modding is making it your own...so it doesnt make two shits what anyone has to say about it...because you made it yours.

Personally I don't like it, overdone and doesn't stand out enough. To each his own though, 2SSARME and tribone's car's both look sick though!

gotta get rid of the chrome. Wheels need to be black. The front looks good, but it's not "blacked out" until the chrome is gone. IMO

Too blacked out isnt so cool imo...because then it looks like every other car till the headlights and taillights come on. There was a blacked out 5th gen 2ss drving next to me last night and I didnt even noticed till I saw the tail lights. THings like this have me re thinking what color I will other. Beautiful color but from a distance I just cant tell.

I love black cars, but I dont like them completely blacked out, why the reason I have silver stripes, left the chrome parts chrome, but i did add a black phantom grille, blacked out all the bow-ties, and tinted windows, and i added chrome trim around the turn signals, i LOVE it, its perfect look for me.

Tribone you are just a show off! LOL jk man, your car is sick

I'm with you MSG, I like the blacked out look but with a little contrast also silver stripes. Has anyone bought the taillight blackouts from SFX Performance? Looking to get a set of these after tinting windows.

There is an old saying, "if it doesn't go fast, chrome it".

I like the windows blacked out but not the rims, I think the polished rims look way better.

If you want the "blacked-out" look then the rims must be black!

I agree...I like a little contrast. I won't black out my wheels, but I do want some black, and maybe orange in them...Plus, all the tint is fairly light...

black is a high maintenance color for it to look good. i have owned dark colored cars before and man they were a pain to have looking clean. i would wash and wax the car, go inside for a break for an hour and there would be a thin coating of dust on it when i came back.....arrrrrrrgggggghhh.

having a solid black car takes away the definition of the lines of the car. my .02

Enjoy your ride
