He wasn't going to paint the damn thing. I was sick of seeing him driving around town with the grey front end. So, I convinced him go to Bennys and buy some damn spray paint. Yeah, it's half DCM and half semi gloss black, but it's much better than DCM, grey primer front clip with DGGM bumper.

The car's getting there Ted. It runs well and is fairly clean. Now we've got to spray the rest.

Here's a few I snapped..

Please don't do the chrome tape. It would have looked better without painting over it. Now the whitewalls look out of place. We'll have to go to the tire shop one night and flip them over.

I regret having the body shop paint over the chrome bumper trim on my black 9C1. It looks soo good with non black wheels. Otherwise, it just looks like another impala...

You can get that back bumper trim I'm pretty sure from some websites, new GM parts. I KNOW I just saw it for sale someplace.

Ted the car looks a million times better, keep up the good work. That grille looks great too...I'd like to see a close up shot but I can tell it's pretty damn nice for what you paid with free shipping to boot, lol. I should get one for my white car just to have at that cost. I've got a chrome one that I need to finish redoing the mounts on already (they were broken, fixed with Quickplastik (?) and have to drill holes), plus the black and white original one that I painted.

The rest of the paint looks good, but make sure to do even thin coats from a further away distance or it will come out too blotchy. Can't really sand the satin black so it's gotta be done careful! I think it still looks nice w/those whitewalls. Do you take those GTS covers off at night? Laughing
