Default I wish...

So since i'm getting a new car and keeping the bonneville, i thought maybe do some work on it, use it as a practice car.
Mostly body work, some mechanical and other random stuff.
So i made a chop at what I'd like it to look like...



some of the things done:
shaved door handles
shaved gas door (probably be located in the trunk like a friend did w/ his blazer)
Smoothed and shaved trunk
SSEi tails tinted and cleard (not the best look in the chop but it was hard to find a donor pic)
and i couldn't get it to turn out in the chop but: blackout the chrome trim
oh and lowerd a few inches


most likely very little to none of this stuff will get done seeing as i'm going to moving away to college in less than a year and i really don't have the tools to do some of the stuff, but if i don't work too much this summer maybe then. But hey i can dream can't i :P

Looks good, especially with the door handles and gas cap being shaved

hey blacking out the chrome is probably the easiest and will do much for the whole black and white theme.

I bought some "black out tape" from Murray'* and did mine, haven't had any problems with peeling or anything, just try not to have any seems, only cut where the trim ends. I have tiny gap of chrome in the middle of my front bumper from the tape shrinking in the cold.

good luck!

where are you going to school?

i like it, the shaved trunk would probably be the easiest shave, since you wouldnt have to do anything to the hardware or anything, wait, unless you dont have a remote popper...

probably try and route it in to the trunk somehow. A buddy of mine had a custom blazer and for a while he had his in the "trunk."
Hopefully its possible but if not then it'll just stay where it is :P
