No more chrome... Hello satin finish

I didn't love the black kidneys and other touches on the Monte Carlo, so I went with something unique. It also matches the interior touches of the car, like door handles etc...

It's subtle but that's how I like it... Oh and it's reversible.

I like how the M badge came out.

I never liked the factory door handles (the chrome).. I think wrapping them doesn't make it look any better. Only way to improve is to have them paint matched to the car.

I also am not a fan of the silver side gills and front grills on most paint colors. For some reason I only liked it on frozen grey. I would just go with gloss black front grills and side gills.

So.. paint everything.

A+ for creativity though!

I kept seeing the same stuff a la IND, so I decided to change it up. No disrespect to IND in fact I did their reflector deletes. Just wanted something different

Hmmmm...different and I like it! Great job.

Was thinking that I am not sure I will like gloss black on my AW M6 when it arrives. not sure this is the way I would go with Aw but goes to show it pays to experiment a little. Again, very nice
