Here'* a stupid question - Is your TB a 6 lug pattern now? I know the V series Caddies have 6 lug wheels and hubs but the reg versions only have 5 lugs
Ya I am gonna go ahead and paint all those parts now that I look at the pictures more.. Most likely will make it my afternoon project next saturday or sunday.
Tint was done 2 days after those pictures were taken, so that is done.
Yes my wheels are 6 lug. The SS wheels bolt right on to any vehicle on this platform whether it be Trailblazer, Envoy, etc..
Thought about doing black pillars but I looked at it and to avoid a paint line on rear pillar I am going to have to blend the clear into the rest of the silver, which I really don't want to mess around with perfect paint on a 11k mile vehicle right now..the plastic stuff I am doing can always be replaced which is why doing those things doesn't bother me, but I am going to stay away from doing the pillars. There is a guy who did it on the other forum I am a part of (Trailvoy.com) and I didn't care for the look all that much to be honest...maybe if I did the vehicle in two-tone I would like it, but other than that it just looked strange for some reason.
I also have emblems that just arrived today that I am putting on where the SS emblems would normally be, that are the exact same font, size, material, color etc.. as the factory SS emblems, but they are RS emblems. Essentially this is going to be my creation of the RS version of a trailblazer as no way would I badge it an SS, and it no longer is a stock LS..so it is now in my eyes an RS....a 6 cyl higher performance if you will...since I will have intake, tune, exhaust, SS wheels (I am also getting RS decals made for the center caps instead of the bowtie) then later on suspension and of course all the other appearance stuff I am doing and have done. Figured the emblems will really finish it off and set the truck apart from others and be good conversation starters
My goal is a unique Trailblazer, done my style, that looks like it came that way from the factory
Will post pics of the progress and end results, you can be sure of that
