Oh, I guess it was in a different part of the forum...

Here are the gloss black kidneys on mine, with black lower grilles and gloss black window trim


Your car looks great and your mod list is pretty sweet. I have some painted side reflectors if you want to get rid of those clear ones.
thanks man...i already bought the painted reflectors. and i was saying earlier that my car looks so plain lol and i have all these mods done to it...guess i was more into the performance which i am. you should see the bel stir i just put into the rear view mirror...looks sweet.

anyway so do you like the gloss black on yours? if you had to do it over again would you get matte over the gloss?

Ya, love the gloss black. Matte would look great as well, but I just wanted to tie in the kidneys with the window trim that I had done earlier.

Here's mine plastidipped matte black. Probably the first mod I did to the car only a few days after picking it up. I'm thinking about switching to gloss grilles though but haven't decided yet...

I think that'd just give you gloss black. I bought semi-gloss paint. Click the link in my sig to see some pics.
