Looks nice! BBS wheels?

Whats up with the exhaust tips? I had that happen with my GMPP kit, but I shimmed the hanger to even them out again.

Also... Did you paint the trunk then leave the two triangles where you have the spid label? I think you can have them remade at the dealer if you need them. I'd just photograph + put a copy in the service manual.

I wish i had enough money for BBS wheels haha, they are replicas made by a Jap company called GP Racing, the exhaust is for a 08 SS so they are a bit beefy i think thats why they look a bit wierd in pictures they are even i might have just taken the pics crooked. And i was going to do that for the trunk but i kind of liked the triangles in the middle....... i dont know why.

The "triangles" somewhat mimic and pick up on your JL logos on the subs...that's how I see it,anyway...IMHO,it looks good. Smile

Love the tails. Try the 3rd brakelight cover/decal in silver from the NAIOA shop...
I suspect it would look good,as well.

Please DO NOT take this the wrong way...but,for me,personally,that is not a step ahead. I would rate that part of your car fairly low.

I've been on the fence about the Black Impala Script on the doors,and I would go for something other than the "blacked out" stock grille...not sayin' I don't like the semi-blacked out touches you got goin' on...but,you did ask for opinions.

Hell,I'm sure you and everyone else here could pick mine apart,but,that's what makes it fun...personalizing it,and tryin' to do stuff just a lil' different. Always a work in progress.

Thanx,

P A Tyson

I'm with him on that, really. I added a body-colour third taillight cover that just has the Impala script in it, then debadged the rear of the car. I don't really have any current pics, but I'm sure you get the idea.

I'm not a fan of third brake lights in general, really. I've never seen one and felt that it added to the look of the car. I check my bulbs regularly and trailers are legally required to have their own brakelight. I wish the third wasn't required on vehicles.

I think they are a nice safety feature.

I check my bulbs regularly as well, but that doesn't account for everyone elses. It also helps differentiate between running lights and brake lights if you're cresting a hill or coming around a corner up to someone.

I'm not sure about the added black, but the contrast is interesting.
