    I like it...especially the contrast of the Black on White. It just screams.."Let's run out to LA for a week or two!!"

    Also looks as if the headlamp housings are in need of "clearing the fog".

    Great looking Eskie.

    Yeah the driver headlight is is worse shape. I was thinking of a black housing headlight but I am not sure if there is a decent one made. Most of the "cloudyness" seems to be on the inside of these lights. I have sanded them down a few times ...


    thanks for all the comments.

    Nice plates also remove the drl or turn/running light bulb to gain access to make pouring the water in easier
    Ps where did you get the black caddy logo disc on the back?

    I just painted it. Everything that is black is done with "plast-dip". This way it could all be removed and the chrome is preserved.

    Your Caddy looks great, I've been reading up on the Plasi-Dip stuff, seems to be the "in" thing right now on all the car sites. Some people are doing entire cars with the stuff haha. Your front grille looks good, I might do that with mine, do you have any close up pics of it? How many coats did you use?
    Maybe it's my cheap monitor at work but your right rear door looks a different shade of white in all those pics?? Has it ever been repainted?

    Lol. I really don't know what happened in that pic in the door. The sun I guess. It's never looked like that before so I dunno. Lol. The plasti-dip stuff is simple. It's pretty much a can per wheel. And one for the grill. I did a light coat then a heavier one on the second. Then just touched it up on the last coat. It's great stuff. It peels off as if it was coated in a vinyl decal. I can get some close up pics after the weekend. I have driven it from NY to Fl and no chips. Part of the characteristic of the plasti-dip makes it almost "rubbery". I have been pleased with the product and the results.
