With the wheels you have i also recommend painting your rotors, so they done look rusty

here is what i did with my 03 last year




Where did you get the pontiac logos?

LOL, ok so it was from me. But it would probably be cheaper to get those from NHolds.

Go over to Advance Auto Parts and pick up a caliper paint kit for less than $20. It has cleaner, and it is a brush on high heat kit. It has everything you need. I would take the wheels off b/c you won't get the tops and sides of the calipers very well if you don't.
