Your car is looking great Chris and you're also doing a great job with the pictures. I'm not sure how you do it, but your pics really capture the color well. It seems different than other pictures of the same exact color.

As soon as I can get some updated pictures with good lighting, I'm going to contact you about a new sig

Thanks Rob!,

All my photos are being taken with my iphone 4s actually. I then just resize them to 2048x1365 at 72 dpi (Facebook dimensions) and they come out very clear looking. I also adjust the color in photoshop because the camera doesnt capture the IOM that great in certain sunlight. Ill be on the lookout for you PM

Update:
Will be installing the GM GFX this Thursday and cant wait! My father will be creating some brackets for the exhaust bezels to bolt onto due to the fact the brackets that once held the bezels were broken/snapped either through shipping or ripping them off to ship since i purchased the GFX used. Gotta do a little DIY work on it but should look brand new and youll never know it.

Update:

Decided to get away from the chrome look on the GFX bezels and plasti dip them as well as plasti dip the rear diffusor fins black. I wasnt feeling the orange look across the whole rear back side, to me it seemed to much and needed to be broken up a bit and i think this did the trick. Thursday ill have more pics after i get the entire GFX kit installed











This has such a clean look, i cant wait to put it on

Update:

Got some thin sheet metal and created some new brackets to hold the GFX bezels in place. They were snapped off when i received the part so this was a quick and easy fix. A few rivets and she aint moving anywhere

Update:

Finally got a chance to put the GM GFX kit i got for a great deal from someone that i couldnt pass up. Only down side is im not able to put the GFX bezels onto the rear diffusor because the current Borla exhaust tips i have on will not fit inside the housing so im stuck with the being off until i get some square tips and swamp them out. I would have pull the current ones off but unfortunately they are welded on so im stuck with the look. It doesn't look THAT bad though. Im going to plasti dip the area where the bezels sit so you dont see the IOM and hides it a bit.

Here are so pics from the install. I need to wash her up and take some new shots tomorrow so stay tuned!

I must say the GFX give it a whole new look and love it

They wont fit with the current exhaust tips i have right now. The Borla tips are literally hitting the little indent on the inside of the bezels. When i tried putting the rear GFX on i was about 1 inch away from the bumper because it wouldnt allow the tips to go any further, so until i get the gfx exhaust tips they need to stay off.
