Some of you may remember this project from my previous thread "Metz's 05 White Tib". I didn't put much thought into that one that my tib wouldn't be white forever ;). But to the more Important things, I will start the thread with the say I bought it. The second I walked into the lot and saw it sitting there the ideas started flowing and I knew I had to have it. It's been a slow long build so far with some bumps in the road but hey, it's coming along :). Hope you enjoy and follow me through my modding

I know its kind of hard to see the actual finish on the paint for the lack of sun. But I can honestly say this thing is going to POP this summer.



This picture was taken in my passenger door, BEFORE it was even wetsanded, buffed, or polished.


Don't mind the orange peel lol

personally I liked it too. BUT, there are two other tibs in my area that also have a white/black scheme... sooo... I needed to do something to separate myself. and I am not done yet :).

Oh, don't get me wrong, AWESOME paint job man. and if there are a lot of white Tibs around, I completely understand the need to stand out. I have yet to see a white tib here in DFW. Although I know that they exist. Keep up the awesome work.
Tib looks awesome! Now its time for some go fast mods ;)
mmmm.... new shiny paint job :Jess:
:notbad: I must say, that is one good looking Tiburon you have there sir.
It was much needed prime lol
I liked the white too. But no denying a new paint job is better than an old one. Is that charger black?
