I'm with B....rocks on the yellow. I wouldn't care for an all yellow grill, but an outline I think would be a good look. Here'* mine with a silver outline. Yellow might look good if you are going to continue the yellow and black theme.

Hey Grimm... love the outline of the grill.... I think I'll give that a try next weekend. I'm trying to decide between a black and yellow theme.... or a black and red theme. The original batmobile was black 'n red. Maybe I'll give it the ghetto test with some colored electrical tape.

I'll look search for instructions on clearing the corners... that looks pretty hot on the cars I've seen posted here.

EWC88: I'm in Belvidere, NJ... in Warren County.... about 5 miles from the PA state line.

It'* a really far-fetched idea, but if it could be pulled off...

Take the pontiac emblem and have the red painted yellow, and put a black "Batman" symbol in the middle!!

Hold on a second there Tim...

As a duly designated representative of the city state and county of black bonnevilles..I may caution you against yellow.

See...paint adds weight. Currently your car has uh...thunder thighs to begin with. Let'* talk weight reduction. Clear corners remove at least 2oz of weight.

Then maybe offset the weight of the airbox with an FWI (even swap). Consider how much that stock pulley on the supercharger weights. OMG... you could replace that with an aluminum MPS system and drop like 3lbs, a shorter belt to go with that (all this weight loss...took an inch or so off her waist already). Bet it feels faster and lighter on it'* feet.

C'mon.. put down that silly paint brush..the current gen batmobile is all black..no color.. let'* make it fast like the batmobile.

Hey Boosty...

Yeah, I know the weight of the paint can really hold you back....

Quick question for you.... if I do some of these mods... (like FWI, or replacing the frisbee at the end on my SC with a smaller pulley) invalidate my warranty?? I'm a little timid after forking out a ton of dough on the new engine.

Let'* say I do the FWI and the pulley... what kind of performance improvements can I expect?

I'm not sure on the warranty. That is a consideration.

You'll change your mind about your car being fast now...to "HOLY MOTHER OF GOD"

Or

This to THIS.

Add a cam a different supercharger and some other goodies and then you'll never have a full tank of gas...you will always be smiling though.

a man after my own heart ...I've done lots of black-n-red on my Grand Prix affectionately called "ThunderBat"...I've done red calipers and plenty of red accents under the hood (with plans to go candy red powdercoat on a few items under there)...I've got less than a year left to pay on the GP then I'll be looking for a stablemate. I'd love to add a Bonne...still thinking theme though...but here are some pics
