Thumbs up Trailblazer RS All-Out Photoshoot

I finally got around to getting some "good" pictures of the trailblazer tonight. It was a lot of fun as I haven't had a chance to go out and do this with my Bonneville in months so I had a good time taking about 75 pictures and ending up with the following as my favorites.

I am in no way a professional photographer and I simply use a point and shoot digital camera with a good eye for lighting, angles, and backgrounds I would like to think.

Just to recap what the Trailblazer "RS" has done to it'* Exterior:

BTW, everything was done by me, myself, and I over the past month of us owning it. Lots of ideas, planning and sweat in the Florida Heat have been put into this to get the look I wanted (other than lowering it..that is next)

She just hit 12k miles this week!

-HID 6000k Headlights
-Fog Light housing I painted black and installed LED'*
-Front and Rear Bowties I Tinted to give a black to black chrome appearance which changes depending on the angle and on the lighting
-Side moldings I changed from ugly black plastic to color matched to the rest of the paint
-Door handles changed from black plastic to Chrome
-Rocker panels (bottom part under the doors) I changed from black plastic to color matched
-Rear plastic on bumper I color matched
-Tail lights I tinted very dark, almost black on all parts except the parts that light up, those areas I just smoked
-Front Windows Tinted to match rears
-RS badging was added to resemble the badging on the SS models on sides and rear
-Factory 20" SS wheels with 275/45/20 Hankook Ventus ST RH06 tires were added
-Black Bowtie overlays on wheels with RS in the center
-Cross Bar delete (leaving rest of roof rack to make it more unique and not entirely like an SS)
-Stainless Mesh Grille that I spent $2 on and half an hour making
-Gibson Catback Exhaust system
-True Flow Air intake

Onto the pictures: Enjoy!

Thanks guys.

I am glad to be "done" with it for a while at least. Now I can sit back, have a beer and just stare at her in my driveway as the sun sets lol

Looks great Nick. Love the location. Can't wait to see it lowered. You'll have to bring it up when you come home next and have a shoot with the Pearl
