Yeah so im a poser... stop whining like a little girl about people having the same bumper covers as your V.

Painted it in my driveway with a tiny gun... Got a few runs which i will sand off and buff. Ive got 4 coats of clear on it. I did have to catch the bugs and pull them off with a needle.

Used this gun, my brother in law has my good devilbliss.

I was thinking about leaving it black... not sure.
I can color match the grill whenever... I kinda like the black, kinda gives it a mean look. I also had some black side turn signals so I threw those on.

Yeah it was just painted yesterday so I cant wet sand buff yet. I went heavy on the clear just for this which caused a little orangishness :) I was kinda worried about my fingers putting it on but so far so good.

I join you in regards to being a Poser! I was so obsessed with becoming a V poser, that i purchased the V bumper and fogs before i even bought my CTS.

i think that grill would look good black if you did this black too.

I really think you should do something about that black. Or make something else black to match it.

Aside from you sounding like a douche in your first post, the bumper looks pretty nice. I like Tommy C's p-chop job and think it'd look killer. Either that or standard V series grills but powder coated black.

Nice job btw!

yeah I like the black lip trim... hmmm flat looks good though.

I can gloss that hood lip pretty easy.

And I guess I might as well tint the headlights if im gonna leave it black. I almost wish I would have flat blacked that sport grill.

I think if I do this I better put some black on the v rear bumper slots...
