    We will post your request tomorrow. It should really help you decide if you want to do this or not. We actually did the same thing for GMX322V S/C and it really help bring his vision to reality.

    Thanks,

    I actually like the amount of chrome we have stock. But that looks really nice as well...

    Looks awesome. I am going to do those wheels on my black V1. I see that D3 did your trim but did you do the grill yourself? I'm probably leaving my trim alone but doing wheels, tint and the grills.

    D3 did my grilles also. They've been very diligent about finding the best way to prep the surfaces and in choosing the base and finishing coats for looks as well as resiliency.

    Coolness. What's involved in popping the grills in and out. Seems like it would be simple.

    I believe the front fascia has to come off. I'm told it's relatively simple, but still a two-person job because of its size.

    Looks killer. I love it. The only thing I would do differently on my car is use the same black chrome on the grille and trim as the wheels, instead of the matte black, like the CTS-V wagon has.

    I had considered that, but was concerned about durability. I was told that the front grille meshes and the side trim pieces are plastic coated with a "metalized film," so although they could be black chromed, it might "wear off" over time. If the "brow" over the front upper grille and the trunk trim are actually metal, then I might consider black chroming them in the future.
