I have been wanting to do a white one for a while...
I own a small business that restores lightly damaged Elements... this is number 101
The color is a 2005 Honda CRV color.. taffeta white, done in single stage... I like single stage paint for solid colors (I like the look better)

Looks great. That's about as much contrast between black and white as you can have with the white paint and large black panels. The gray wheels are a nice touch too.

Nice! Has a very clean look to it. It's different in a good way!

My son has a 2004 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor. (Former Sebastian FL Police car.)

Made me think your white Element could be mistaken as a former Police vehicle too! : - )

Yes I always refinish the black plastic... over time they fade and look washed out.
I clean them thoroughly... blow out any water from the seams... mask them off... clean them again with grease and wax remover... and shoot them with three coats of this...

It looks like you painted the stock wheels. If so, what color and what paint?

Bruce... I have seen cars I have down 2+ years ago and they look perfect... It is a professional plastic paint and when applied properly and after the sun works on it... it's permanent.

FEA... I use Dupli-Color wheel paint - can get it at Oreillys auto parts - and again - prep is the key.

I should probably do a whole post with photos - its not as easy as you would imagine.
