But I have decided to put the lower grill back on and paint it black.
The lower grille should look good painted black.

I'd like to see a black grille, but with a chrome ring around it like the 69 RS grille had. I think your car would look much meaner without any orange on the exterior. Black and chrome only. I wonder if one of those chrome plating companies can make your grille look like this, maybe even a light shade over the headlights too.

PQ-
I got my car back today. The TPMS sensors I bought from the dealer (GM sensors) are in my wheels now and working great. They stayed paired with the system the whole way home from the shop (about 40 miles). With the other sensors, the signal was lost after about 15 minutes.

Too late for that. But I maybe my next set of wheels will have a little orange in them.

Cool. I'll have to get some. Once I find my vibration, I may have different wheels to put them on. So I'm not worrying about it at the moment.

A little birdie told me that if you do LOTS of burnouts the rear tires will become smoother. Then just rotate rear to front, do it again and voila - no vibration... lol

Sorry you still have that damn vibration.

I'm hoping it will be one of those things that go away over time.

Or, I can get the tires shaved. I was also told to try that.

Before you pull the trigger I'd see what Tim at TandT can do for you. I know MTI is a lot closer but Tim might beat it. I'm certain the work won't be any less.

Not sure on the tranny. Or the tuner it's self. I'll be able to have several different tunes though.

Agree with you on this , Tim at http://www.tandtperformance.com/ should be considered in your vendor list........

Its not always about price, but customer service after the sale; especially when buying BIG ticket items

Ok thanks I will defiantly shoot him an e-mail or call him.

Yeah MTI is having a special price for the stage 2 Maggie, $7500 installed. But I will get in touch with Tim.
