Just playing around with Gimp and came up with an idea of what has been floating around in my head since I've introduced myself to the GT. Please let me know if you love it or hate it, and anybody that is good with photoshop/gimp/paint/etc. please submit any changes you would like to see or even something completely different.

No just looks out of place. You should dip the chrome pieces.

^ agreed as its not permanent. But with the openness of the grille, wouldn't that allow unwanted misc debris into the front of the car? Maybe if you meshed it out...

Going along with removing both the top "bars" from upper/lower grille, I am in fact contemplating some black mesh for debris prevention.

What about something like this:

I REALY like that last look.

Could you please add that color to my wheels. I could have mine powder coated black at a minimal cost. I'm also going to tint the windows and do 35% all around.

Thanks, and sorry for jacking your thread!

Here you go, no worries on the thread jack...



Glad you guys like the look I'm going for, but unfortunately I have tons of ideas I never get around to. Things cost money, making it look cool on my computer was free!

Thank you for your help. I don't think I'm fond of the way it looks with the black wheels. I may just get a light tint all around and call it a day. I did really like the blacked out front grill however. I'll save that idea for another day.
