    Easy enough to set the camber. Just jam it all the way in to get the -1.5.

    a can of plasti could let you see if you really want to go black without really committing

    This. I would do plasti first though. I bet a lot of those curves would be tricky with vinyl.

    black window trim would look great i agree. i did it on my old maxima, it took less than an hour with 3M window trim blackout tape and it worked/looked amazing

    The trim is thin enough to when working with the vinyl, the material could stretch easily around the curves on the top window trim sections. I would do 4, 1-2inch wide strips.

    So i pulled the fender well clips at the top of the fender on each side, no more tire rubbing, still probably going to install the camber kit but less of a rush to do it at this point

    You're rubbing a bit? Just the front or both F & R?

    Just the fronts were rubbing on speedbumps and stuff, i could go lower but since the tires/wheels extend a little past the fender id have to do some hella flush style camber

    Whats your alignment currently? And what size tires are you running?

    I could make a road trip and bring my fender roller. I can also bring my grinder and we can shave those rears a bit. Trust me, I've done this once before, hahahahah.
