Nice Car! But your right ,they look like truck rims on car. I found a plater for mine but cant bite on the $350 a piece for wheels.
So I'm going 18" custom chrome and sell mine to offset the price .Nate thinks we can choose from a couple styles that the Pontiac arrows will fit
or can be made to accept. The greyish OEM is definetly not going to go with paint

Maybe this could revive the GXP N* efforts too!

That would be cool... but I have to give other GXP owners much respect just for having one. They dont come cheap,
and if I was a few years younger and still paying my check away
for what I have now. I would think twice about modding an engine thats 5K in a crate plus swapout. And fiding a used one...not. If i so hurt this one , it'll hurt me
real bad but the bright side is another version of N* to replace it like the new 440 horsepower Now that would b

I so should be able to afford to buy your stock GXP rims by this summer if you get rid of them then. I think this car is going to be awesome and I may have to stop by and check out the progress once you get it back from the shop.

Not sure of the paint brand or ?. Not a painter, thats for sure.I t'* done in "candy" paints and thats about what I know of it. Mods? Not much can be done with the N*...
( why I went all out with the nitrous injection) It passes through undetected by PCM, Make intake breath better and TB rebore. Exhaust breaths pretty well for stock
(sound clip in N* forum). It will probably remain till it needs replacing, which doesnt take long in these parts. Then high flow cats, Flowmaster or Corsa stainless mufflers
and SLE tips. If the engine hokds up that long
I will get ahold of you after she comes out of shop, Geoff and you can come down to the lake and check her out.( maybe cruze the parkway for some ricers,eh?)
The wheels definately have to go but I dont know what to ask for them. they wont work with the paint, and to expensive to plate. Probably post them on ebay and link here.
If I lamb the doors this summer. this years war chest will be empty so I'll need the bucks to offset the new ones.And still have sound and neons to consider.

Sounds like a good plan so far.. I'd have to say, just don't do the Lambo doors though. Makes the car cheapened IMO because everyone knows that the Bonneville never came with anything like that. It'* just o.k. on exotic cars IMO, but on anything other than a 250k+ car... naw, not my thing.
