Dave- that's on the list of projects for summer. And ive been continplating getting new tips I think I'm going to get a rolled edge and fatter exhaust tip. And have them tuck it back more. I think it's too skinny and sticks out too much as well.
Alex- thanks as soon as I saw the red lights and that the car came with I was so pumped because then it would be red outside and red inside.

Make sure you keep a good coat of sealant or wax on that baby. That paint is looking glossy. :) You are also missing a "C' on the Pontiac lettering.

Keep the G6 and GT on. Debadge the Pontiac lettering. Get some Meguiars NXT 2.0 sealant. They call it a wax, but it's technically a hybrid sealant. It lasts a lot longer than wax, but doesn't give as much depth. Always keeps a good coat on it.

This is how it looked debadged... i may go back to this...

I did the badges before the tint..... refer to those for before shots....
Tails came out really shiny and didnt need any sanding or buffing AFTER nightshades. After i layed the first coat of clear they kinda dulled so i stopped with only onne coat of clear.

Before the clear 30 minutes after the nightshades..


It was hard to get a shot where you could see the real shine they had but here they are on the car and with the lights on.....

Nice darkness with the tint. You need to wet sand then use rubbing compound on that though. It looks flat. Maybe a few clear coats too.

Paint was still drying so it gave a wet look.
