Default check out the new paint and rims

I bought this 1995 bonneville w/126000 miles for $1600 on Craigslist about a month ago. It was a completely stock 3800 series II w only a cherry bomb on the exhaust. I bought some 16" chrome rims w/new tires for $600 and put them on.

Then about a week later I was rear ended by a 16 y/o kid and the insurance company paid way more than enough to fix and paint it.
It was painted black w/metallic pewter to add extra metallic look to the paint. Got it done at Earl Schieb in Garden City. Eal Schieb did a great job and great price.

Also Have an Alpine 15" type R 2000 watt sub in a obcon godzilla box, an Alpine 1800 watt MRD-m1000 amp, and lots of dynamat for the trunk. This insn't installed yet because I need a cap and some work done first.

That paint job looks awesome! Did they paint under the badges, behind the headlights, under the door handles, etc? It looks pretty solid. It'* kind of weird, but I think your rims would stick out if it were not for the exhaust tip. It looks really good!

Car looks great. I agree with the others on getting the tint and tails.

I am also curious on how much the paint was, as I could use paint.
