I only did the grilles......the chrome gills tie in with the wheels. If I change to black wheels I'll change the gills as well. I wouldn't change my configuration......Phil

Congrats Ben. But how come your SSII really looks like a standard silver instead of the light silvery-blue that I'm used to seeing?

This is my intention as well, keep the gills, but black the grills. My MW will be here late next week (after PCD pickup and drive home) I will be installing black front grilles and swapping out the OEM exhaust for a modded OEM exhaust with black tips. The only chrome left on the car will be the gills.

The wait after ED and now for PCD is killing me!

Ben, congrats on the new ride. She looks purdy. Glad you're out of that Dodge Avenger.

Thanks Tom

Turns out, I'm going to copy you (although in SSII) on your color scheme.

Here's a couple more after a few, slight, aesthetic mods. Crappy photographer, crappy day, dirty car... whatevs.







Gloss black grills, SSII reflectors, and SSII side markers with tinted lenses... not sure how I feel about it all... thoughts?

Are you going for the total color matched look? Also, how did that back window turn out in regards to the tint job?................Phil

The tint itself looks great. Gary did a great job. The rear windshield is not finished, though, and I'm heading up on Saturday morning so he can finish the job (paint the top section). Oh, while I'm up there, I'm going to be adding some 359 GTS wheels to my car .

Oops.

Anyone have any Edition or matte black kidneys/side gills I could test out?

That car looks familiar . Now you're just making it even more difficult to resist my already strong temptation to order new wheels.
