2005 Chevrolet Impala

Picked up a clean 2005 Impala a few weeks back, looking forward to the chatter.

I'm a moderator on FullSizeChevy.com and ModernCamaro.com. Looks like a few familiar faces here.

Had the SLP LSX grille on the car within the first week of ownership. Full tint is next up with some mild paint work to clean up the chips and scuffs.

There just is something special about the silver 05 model. Love em.

What do you have in store for fixing the paint chips and whatnot other than a detail?

Welcome!

Welcome from another Michigander. I used to be fairly active on fullsizechevy.com when I had my 99 and 01 Tahoes. Same screen name there.

Welcome!

Having a buddy do the paint work. Might have the darker lower rocker moldings painted to match while he's at it.

Window tint is a must. Looking to tighten up the suspension as well.
