Smile New look

So I decided to change the color scheme on one of my monte's. After 6 weeks she is finally home. What do you guys think? I put an Impala front bumper on it, and painted the stock wheels that came on the 3.9 with the duplicolor black wheel and coat.

I like it, now you may want to do some blackout headlight covers to stay with the theme of the look in the front. Good Job!! It's always fun to give these cars special custom looks.

When ever I do it Mrs. Bickerson has to chime in an say what are doing that for?

That looks nice

If you decide on the stripes on the side of the car, I recommend doing them along the ground fx on the bottom of the car with about a 1 inch wide stripe, it's just that I am not personally a fan of the pin stripes people put along the body lines higher up on the car, but that is just my opinion lol, do whatever you like

Pinstripes do a lot for the look of the vehicle, I have a 2013 Chevy Equinox and the pinstripe sets it off, and it makes it much easier to find in the parking lot also.
