Default Unique Design Thoughts

I want to make my car very unique by doing a little bit of body modification. (No I'm not ricing it out.) I was thinkin about how it would look to change all of the trim pieces on the doors and fenders to black, also changing the front and rear fenders to black.I would possibly want to put a black stripe down the middle of the car or something. If I have a cowl hood I would do two stripes, but I don't. If i were to do this I would not be painting the pieces as that would be more work than its worth, but I am simply going to find a similar black 93' to get the trim off of. What I was wondering was if anyone could photoshop a couple pics of my car so I would see what this would look like, plus get your guy'* thoughts on it.

You can get the pics off my Blue Light special link on my sig or I can post them up and you can get them. Thanks for the help.

I think it would look alright if you changed the bumpers/mouldings/sideskirts to black. You can't really replace the rear fender as it'* connected to your roof. Not too sure how good it would look with the front fenders black though.
All those peices will probably end up costing more than a paint job unless you find a cheeeeeaaaaap 92-95 w/o a motor&tranny.

I saw a 92 SE with just the base cladding, doesn't even go down the whole door, light colored car (tan maybe) with black cladding strip.

Kinda really damn ugly.

The rear bumper cover is a snap to remove. I havent had the pleasure of removing the front one yet but wouldn't think it would be too much more difficult. Just hafta remove a few more things.

Ryan, I have all of the trim you need and the rear bumper cover is in good shape but would be a bit pricey to ship. The front bumper cover has some blems and a crack so you wouldnt want it. I also have the lower rocker trim. Obviously, the pieces could use a good sanding and a repaint prior to installation from 11 years of road debris.

Not easily, if I understand correctly. But if you got a wrecker yard nearby, you could probably get all the parts you need to do it
