if done right it looks good..but i think its a played out look now adays...but then again..

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.

I like the blacked out look. Personally, I'm not into "flashy" stuff.
