    Finally worked on the exterior chrome this weekend...

    Painted the chrome in the headlights and the orange marker satin black.
    Black plastidip on the grills.
    Gloss black vinyl on the hood grill piece.
    Tinted tail lights.
    Painted chrome trunk trim satin black.

    I wanted to keep some red to the tail lights and not have them blacked out completely. I am going to wet sand and buff a little bit more to really get a high gloss on them. I also have a some fogging in the passenger side head light but I know the source...so that will be taken care of tonight. Now I just need to get the side fender vents and window trim taken care of...(and my wheels to come in)

    Now I need to do something about all of these power mods piling up in the house...

    Thanks guys. It is amazing how little changes can effect the overall look of the car. Now the 6-7 week wait on the wheels...

    Which ones did you end up ordering? ADV1's? Us poor bastards buying TSW's can live vicariously through your wheels. LOL

    ADV.1 ADV6.2 Track Spec SL in matte black centers with gloss black barrel/lip with brushed hardware. I'm pretty stoked.

    What size rear tire is that in the picture? Stock size? Looks bigger for some reason.

    Winter tires. Trying to wait until the new wheels come in to buy new tires since I don't want to put DD tires on the stock ones.

    Nice! I'm not really a fan of the "murdered out" look, but that is nice. I might have to think it over...
