    I just noticed a couple areas on the liquid red need touchups. What touchup paint suppliers do you recommend? I also checked out the frame and it's largely rust free but thinking I'm going to paint with rust bullet this winter, when I'm not busy doing other stuff. probably going to sand the...

    I'm a novice when it comes to waxing but the car hasn't been waxed in a couple years. What kind of wax do you recommend for a beginner? Also, is ok to DIY carwash then air dry it on the freeway real quick and bring it into the shade then wax it? Or would that pick up dirt? No dirt roads or...

    While I'm new to the forum, the G8 is not new to me. It's been in my family 10 years now and about 5 years ago the paint on the Pontiac logos on the center caps began to flake off. Fast forward to now, I've just picked the rest off to make it look better. Has anyone found a way to replace this...

    Hey all, I've got wicked paint chips on the front of my G8, and I'm not so much concerned about the looks; I'm just concerned that the clear coat will come off, and then corrosion is going to happen. I've read posts on this here before but I just wanted to get everyone's latest opinion as...

    Hi, The paint on our G8's deficiency has been well documented... everything from chipping easily, to falling off the plastic parts "in sheets". I understand that GM (Holden) used water-based paints on these cars. Does that include the clear-coating as well? And is the clear-coat considered...

    Please excuse if this is a re-post. I thought I posted this earlier but I cannot find it. Anyway... The front calipers on the GXP are painted silver from the factory. I am going Red. Is there anything I need to do to make sure that the paint sticks other than sand the existing paint?

    I know many have us have complained about how crappy the paint is on our cars. I am now so fed up with the road rash I am looking into a repaint of the hood and the front end. The question I brought up to some of the guys in CCG8 was to stay with the waterbased crap from the factory, or go with...

    Anyone found that their side mirror paint is badly faded? Its look as though clear coat is gone and looks matte black. I have a Black G8 in Michigan. Im wondering if its the car wash I take it to. It so bad it doesn't even match the car anymore. Did I get a bad egg?
  15. Wheels / Tires
    I recently purchased a set of mint GXP wheels. Because they are in perfect condition, I am reluctant to use a permanent paint/powdercoat to transform them into black wheels. So, I am considering Plastidip (easy application). I have used Plastidip for the front grill surrounds. What are my...
