Replaced by beat up Procomp coilovers (70,000 miles) with new shiny Toytec Bilstein 5100's. Procomps still rode fine just the bushing were shot and made a squeak over bumps!

Thank you sir, i thought so too

what do you think about going black on the silver pieces on the bumpers as well?
I've been looking at pics for like the last 24hrs ,, i think i'm leaning towards changing the gill only to black, and keeping the rest silver.

I just feel something is wrong with the silver grill look with all the black going around it, kinda like in your face haha
Would appreciate your opinion.

I was in the same position as you..I really like the quirky look of the silver bits, but wanted something different so I plastidipped the grill and all the bumper wings, and part of the front bumper fascia/fake skid looking silver plastic. Iím thinking of doing the handles, but will keep the mirrors silver for now.

Hereís some pics for you:




*edit- I forgot..I also painted my front skid plate silver

That looks great, thanks for the pics, it gives me an idea of finish product that you have black wheels too.

I like the silver skid plate idea too, wish I saw this earlier, I just sprayed it black while undercoating the whole car (what a mission .. still in progress).
And yeah, I was thinking the same like you, just keep the handles and the mirrors silver, it's balancing the darkness some .. thanks again for your opinion.

btw, you guys still have that much snow!!! that's crazy, we just finally start warming up here and more like spring feel

*I like the headlights too, what are those, any links to the product or where you got it from? I'm thinking about upgrading lights next
