Very nicely done! I love my chrome Foose Legends with my ABM, and your black ones go so well with your car. And our heritage grilles look great without the bowtie, but I may add an ss to the front at some point.

Thanks..............I ended up painting the GFX body color and it was too much yellow in the back and I wanted to try to do something similar to the blacked out front end so my painter suggested painting the tips and the ridged area between them and blacking out the tail light bezels.

Absolutely... you should come hang out with the H-Town crew... We will have a very nice showing of Gen 5's. Last day for early registration is today, but that's only a $5 savings.

Hope to see you there..

Very nice looking car. Glad to see a local doing it right. Question though, did you have the black wheels before you painted the GFX yellow? Was it too much black or you got the wheels after?

Thanks.............Yea, I bought the wheels and put them on before I painted the GFX. It wasn't that it was too much black it was that the wheels are gloss black and the GFX were Argent Gray and that's what didn't match. It was either paint the wheels Argent Gray Matte or paint the GFX Yellow so I decided to paint the GFX and boy am I glad I did......

I'm not a fan of the gray GFX. You made the right choice.
