Took some Pics of my car afterwork. I am loving my clear corners and polished headlights (thank you Tom and Aaron). I also painted my calipers Silver, also installed GXP Rear brakes.

Very nice! That car looks like a lot of fun - kind of the middle ground between GTP and Riviera.

Didn't they make an OEM plastic cover for the front plate area?

I like the silver calipers. A lot classier looking than the bright red ones you always see, IMHO

Looks like a newly built spaceship! You should go for HID's on the fog lights in the bumper. Either that, or find some way to make those light holes into ram-air intakes. Probably impossible, but it would be cool!


I always loved the looks of these final-gen Bonnies with the foglights in the middle of the bumper. It's sharp and creased, yet not harsh, styling is exciting to look at when it's clean! The dashboard is like a fighter jet cockpit too.

I'm sure the Pontiac designers had that in mind, but I'm not sure if the cash is in oldsman's wallet.

Very nice!

Uno did it on hes 1994 SSEi and they look great...had angel eye rings in them tho.

I had to go back and see what the corners normally look like. That looks MUCH better! Thumbs up! That's a fine ride. I see you have also strategized your tires on the front vs back.

Trying to save up for projector foglights.

Those wheels look great! Really makes the silver calipers pop.
