It'* dark out now, but I will take a pic or two tomorrow. I use the real digi camera too so it won't look as grainy, plus I don't have any pics of my silverstar parking lamps.... ooo maybe a mini-photo shoot is in order...

Alright, here ya go, should I go chrome?





I was going to go up to the park, but I realized the bonnie didnt look quite as good as I had originally thought (water marks all over) so I just took some quick shots in my driveway.

Yea I think chrome would look good.

You've got some really nice straight on shots there.... you could always PS them to see what it would look it.

I got the same Bumper Chrome paint at Pep Boys. You might try WalMart or a parts store, tho. DupliKolor is a fairly common brand

It'* already chrome.
I actually need the paint for the trim around the license plate. The trim is grey from the factory but the paint is peeling off so it needs repainting. Figured that chrome paint woudl look good since there is chrome trim around the perimeter of the tail lights anyway.
