Hood looks really good.

select the background and give it a blur in photoshop.

I find the background to be extremely distracting from the car.

Ive got one rim here with me in Puerto Rico. The other 3 rims are in Miami.
My parents have a house over there & they will bring me a box every time they come visit. Im saving about a grand by doing it this way so I better be patient.

Anyway, right now the interior is out of the car. Im installing new tints, cleaning the whole carpet, new headliner, painting some plastics (not the rice way, only making some grays darker.) & installing GXP carbonfiber trims.

Oh, one more thing, I ordered a new front badge from GM, & the quality is crap. I had never noticed how ugly they are. So Im making a new one with fiberglass & I will get it painted. I was thingking black center & some sort of dark silver for the edge.

I was just gonna say, I think it looks better without the red arrow head. A black one would be much nicer, IMO.

Well, its kinda late for that. Since the car is painted & all. But you are right, it would look cool without a badge.

Car looks fantastic. Since you are making a new front Arrowhead anyway,You should try to duplicate the new design being used on the G8 Showcar. It also uses dark gray as it'* main color with a great, updated border. Just a thought. I wouldn't fill in the emblem. It'* a Pontiac! Be proud to show it!
