    Possible mods - opinions?

    Thinking about doing some appearance mods on my DeVille, so I photoshopped the ideas on a recent photo.

    Here's what the car looks like now:



    After tinting the rear windows, and adding some new spoke wheels and blackwall tires, it would look something like this...

    The tint is a no-brainer. Definately go for that. The 5 spoke tires look nice too. Maybe go up to an 18".

    They'd actually be wheels, not covers. These are actually Corvette wheels. Changing the perspective of a flat shot in photoshop makes them look like hubcaps.

    tint looks terrific and suits the car. Wheels should not be any larger than 17 inches, if you want the lines to continue to "flow". Anything bigger than 17s would just look out of place and kinda funny. IMO anyway - and you did ask for our opinions,,,,,,,

    ow much does it cost to do a tinting? I have a 95 Eldo, and I am looking for a ballpark price. Or should I just call the "tinter".

    you got it, prices are different in different areas, you cant really ballpark unless youve done the car before or see it in person to see how much glass you have to tint and the shape of the glass, i dont know anything about tinting, but yea

    Definite yes on tint. But I like the stock hub caps on those cars. You might go with the real spoked wheels that came as an option back then, or something close to it.

    Actually noahsdad, if you want to take Elvis up on his design suggestions, I happen to have a set of those wired hubcaps, with the wreath/crest centre caps on a burgundy background that I could let go for,,say $200.00. But I'm flexible. I'll take more!
