Newbie Here

I just got a Black Sedan 2008 g6 gt with street edition package. No mods yet, but will start in the summer. I also have a few questions.

1) One of the chrome rings around the grill is bent is there a good write up somewhere that explains how to remove and install for that and the grille? (I have to repaint the grilles cause one is chipping and thinking about doing that black)

Possible Mods
1) Tinted Windows
2) Overlays
3) Possible paint stock wheels

Any other suggestions?

oh and painting the calipers is pretty popular, it would help accent your rims too

Thank you everyone!! I actually will consider painting the calipers.And for the installation of the new chrome ring and painting the actual mesh grille i'm slightly confused as the directions say use zip ties but i'm not change the oem grille just painting it putting it back in and putting a new chrome grille ring on one side. Any clarification is greatly appreciated
