THANK YOU!...told ya it looks way better. I am wondering if spraying them with a coat or 2 of clearcoat would do anything, exhaust dust then should just spray off in a carwash and they should not loose color.

there is about 4 coats of clear on those, but if you want to bring the shine back more remove all you wax and what not and repsray and youll be good and probably even shinier, the sun does wonder on the tinted tails i have a set on my car with 5 coats of clear and they still fade, thats just the way the sun plays,

He means putting clear on my sanded/polished exhaust tips Something I did think of. I'll see how these hold up the way they are.

Scott, I'll be changing mine to your type sometime soon hopefully

the "Pearl White" like on some Cadilacs or real Pearl White
(not to hijack but eventually dads '67 Cougar will be painted Pearl White, but its gona have alot of purple in it so it looks like a pearl)

either way both look sweeet

I'd either do the Cadillac white/Bonne GXP white..OR Jim W'* Diamond White. I want a stock GM color but not another 92-99 Bonneville color. I really don't know though. It won't be at least a year until I can think about getting it done. And who knows what will happen in that time.
