Lightbulb Help me :) girl who dosent know how to do appearance mods

I'm a girl in upstate NY who knows not a thing about doing appearance mods
But I really want them done

I have a 2005 g6 gt
It's sunburnt orange
With black interior

What can I do to make it look nicer?
*keep in mind I have to do it*
I saw some stuff on here about
Eyelids ?
Adding more chrome
Led lisence plate
Painting mirrors
Soured led tail lights


So can someone break this down & tell me what I need & how I'm doing it
& what I should do to make it look best?

* other ideas are appreciated!!


Thanks so much!!

The cheapest and easiest thing you can do is debadge it. The easiest way to do this is with fishing line and adhesive remover.

You should probably take one thing at a time...If you look around the members rides section, and see things you like we will be more than happy walk you through it or point you in the right direction. I second the tint thats the first thing i did. and debadging is easy and makes your car look cleaner.

First thing you should do is swap out the motor kidding. I agree with the debadging if you like that look. If you want ideas to do yourself then I wouldnt start with tint b/c it can get difficult. I would start with some accents like the trim wether you want more chrome or the chrome blacked out, like around the window some peeps have blacked out the lower trim, but i added crome to the top half. Its really simple to apply as long as the surface is clean. That could be a start but def look around & ask questions

WOOO upstate!! first off where abouts im in syracuse. second debadging is easy take your hair dryer outside and heat up whatever you wanna take off and use fishing line to "scrape" them off (won't hurt your car one bit). tint would be sick just go to a shop or have it done professionally so its not poo poo.

Agreed x100000
Get it done by a pro, most will offer a warranty too so if it does start to bubble or peel you can have it fixed free

I'm gonna jump in here and warn against debadging, only because your car is around 6 years old and there has been plenty of time for the paint to fade due to sun and other atmospheric exposure. If you debadged now there is a pretty good chance that you will have the shadow image of the badges that will show. Of course, you might like that look, soooo.... there are several threads on the board with debadging instructions. The badges are held on with double-sided adhesive tape which is easier to remove if you get the adhesive warm by heating up the badges with a hair dryer.

@x0littleone0xx-i would color match the eyelids then chrome upper door molding then piano black b-pillars then color match overlays ... all of those are rather inexpensive quick and stick on so super easy
