Well I have been very bored lately so I decided to lower the car, paint the wheels, lower rear bumper, and mirrors black. I got a few decent pics at my house and figured I'd share with DC. All comments welcome good or bad and any suggestions will be noted. :partyon: enjoy




There is a weird little light spot on the wheels that looks unpainted but its just the camera.





The mirrors will be re-done in white sometime in the future...if anyone can do a quick ps of the mirrors or wheels in white I would greatly appreciate it. :cheers:

Car looks good. My lower rear is also black, im not a fan and will be painting it back to silver next week. Where did you get the black side marker covers? Or did you paint the lens?

Looks great, however not so sure why you would want to re-paint the mirrors (wheels?) white.

The black side markers were on the car when I bought it as well as the rest of the black out lenses so im not sure if they are painted or just aftermarket.

MSG C5 I think that a little white would make the whole car just pop. I would only do mirrors or wheels not both, the wheels are just more of a curiosity of how they would look. The whole white mirror look came from a race car paint scheme I saw that was red body black wheels and white mirrors and it just seemed to pop more than anything i've seen before so I want to see how it would look on my car. Also if it looks bad I can always redo the black. :cheers:
Thanks for the responses everyone I can't wait to start some power mods maybe even some F/I :devil:

Thanks everyone. Yea I really want some extra kick lol. I`m debating on a nice h/c/i setup or just skip that go F/I and be happy. I have really always wanted a car that you can't tell if its gonna die at the red light or is just stupid fast :smack so the debate will continue for now and I guess it depends on the wife and what she will allow. :cheers:

Thanks. The whole murder deal is really growing on me. I think the white would look good and help the car pop but like I said i dunno i might try it just to see. I have way to much free time right now :crazy:. If I try it I`ll be sure to post pics of both setups.

Car is gorgeous as is! As for power adders I would say it depends on your tastes and driving habits, but I must say the sound of a big cam is siiiiiick. I love mine... :devil:

Thanks, I wasn't sure on the mirrors at first but they have really grown on me the more I see it, I will hopefully get some better pics tomorrow to show it all together. :cheers:
