Looks good. I just plastidipped my grille, fogs and rear valence this weekend and it is amazing to see how much better the grille looks black instead of grey. I really like the contrast the black makes on your Monza.

Good. I noticed they could use a refresh compared to that grille. Are you going gloss or matte? I don't think I have seen gloss fogs...could be nice. Post pics when complete!

MOD:

Valence and splitter painted a satin black.
Painter recommended not painting the fogs because they would easily peel without a good amount of prep work.

Default You need to store your tires vertically.

Nice garage, btw.

Thanks!
Is there a reason why you suggest vertical storage over horizontal?

If you have your tires mounted, then you are storing them in the recommended manner according to info I've read. Unmounted, store them vertically.

Wow.. missed a few of your updates.

Garage looks like a proper place to park your chariot.

I'd love to hear your take on the 1675's after you have a few miles on them. 20x9 "Rotor" style wheels will look awesome but beg for a BBK... just sayin'

Can't wait to see the transformation.

Thanks, I'd love to pick up a BBK but for now I have an alternative in the works.

Hopefully I'll have another update next weekend.
