that's one giant ass bumble bee! lol. i'm impartial to the rims, i'm sure they look better in person then in pictures so i can't really judge em. i love the grill though. i like how you blacked out the center bar! got any more close up shots of the grill?

that looks nice man, i love the way it opens the grill up. as for my sig... lol, it's a photoshop. but i will hopefully be going full shaved trunk this summer. fully debadged and shaved keyhole ;) . it's either that or carbon fiber trunklid partially painted. in which case the keyhole would have to stay since i can't mess with cf. i love the way the shaved keyhole looks though, that's why i originally did the chop, and then i made a sig out of the pic without realizing it. i like it though, so it's staying my sig :cool:

I am on the fence about the wheels (I'd prefer a lip) but the grill is a HUGE style improvement. On mine it wouldn't matter because it is black, so I chose the billet aluminum grill, but on yellow, that is really nice. Good job.

I am working on that very same project. shaved trunk! the wing is off already for it was sold last night. I love driving now. I can see if a cop is behind me and I can fan out the side mirrors. the look it catching on to more than ever. Oh the antenna is going to be shaved too. and the final touch - Eibach sportlines. it is going to look sweet. pics will be coming soon on this victory red cobalt with ne look. Hope you dont mind if I paint the center grill like you did? that looks great. I will make the bow tie red as well! I think that would look great but if not I will paint it black as you did. thanks.

PS nice SS emblems too ;)

its nice to know that people can still notice the little things i do to make the car more unique to my name. also i think you said something about the grills being what our cars needed...i was really tryin to wait for someone else to do it b4 i did because i was really nervous about layin down some spraypaint on my baby....but i just couldnt wait...i had done a photoshop of it...actually it was a paint shop...ghetto photoshop...and it came out effin sexy..so i bought some paint and went to work the next day.

The Alex: You shouldve kept some part of it chrome to set off the fenders or at least give it some unique looking flare.

i actually tried this...it was how i origionaly wanted them to look but taping off that little tiny lip the rims have and keep it a perfect curve all the way around was going to take more than an overnight project....so i said screw it...ill paint it all black and then go back with silver paint and paint those areas silver another night....but when i put them on all black it just looked soo mean i just decided to keep them that way.

Oh ok thats cool then its does look good though. You should paint the bowtie emblem thats in the middle of the rim yellow i think that would have a badass look to it especially with the yellow calipers. Just the bowtie though not the whole circular part.
