I you paint it black, won't it just be a blank, black ellipse? I think that would look odd.

Here are updated pics with the car mostly clean. I washed it yesterday and the weather went a little squirrely overnight. It's about 95% done now. smile

Also a shameless plug to try and get ROTM. razz I'd love to be a part of your calendar. I'm guessing a few of you probably aren't thrilled with how much I blacked out this car but I think it looks really good. Please vote for me!! sad

looks very nice! i dont recall there being any rule about being ROTM before a calender nominee.
I'll start taking pictures this july for the 2011 calendar. all you have to do is send me a few HQ pics (provided they follow the rules) and then it goes to a vote

Ahhhh... Yeah, I was under a false impression that the ROTM people automatically got in. Either way, I hope I can get in the calendar. Figure I'll have better pics yet, in the upcoming months. smile

S'allright... I had the same idea that the 2 were related when I was encouraged to submit my car for next year's calendar.

Here's a pic Tyler. Sorry that took so long frown

It doesn't look that bad the more I get used to it. The chrome R back there really needs to be black I think though..

New rides added 9/14/13 - Page 5 Tailtint
looks good! i think the R needs to be black or gone also. i know mines a park ave but some of the newer ones have a buick symbol right there and i like how mine looks without it, just a thought. by the way i voted for you for ROTM, if there was a riv of the year youd have my vote twisted

I think the Ultimate solution the R on the trunk is to have it shaved and filled in.
I think that looks very good on the Riv's that I've seen it done on. It cleans up the whole back of the car and even though it is such a small thing, I think removing it has a dramatic effect.
There are a few on here for reference.
I would find out how much that costs and budget for it and in the mean time you can paint it black and see how that looks also.
Heck you can always remove the paint if you don't like it.
i like this idea, its like what i said about the R on the grill, its something so small but youd be surprised with the difference it makes.

I'm thinking about possibly delaminating the symbol in the back (if that's possible) and painting it flat black. We will see. The way it looks now is pretty good so who knows.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. Love this car. It even got a lot of fanfare over on ClubGP and I don't think most of those guys are Buick fans. lol

I would keep the R, but black in the inside areas, leaving a chrome R

I like this idea. You could even do this and then have the R painted gunmetal or something, so it still stands out but is in line with your black-out theme.

Do you want a nappy head of hair too.
Everything is doable, just need to spend a couple of bucks and quit whining.

Hey Rick, the platic "R" on the trunk key hole cover comes off if you push out on it from the inside. I wouldn't push on it too hard though incase your factory glue is still holding on strong cause it could crack . Mine was loose a while back and it nearly fell off, so I secured it with much stronger glue than what the factory used. Once you get it off, what you do with it is up to you.

This looks great. I have been thinking about a 99 in black and then add the Charcoal interior from a 95. I like all of the tinting as well. I am thinking that I would want chrome on the outside of the grill and tailight with a silver pinstripe 1" below the top of the side to accentuate the elegance of the body. I used a $8 roll of pinstripe on mine 5 years ago. It has held up and helps define the shape.

Inside I would add a red-ish woodgrain and a 2 DIN stereo/Nav unit to the black interior.
