    Finished my outside of my car! What do you think?

    This is what I have had done. I listened to Tomko and went with the splash guards (painted). I listened to Superjim and had the fake chrome grill painted. I also had the top XM/Onstar receiver & front tag holder painted. I put headlights in the fog lights that match & are not too bright. (http://www.autoanything.com/lights/7...3-001b2166c2c0) I also put on glossy black pillars over the dull stock, I liked them more than the chrome (http://www.ebay.com/itm/230690761665...ht_1739wt_1263). Then I put a chrome grille on the lower part. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/2006-2009-CA...ht_1727wt_1263). I let you know where I got this from just in case you like! I call her the White Out! I was thinking about painting the pillars white as well.

    Looks Awesome!

    I would have kept the lower grille original. Bright bold edges of the lower grill kinda stick out too much to my perspective.

    Very Pretty none the less.

    VERY NICE LOOKING CADDY... I too have a white caddy... I CALL HER "PALOMA BLANCO" which means WHITE DOVE in Spanish... lol it's trademarked ...
    I like all that you have done to your WHITE OUT~! (had you put a new tag sticker with year 14 on it?)
    I'm a little confused when you say YOU put the headlights in the fog lights. is it just unplugging the fog lights and plugging H10 headlights!?! something that can take ten minutes?

    Re: Finished my outside of my car! What do you think?

    Caddilukking, all you have to do is take the bottom guard off & the fog lights are right there. I would say it would take ten if you can jack it up, if you have to do it from your back in the yard it might take five more. It's really that easy & the link I provided the bulbs match the headlights instead of that dull stock light. Good luck!!

    all is good but don't do the pillars, might be a bit much, but....that being said ...some 20' white rims would look sharp as well.

    A good window tinting would be great.

    Yours always looks great Jim, for 2006 only Cadillacs can look so new for so long. In a prior thread 3 or 4 weeks ago I asked you if it was Diamond Pearl like mine and never got a response, but I'm sure it is. Love how it looks at night, how the color changes during the day.

    Sorry I didn't answer you.
    I too like how it changes color in different ligh conditions..

    For 2006 and PART of 2007 they had "White Lightning"...which is what mine is.
    It is WHITER than "White Diamond"... the White Lightning paint does not have the cream tint to it that the White Diamond has.
