    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    Thanks! Its lowered on ksport coilovers, the white wheels I had where bbs style 5 rc090 that where off of a bmw 3 series so the bolt pattern where 5x120 I had custom hubcentric wheel spacer adapters made to fit them..... but! The spacers where 1.5 inches wide so the wheels stuck out being they were also a 20 offset I had to roll the crap out of my fenders. they stuck out so far and only 17 inches made the center of my car lower than they looked and ended up scraping everywhere. I couldn't get the lowered look I wanted without scraping. The wheels now are forgestar f14 19x10 in the rears and 19x9 in the front with 20 offset and because the fenders where already rolled I had no rub issues. The roof rack is permanently attatched with yakima landing pad 7's. the pads are permanent but the bars and towers come off and there are caps that goes on the pads so if you don't mind 4 little nubs on your roof it works . The car is painted flat black the v bumper is dipped. Il get some pics of the pads on and off the car and post them in a bit.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    When I had bought the car one shock was bad and another was going bad. So I cant really comment on how it rode before. The k sports took some time to dial in to my likings. But being that it is such a heavy car when lowered it does not bounce around like most little imports you see. These pictures is showing the car as low as I could go with very minimal rubbing because it was for a car meet. I have yet to raise it back up... haha.

    Re: Post your best pics of your cts here!

    I had bought one of those cheapo wanna be v grills from ebay, installed and it just looked off... anyways I tore it apart took the chrome bezel from it and cut the tabs off the back and double side taped it to my stocker. But now that I think of it. I shouldve just drilled holes on the stock grill to accept the tabs. But either way I like it. Its different from a sports, v, or other aftermarket grill.

    Love the roof in black. I want to wrap the roof, hood, and trunk in a diff color vinyl (flat). Or dip the whole car flat grey. Can't decide.

    How do dip/wrap hold up against snow and salt?

    Also, any Michiganders know a shop that will dip/wrap my car?

    RobinC...car setup is dope, I just went a bit lower with a D2 install myself. I need bigger spacers in my rear however...also that ez-lip...how'd you attach yours? I used 3M heavy duty tape for mine but, it lasted all but a few weeks before it went mia...I might need to staple gun it in next time around lmfao.

    Re: Post your best pics of your CTS here!

    I dont know how plastidip will hold up to salt or snow. I'm in central california. But for the past couple of months im surprised to say its held up to lots of road debris and heavy rain people rubbing not believing its plastidip pressure washing with 1500 psi. I think the reason why some people have bad result in plastidip is the prep process. Just make sure to use dishwashing soap and warm water to get all the wax off your car and wipe is thoroughly with denatured alcohol. And when spraying take your time!!! What it doesnt hold up good to is bird droppings. Do not leave it for more than a day cause when you go to wipe it off the plastidip will start to lift and crinkle if you arent careful.

    The e-z was only attatched for a day.. haha... with the 3m tape and some self tapping screws.... actually it only lasted for one day I should say... haha if you noticed my car was kissing a leaf... had it on for my buddies shop grand opening car meet it ripped off as soon as I left the parking lot.
