Default Updates on the Blazer - "Tinted"

Grille finally came in today, so i had to take some pics of all my upgrades...

Pictures of when i first got it... http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=91171

First up, the new chrome grille, and black chevy bowtie. (don't mind the missing mirror, someone knocked it off in the college parking lot )

And the red guauge lights: Suprisingly easy to do in the blazers just replace the bulbs with red LED'*, i'm going to be replacing most of the lights on the dash to red too. And also the red neon i put in the vent. The gauges don't show up very good in the pics, but they look sweet.

I also did whats called the "quad headlight mod" made it so that when the brights are on the dims stay on too. so much better light output!

Thats all for now
Once i get a new mirror, and it actually gets nice out i'll clean it up all nice and takes some good pics. I'm also gonna try tinting the front windows, and i'm savin up for some headlight covers.

i'm not gonna worry about clear turns, because i'm getting black headlight covers... If i wasn't getting headlight covers, i'd get the clear signals.

i couldn't find any HL covers pics to compare. are you dead set on them? you have the very well designed and improved 98+ front end, show it off, dont hide it behind covers.

yea, i'm pretty set on the headlight covers.
I've got the black tails, i'm gonna hopefully get black rims. I think the headlight covers will really look good.
The clears do look good, i just like the headlight covers better...

yea, i didn't want the white breaking up all the black. I'm hopefully going to be getting the LED light bar that goes in between the bumper and tailgate. So that will have my backup lights.
I think it looks better this way.
