    Just about finished with my V front conversion. Still need to get a few things like the headlight washer squirters and some grills to go over the brake duct openings. 1013506_10201423628137635_1643390184_n.jpg

    Thanks to this thread I was able to hunt down the correct parts.

    Very nice look! Have you considered painting/wrapping the roof silver too? That would really finish it off nicely!

    Thanks for the photo, Marv

    Funny, I thought about that today when I was drying the car off. I think I will do that and do a little gray on the rockers and just a little on the rear bumper....Although I do really want to do the coupe rear bumper.

    Doing the conversion soon, I have all the parts ordered, doing the hood and headlights as well. I have an extra upper and lower v grille for anyone that is going to do this conversion. It will save you A LOT of money

    I've read through all of the posts on this thread, viewed all the pictures (all your cars look phenomenal). The question I have is: has anyone done or seen a V conversion where they utilized the V rear bumper with exhaust cutouts in the middle of the rear bumper and modified their exhaust to fit this?

    I have an 2008 CTS Sedan that I would like to do the V conversion and the thought crossed my mind about the rear bumper.

    Nice overview and info. I don't think I'll be doing this any time soon but the learning is always appreciated.

    Mods how about a sticky for this in the appearance section.
