy from a few months ago on the other forum.

A well deserved G8OTM winner; awesome pic!

Very nice looking car. I'm thinking about trying my hand with plastidip. Which is better, the aerosol can or the tube whatchamacallit?

With plasti-dip does the surface need to be prepped with something like duplicolor adhesion promoter or does one simply spray on and that's it?

Just make sure the area is clean. I also spray some rubbing alcohol just to make sure.

Just try not to spray to close it might cause it to look fuzzy
