A few months ago, I decided to continue my blackout theme with the grill. To see whether or not I would like it, I used plastidip since its easily removable. I also did some stripes just for fun. What do you guys think of the temporary look?

Well,I like the black grill but I would also like to see how yer whip looks with the fender trim in black.Grill is dynomite.
So you only have the stripes along one side? Are you going to do the other side at some time in the future?

Nice grille! Will you keep it matte/flat black or gloss it up eventually? I think a glossy black would compliment the glossiness on the rest of the car. Btw how do you like the Plasti Dip?

Agreed with robo too... black fender trim would look sick!

Looks good. Only thing I'd add is tint those amber turn signals!
black chrome trim, like robo said, would be cool too.

The turn signals are definitely on the agenda. I was going to do them when I had the rears done, but I didn't realize you had to remove the front bumper to get to them.

You dont have to remove the bumper to get them out.All you need to do is pull the splash guard aside and reach in and disconect wiring and 4 speed nut bullshit thingys and the light pops right out.

Dang dude. That thing is really achieving rod status, looks very menacing indeed!

And still hoping sometime you'll find the time to grace us with some exhaust clips! razz

Spent the day buffing, polishing, and waxing the Riv. Also, haven't gave you guys an update in awhile, but I had the car tuned by Paul at PRJ Performance this summer. He got rid of all my KR and and was able to add quite a few degrees of timing as well. In case you don't remember, Paul is the one who built and tuned EWolfe's Riv that's on our website banner. Anyhow, here's a few shots my friend took today.

Holy cow...all things combined - paint, wheels, tint, spoiler - it makes it WORK. They're all somewhat subtle changes yet it completely changes the entire car. Very very nice work. I'm hoping I can buff the rest of my car before I go on my honeymoon this weekend!
