    Ok, well my white DSM has a good amount of body damage. IMHO I think dents make aq car look like sh**. They ar epretty bad. The passanger quarter panel and fender are messes up and the rear bumper has kinda big dent. I was wanting to replace them but i don't have money to paint them yet. I plan on painting to whole car eventually. So should I get new primer parts or wait to get them painted or wait till i just get the wholl car painted to replace the parts? Just wondering some other peoples opinions on it. would primer parts look better then the dented parts i have now?
    Sorry, i didn't know in what section to put this in

    I'm rocking all primer right now..... well until next week when it goes into paint. Its all about how much you hate the look of primer. Just remember to seal the primer or you be in trouble later.

    Remember, the quarter panel is not a bolt on part. You'll have to fix that on the car. Also, driving you car with straight parts on it untill your ready to fix it all give it more time to screw up your nice parts.

    I don't mind the look of primer. I don't like the look of my dents though. I believe they are sealed and but are a darker gray, almost black. That's what my friend told me about the place i'm going to get them at. I know the quarter panel isn't a bolt on. I was going to remove it aand get a shop to weld it on if I can't get a friend to weld. It may be a while before i can paint it because i'm a broke college student. I'll post some pictures of it when i get a chance.

    Go with the primer panels for now. Primer looks better than beat up panels IMO.

    You could just get the new parts, do a rattlecan paint job for now. I've done a gloss black krylon spray paint job on a friends jeep before and it came out looking pretty good. I'll see if I can get some pictures of it.
