It's highly dependent on technique, but the stuff is self-levelling and self-healing, so there's no need to worry about spots; when it dries it'll level itself out so you won't have splotches (to a reasonable amount of course.)

Instructions are to spray from 4~5" away - closer + more coats = smoother.
I know it might cost a little bit more but the results are way better and looks Factory just get them wrapped and gloss black

Never too much black when you're going for the blackout look. I have been working on getting my truck done so I have been falling behind on my post but I am continuing to black this thing out. I am looking to get new black wheels but I am going to get coilovers for it first to see what kind of stance I get and what wheels will flow best. I think your plan is great!
Here is a picture of my current project(2015 Ram 1500, white), just so you know what I am up to:) I have a lot of parts about to go on the truck so it will look much better. And an updated picture of the Civic! Which will be getting updates soon as well.

I love having both. The new 8 speed paired with the 5.7 Hemi is amazing, but when I want the gas mileage I just hope in the Civic. Plus, I am a finance manager for a Ram dealership and my fiance is a saleswoman for Honda. So might as well take advantage of the deals!

I love it !! The quickness of the turbo and the gas mileage is great I was talking recently to boomba racing and they're going to be making blow-off valves for the new civic as well.. the funny thing is I can't believe how much more room is in the 2 door Civic Coupe than my Mustang

I would love to have Boomba as a distributor. I was looking into getting a Focus ST and they make a good sounding BOV for them, so hopefully they can do the same for us. I love a good BOV.

I really wish I could upload pictures, but the forum will no longer let me for some reason. I installed the Injen intake two days ago. I wrapped the intake and heat shield in heat wrap to help with heat, since I got the short ram intake. I did not want to get the full CAI. I removed the resonator a while ago so that saved me some time. Again, I wish I could upload pictures. The car sounds amazing and almost has a BOV sound to it when letting off the throttle. Definitely a great purchase.
