    Interesting. Still lean towards no. I'm with you on the hood though!

    The hood though, I think it needs to be seen in motion (post a video of the car in motion with the hood at various angles).
    I'm sure people would also have their reservations about my hood:

    I think that hood fits that car well. Are those projectors aftermarket? How bout those red calipers? How'd you have them done. I'm thinking of having mine done either red or blue. The v calipers come in silver.

    Thanks Guy

    The hood was made my MPD Inc and is fiberglass on top of the OEM structure, it's a copy of the 2002 Camaro SS hood (it even uses the same hood grille and is as functional as a ram air hood can be on a sideways motor).

    The calipers are a dual piston setup (from a 2002 Camaro Z28 supposedly could have used corvette C5 brakes too but couldn't find a donor as cheap as these were -free- as I was owed a favor from a guy at the salvage yard) to replace the stock single piston setup. Just had to re-tap the Camaro caliper bracket to 14mm from 12mm bolts and it bolted right up and was a decent improvement.

    I sprayed them with high temp paint after cleaning them up then mounted them. Caliper color choice really depends on the color of your car. I think yours is black if memory serves correctly. I did an obvious black and red theme on my car, so red fits mine. Whichever color you choose make sure to pick one that you can continue to accent it elsewhere if desired. I think the yellow brembos look really good on a black car.

    The headlights I did a custom retrofit of HID projectors into the stock reflectors. I've done this to the 02 Deville DTS that I had and my girl's 03 Jetta.

    Re: Sneak Peek of the Cosmetic Surgery

    Wow interesting stuff on that Monte Carlo.

    High temp paint.. Where can I get it and how long can I expect it to stay on there before I have to reapply? Does it have a shine to it like the paint on the car?

    My car is indeed black. I'd say yellow calipers are nice with black rims. I'd like to go red but nowadays kias have red calipers from the factory if you order them. Although they're not nearly as big as mine. That's why I was thinking blue.

    http://ls1tech.com/forums/cadillac-c...alipers-2.html

    Scroll to near the bottom of the page.

    Now I have to find a way to keep the v logo on there. Stencil?

    Also, I've discovered that the dealer did a shoddy job of spraying my rims before selling the car to me because there is overspray on the calipers. It partially covers the v logo. Gotta figure that one out too.

    Re: Sneak Peek of the Cosmetic Surgery

    Don't know if this was asked yet but are you planning on cutting out the center of the rear bumper for the V-coupe exhaust to fit into? Personally I think it looks silly hanging down like that...

    Yes, the muffler is going to be raised up about 2 inches & the bumper will wrap around the sides of the tips.
