Don't mind the clear corners, I don't have them on anymore....

I think it would look good lowered and have that grey painted on the bottom...

Thoughts, suggestions, or vodka?

After looking at it some more, maybe not that LOW but lowered a bit.

I like the other ideas, but I'm not sure on the grey rockers yet. Buick usually does that sort of thing. (Riviera, Regal, etc.) It adds something to the car, but I'm not sure if the Bonneville looks good with it or not. It doesn't look BAD by any means though!!

In the PS the gray rockers look good. Tough to know how it would work out on the car. I don't know if there really is a clear break or separation on the front and rear bumper cover to do it, without just taping off a line and paiting below. If they don't look like separate pieces when painted, it may look funny. I'd have to check out some pics.

I like the idea though. However, cars that DO have grey rockers (95-99 Auroras, Grand Prixs, 300M Special) look really good when they are painted the body color too!

I can speak for Jim, that'* HOT!

Cody, with silver especially, it would probably look sweet on your car.

I think I did the PS originally...gets a thumbs up from me for sure. Why did you lose the clear corners?

Didn't like the looks, prefered the ambers over the clears. I believe a member has mine now, at least by now...

And yes, Pat, I recall you telling me that you liked the grey/black rockers.

I was thinking if I actually did this, maybe I could go with a coupla shades darker of silver for the bottom?

I alway wondered what the front would look like if it was painted Grand Prix style, grey on the front airdam and the vertical splitters....
