if you go with the eBay caps they are going to be gloss black! Don't know how that would look.

Looks good. I'd stay with the painted caps. I have the ebay ones and they go better with gloss black powdercoat. How long do you think those V stickers are gonna last?

Awesome V. I really like what you did with the colors. I think you made the right choices on painting the center caps.

I am really contemplating on getting the black lugs. I just don't know. I have the YGMS fogs and sides but my buddy ordered the side markers off E Bay and they are actually pretty good quality. Here is a link.

Leave the Painted Black Caps... It looks good. But you def. need the Ebay Side Markers, and Blacked out Fogs. GC kit wouldnt hurt either!! ;)

I was thinking of taking my Stock lens's over to a Plastic Fab shop and seeing what they could do, Maybe save some $$ off the STS-V Fogs. I like my YGMS ones, they are just BLACKED OUT - and I wanted something lighter - If I can get some Made I can sell you my Blacked out lens's. Would look sick on your car.

Looks like I'll be giving a few people a Ride that Day - Luckily I know of a few members there that will have GC setup just like mine, even a few that have a maggie too - :thumbsup: I want to go for a Ride in those!!

Let me just take the time to tell you how much I enjoy these pictures and look forward to the creative minds of those on this forum and how they apply their ideas to our fine automobiles.

BRAVO!
Really?? :suspense:
