Removed plasti dip... keep changing my mind. Now I think the gold bowtie is iconic and I like the way it looks on this red.

The gt500 is a neighbor's. I think it is a 2008. Really kewl color in the sun....

Got the wheel locks today from Apex. 7/8 to remove OEM 13/16 to put in new ones. The lugs were NOT super tight. Took one grunt to remove with a 4way. Used a grunt and a half to put new ones on. And yes it has rained for several days.

I like the way the gold bow tie looks on the stock and heritage grill. Are the lugs painted? How many socket keys came with the set?

Why do you feel the dynamat is needed? Was the car too loud or had too many rattles? Or did you do this for the sound?

Makes the stereo sound better at lower volumes... less distortion that way. Also helps with road noise and vibrations. At some point I will pull carpet and add more. There is also an insulating benefit...

Was the flat black perfect match for the hood, oem upper/lower grille and front spoiler? Or do you think matte black would be better?

I'm thinking about doing the MnP 3M vinyl in matte black but looking to get a perfect match.

Like the new pics. And I def agree with taking off the vinyl on the hood.

I just finished plasti dipping the upper grille area and respraying the lower grille area. And I have hood spears. Thats enough black for me. I also got the ZL1 grille.

I like the upper grille plasti dip with a ZL1 grille alot more than with a stock grille

Thanks guys. The only plasti dip on the car at the moment are the mirrors and the bezels. That is the best part about the stuff. Easy on ad easy off when the mind changes.

Hey vroomapunk, are you doing the drag n lap this weekend?

Thumbs up

Tram,

Did you end up leaving them off (the tail light bezels,) or painting them black? After seeing your pics, I like them without.

Do they look right, without anything missing? I want to get those ZL1 extensions, btw; thanks for including those pics!

Thanks,

Tara

I plastidipped them black. I have also left them off before, looks a little unfinished up close but killer from a distance.
