Second coat of paint before the tape was removed. The grill still needs to be painted at some point in the future.

Taping off for the blue lines was really tedious. But this step decides how the final product will turn out so make sure to focus on this step. Press the tape firmly against the bus to help eliminate drips.

First coat of paint on the blue lines. I used a regular paint brush. The foam brush wasn’t working well for me.
