Here is the newest mod that im thinking of.

My front end is soo aggressive it leaves the back end looking plain.

So I tried some Gloss Black Vinyl in the back and re-applied my Retro SS emblem.

Ill leave it for a bit, if i really like it ill have it painted on to match all the other black. If i dont, ill just peal it off.

Whats everyone think?.....Opinions Welcomed and encouraged!

Great pictures Tim!

I personally like the rear black out, and I agree there needs to be some balance between the front and back.

Thanks, the back seemed just soo plain compaired to the rest of the car. This was the easiest/cheapest thing i could do to change it up a bit.

I have after burners as well and does not take away the effect at all. I can post some pics if you like. I went with a tint from Big Worm Graphics and think darkest they provide. I run my burners anytime I take car out during the day and they look great!! (Like to run my side markers and After Burners when ever I can)

I think the black in back looks good, but would be better if it wrapped the taillights and went down to the bumper line. Leaving the bezels chrome would pop that back side.

I would also try out the LS9 style blackout in the rear Tim like i have and see if you like it? It's looks more aggressive than the style of just the rear deck blackout!

Yea not a huge fan of the whole LS9 style. Wasnt really a fan of the smaller version but the back end of my car needed something to catch up with the front end being so aggresive!
