Default Any Cosmetics mods?

I havnt ever seen any. I am new to my bonneville only a few weeks and I was wondering if there are any mods for the body of my 92 Bonneville SSEi. If so where could I look?

The easiest, and most popular, is clearing the front corner lights. Other than that, not much in the physical mod category that I have heard of yet. Someone had added scoops to the hood, but removed them. There is, of course, upgrading the lights. For the Headlights, Sylvania SilverStars are probably the most popular. For the fog/driving lights, it'* either Angel Eyes, or CyberWhite Navigators.

Sorry, but I don't have a link. I bought my lights at WalMart..

For clearing the corners, check out TechInfo. Theres a pretty good walkthrough there.

Check out my picture below. I tinted the tails. New rims, pin striping, racing stripes, blackouts, window tint are all mods. New exhaust tips not only look good but sound good! I also painted a portion of my grill silver.

Rims!!! I'm a huge fan of rims, especially in the chrome variety. They can make a huge difference.

Yeah that was me. I put hood scoops on, but took them off when I realized how much I wish I never put them on in the first place. They didn't look horrible but I didn't like them anymore. I'd go with a true ram air hood if scoops are your thing.

Here'* a pic of the Angel Eye Fog lights I installed. These are definitely worth the $60. And they have 55W driving lights.


There'* a lot of little things you can do that will make the exterior pretty sharp, like everyone said. I painted my honeycomb part of the grill gold (pictures will come I promise )

Looks good! Any tips on painting the grill?? I think that'* the first thing I'm going to do this Spring, since I'm still not sure on whether I can tackle clearing my corners.
