My Project...a work in progress

I bought Nickki (named after Nicki Manaj) may 20 2010 in Dallas, TX Cyber Grey LS. I thought it would be a good idea to black her out as much as possible but, still maintain its unique color.
  1. Bought some new rims ASAP. Flat black BBS 19inch rims
  2. Black-Out magnet in the back
  3. Black Finder Stripes
  4. Black Bowtie
I have a lot of much needed work. Such as tinted windows. Smoke tint on my lights, but i will keep you posted on new add-ons. Let me know what you think or any ideas. Thanks

Just get a heatgun or a hair dryer and heat up the decal and surface and slowly peel it off. then use goo gone to clean the area throughly.

I like the name but the spelling com'n son....copying me haha jk any way don't worry about that dealer sticker ill help you remove it. I think you need a spoiler and ground effects kit, maybe leave them black? not sure might wanna photo shop it 1st to see it. also get the decals we talked about. we should do a cold air intake or exhaust too so you can get that sound like mine.

I just got these about 2 months ago. Once i get my red door panels and red dash board it will make my interior sick. I just bought a heritage grill yesterday which should make my car better in the front.

Question: Do i need to buy all new HID lights just to have Halos? Or can i just buy the halos and install them to my current lights? Please let me know because xmas is coming up soon and i need to tell Santa what i want.

Please send your ideas and comments. I really want to have a bad-ass LS. Hopefully make COTW. Thanks
