The Annihilator......

Thought I'd just create one thread about my cars customization. I have been thinking about this "look" since Indy and have been very quiet because I did not want to let the cat out of the bag too early. I wanted my car to look like it could have come from the factory with the mods I did.

I'll just post the pics and then let you ask me anything. The customization includes:

Removal of mailslot
2008 Impala SS door badges
2008 Impala SS tailpan badge
Removal of chrome tail light trim
Removal of Chevy bowtie
Weld up holes from Chevy bowtie
Gloss black black-out tailpan
Painted ground effects with darked-out diffuser

Feel free to copy anything or ask me anything. Enjoy!

Not everyone dislikes their dealer. Some people are friends with their dealer.

The dealer sticker is there by design. Reason is that I wanted the car to look as authentic as possible, the dealer's family are very close freinds and the name Boulevard sounds cool!

I don't like the front piece. It has that "added on" look and besides, the original lower fascia is gorgeous!

Rear is 2008 Impala SS. Be forwarned - this badge will not cover the 2 holes behind the Bowtie emblem. You will need to plug weld the holes and use body filler to get the same effect.

You're taillights look GREAT. I can't believe how easy it is to fix their styling. I never liked that design from the time I first saw it 9 months before the showcar was presented!

Very nice Hylton! Subtle but definitely unique!

But dammit man, why did you have to take possesion of your car? I've been stopping by to look at it on my way home several times a week, now there'll be nothing for me :( (jk)

The car looks great. I'm surprised you took out the mail slot. I like better without but most seem to like it with it.
