    Photoshopped a little last night just for fun. Though this is the upper and lower grill I am currently in the process of building. Not sure what I will do with the emblem yet.

    Nice ride! I've always liked that color on these cars. Do you have any pics with the weathertech window deflectors? I'm curious to see what they look like on these cars.

    ^Thanks! Yes I was hoping to find White on Morello but didn't think it would happen. Here's a couple pics, they are pretty low profile. I need to tint my windows.

    I like the Vsport engine cover Cadillac sells for the ATS but I wasn't going to pay $300+ for a fancy piece of plastic, so I made my own. Tedious masking needed but not too bad.

    Re: STM's 2014 ATS 2.0T 6MT

    I have been inactive for a while, house was taking up most my time and then just getting car parts painted and installed was another long ordeal. BUT I think it was worth it and I am happy with the outcome and seeing my car shape up to be the way I want it. Was hoping to update my 1st post with all this info but I see this is one of those forums that locks posts after a certain period of time has elapsed. Argh. Anyway, a few pics. Neeless to say, can't wait to upgrade wheels lol.
