I happened to have a couple on my computer, loading those now to my photobucket. I can't take any myself as I only have the lip and don't plan on adding the skirts.

Did you have to remove the grille and tape this down? Where did you get the vinyl?

Thanks!

The grill was left in place, and the vinyl was applied on top and trimmed to fit with a hobby knife. I can't remember where this specific vinyl came from, as I have a lot laying around in various colours and materials, from a few sources. There's a local vinyl shop that I've bought some from, and most of the rest came from a couple of friends that both produce decals. Any local vinyl warehouse should have lots to choose from.

Looks good, wonder how you're wheels would look black?

I had a quick photoshop some pages back from a friend, showing the wheels in black. Overall not too bad, but perhaps a few shades too dark. I ran black wheels on my Grand Prix last year and at times I liked them, others I didn't.



I probably only have another month before these wheels have to come off for winter, so I'll have some time to think about how/if I want to change them up for 2013.

Speaking of wheels, if any local-to-me members have spare 16s laying around, I still have my original 215/55R16 tires which I wouldn't mind filling with something interesting.
