Is the Plasticoat sticky or smooth to wash? The dip stuff is sort of rubbery and sticky so i wonder.

WOW!! I usually don't like the blacked out look (especially on black cars) your grill work makes the car look awesome

The cadillac logo I removed it before I painted the grille. It's just double face tape. I wet sand it a little bit and put very light coat of primer waited 15 minutes repeat same process and then sprayed it glossy black. Here is another picture
of the almost finished project. Monday I am putting in the spring and wheel spacers and making it look really aggressive. Yes @ Reeper I live in Pembroke Pines West. NOw let me show you my wife's new ride. :yup::yup:

WOW! The SLS looks amazing as does your car!! I just traded in my E55 for a 2010 Black Raven CTSV sedan. I'm out in west pines also (Silverlakes) so let me know if you want to meet up and talk shop lol!

I have a few things coming in next week, Stainless Works catback, Araid intake, 9.55" lower pulley,isolator bushing, 160 t-stat, Trinity tuner, along with Eibachs and spacers too.

Reeper
04-02-12, 09:14 AM
yeah, the black roof gives it that MB Panoramic look, I like it! I wish i could do it but my car is black haha!

I saw you this morning turning onto Pines, I was heading home (dropped off kids at school) haha!

04-02-12, 09:37 AM
i never see any v's around pines, we should do a pines V-meet

Reeper
04-02-12, 09:50 AM
thats funny because my wife called me yesterday and asked me why I was driving past her so fast and I replied "that wasn't me I'm at Walmart"! haha!
And another buddy of mine turned into the boaters park on Friday close to me because he thought it was me too (NOT lol)!

but we should all meet up, just have to get everyones schedules to coincide!

04-02-12, 01:12 PM
That's so funny i was going to the gym lol

vade_R
04-03-12, 01:39 AM
nope…. never owned a Supra, always wanted to, i have a light blue S2K, and the White V. I'm easy to spot b/c of my tag "1 fast V"

Reeper
04-03-12, 09:45 AM
lol ok, reason I asked was I knew a guy (w/ Supra) who's tag read "VADE" ! But that was years ago. I always see a light blue S2K real low w/black rims everywhere lol!

If you guys see a black V sedan w/ tag "REEPER-6" thats me lol!

vade_R
04-03-12, 07:38 PM

One Love - I respect just about every Cadillac that ever rolled off the assembly line and yours is one proud example for sure. I may find exception with the Cimarron; that was a product of GM Engineers on a serious hangover and the Catera is/was nearly as bad.

Nice Photo!
