Well last February I posted my last pic thread before the makeover HERE (http://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php?t=119375) Now it is 90% done. I planned to change the side skirts, hood, wheels, rear bumper, repaint my front bumper, strip the tint off, and paint my A-C pillars black to match my roof. Today I laid the first coat of gloss black onto them. So far it looks great. It will be clear coated and buffed by next weekend!

Just curious but, why did you strip the tint if you are gonna paint the a-c pillars black? wouldnt it be more of a solid black look if the tint was dark, lets say 10-20%?

I got sick of being stopped by the po' for window tint. Who knows, someday when my A4 is not daily driven I might put some 10% on there.

I also stripped my tint because it was turning purple and was scratched in a few places. I think it really cleaned up the look of my car.

I think they tryin' to catch you ridin' dirty!

Car looks good. What skirts you going for? S4?

Let me know how much your looking to get for that euro s4 rear and hood. Did you cutout the holes for your washer nozzles on the hood or whats the story with that?

I already have oettinger skirts on. This is the last step in my A4's makeover.

Also I do not have any washer holes. My oem hood does ( use that in the winter).
Here is a pic of the side skirts
