Haha sick! Eric, heads up! You should get some black rims and get the window chrome blacked out too. The front looks excellent, just make sure to leave the "R" itself chrome.



Oh, your front-driver's side tire is flat.

Wow that looks really mean! Did you tint the tails as well?

I really like those headlights too!


Now just tint the windows , and get a set of chrome wheels or all black with a chrome lip.

The tire looks flat because it's sitting in a small divet in the driveway.

Tinted tail lights (very light coat of VHT), tinted headlights, blacked out chrome grille/fenderwells/tail light.

Next will be tinting the windows and getting better rims for it. I think I'll leave the window chrome alone. That would be a huge PITA to paint and I don't think it looks that bad.

I like the Blacked out chrome around the tail lights and grill. I would be afraid that blacking out the window trim will result in less definition of the lines. What about a thin silver line down the side about an inch below the crease. Or get chrome mesh to highlight the oval like this Jag.

I have been thinking of a Black 98 that looks like yours with a Black interior from a 95 that has been modified with a woodgrain dash like the BMW below. I have seen a lot of aftermarket wheels but still like the chrome 7 spokes or the chrome version of the 12 spoke.

looks like it had droped in a black paint bucket! hehe...well it looks agressiver now!
should get some 18-20'' black rims.

was wondering...how did you paint the chroom?
did you do anything whit it so that the paint will stay on it?
used any primers? anything?

if not then i guess it will flake off soon.

ohh and maybe remove the riviera badge on sides...looks claner then wink

That looks good! How did you paint the grille? Looking into doing that myself but with my white Riv. Would appreciate you sharing your methods that you used to achieve those results!

Looks xclnt! Nice Job! I agree with Turtleman, black out the window trim, looks out of place now with the other chrome gone. Still though, really nice looking!

I think the chrome window trim leaves a nice contrast. Chrome wheels would look good on that car also.
Just my opinion though.
Very nice job on the whole car, I like it !!!
