    Plasti dipped grill, wheels, all chrome on 08 Blue Chip CTS

    I finally got my plasti-dip in from dipyourcar.com with the Gray anthracite so I did my wheels and front fog lights with it. My intentions were to do all chrome with the gray but I grew inpatient waiting on them to arrive so I did the rest in black. I did the front grill all black and only left the Cadillac shield on the emblems and outer lip chrome. I even did the middle section where a front license plate would bolt up and it makes it look like one big grill up front...very cool IMO. I may go back in the spring and do the window moldings and all the chrome on the back in gray but the black works for now. I used the Plasti-dip SMOKE on the wheels and taillights and it just looked patchy. The taillights looked good with the glossifier coat but the light output from the taillights looked very patchy at night so I peeled it off. I will probably give the taillights a light coat of VHT and call this done this spring.

    I don't see many blue chip CTSs on here so I wanted to show what one looks like without all the chrome. Besides opening up the headlights I can't really do anything else to darken it up more.
    You like?

    Love it! Also have a blue chip and has been difficult to find photo's of them modded! As for darkening her up, maybe a light tint on the windows?
