    pics of only gril blacked out? or grille and window trim?

    does anyone have a black cts-v that blacked out just their grill? or even grill and the trim around the window? most of the pics i see are almost fully blacked out. i'd like to see a black car with a blacked out grill but leaving the caddy symbol and wreath untouched.

    Best part is it's so easy. Just spray over the wreath and peel it off later.

    I went 1 step further and took the whole grill out/ left the chrome trim around the grille

    that looks reallllly good too. i find when too many things gets blacked out there's no contrast and it doesn't look that great. it's kind of cool to see a few different options. i'd still like to see a black car with the window trim blacked out and the grill except the emblem and wreath and see how that looks. stock wheels too. i'm just not big on window chrome on most cars for some reason.

    I have a white V coupe and now you guys are forcing me to do the same thing to mine, because it looks AMAZINGGGGGGGG. I just wish the pearl white paint was a brighter white and had less cream in it.

    to show the contrast between chrome trim exposed and covered.

    Looks awesome...exactly the same as my car, same pearl white & black grille. Looks 10000x better than the stock chrome IMO!

    that's so close to what i wanted to see. i just wish the chrome around the outside was black too on the top and bottom. and any side shots of black cars with the window trim blacked out?

    There are more than a few murdered out V's. They don't look good imo.
