Done with paint!

I have not been able to drive my baby for the past week! But once I had everything put back together, it was well worth it.

I think the grilles look 10x better than the stock color, especially on that red.
I painted mine and it made me think twice about getting SAP's.
If you can you lose the license plate holder, it'll really clean the front end up.

Btw, you'll have to learn how to put the pics in your post.

Agreed! Thanks for all the feedback! I was going to remove it but didn't have anything to plug the holes in the bumper (and I was really tired of not driving it)
And sorry for not knowing how to do that, I'm an idiot when it comes to computers haha!

You might be able to get some of those plugs from Lowes or Autozone.
They usually come in white or black and you can paint them with touch-up paint temporarily 'til you find a better option.
It's easy to insert pics.
When you upload the pics, copy one of the picture links with your right mouse button and then click on the little picture of the mountains and sun where you're typing your message.
Right mouse click again and paste the picture link in the box and click ok and it's done.
You can always preview the post and see if you did it right before actually posting it.

License plate frame needs to go, but the front needs more black now (what have you started?). You could get SAP extension, do fake SAP, or get a splitter. Is any of that on your future?

License plate is coming off next week, and more pictures of that will be coming (something up my sleeve ) and then I have more stuff coming in the next couple of months to tie everything together!

Don't do it. It really cheapens the look of the front end and also makes the car look like something the lower-end, Autozone, fake chrome/billet, import crowd would do.

I personally love the fake sap. However, you MUST have a splitter imo to pull the fake sap off. Then again, I think every GTO looks naked without a splitter.

I hate when they put a license plate holder on the front of a beautiful car.
