    Still would have exhaust cut outs. He has CTS V coupe tips exiting the center...either way he would have to fill the bumper.

    Yeah I suppose so, it just would have been less of an area to fill I believe.

    [QUOTE=ITSQUIK;10655097]I didn't want those inserts with the reflectors. I want it to be completely smooth.

    I can actually go 325 if I want. I'll see how it works. Lol[/QUOTE
    Yeah I have 22x11s and 295s are stretched like 305 won't help so 315 on a 12 wont do it justice lol

    Rear bumper Body Work done. I won't be able to take the pics of where the rear door meets the panel for a couple days cause it's all covered in plastic.

    I hope so, but I'm trying to make the mods as subtle as possible, after all it is still a Cadillac. There are a ton of them but they don't smack you in the face. Lol, after its painted it all should really flow well. I guess we will see. I'll keep the in-progress pics coming. Thanks for checking it out.

    It may be hard to beat DD for the most mods, yet all genuine GM.

    He does have a lot of them and they appear to be very high quality work.


    PontiacV8 might have 2 mods that DD (or anyone else) may never have (or perhaps want) being his SLS China tails and propane fuel hybrid conversion from GM.

    No Sir, Lol. Doing a custom low profile cowl induction. I was gonna do a V hood but everything else on the car is 1-off so I don't think it would've done the car justice. I should have some pics this weekend of the hood progress.
