I am certainly glad there is somebody on this forum with more ambition then I have, with a car that looks the same.

You have taught me:
*5 Spoke wheels are not my taste
*Ultra Tails are not what I want
*Tinted Tails are no longer even being considered
*Park Avenue Grille rocks!
*Clear>Tinted up front
*No go on shaving door trim
*Shaving Buick badge on trunk looks awesome!

You are going down a totally different road with visual mods then I would, but I wish you the best, It is your opinion that counts!

you have any plans for paint? the yukon is scratched up and could use some paint but its a whole lot of hassle. ive been reading here and there people painting there cars with rustoleum and a high density foam roller. they say you mix it 50/50 with mineral spirits and it will lay flat and color sand to shiny. i would like to see some other people do it before i try though i think.

well, i'm impatient. the black needs a bunch of touch-up, but i like the over-all look. couple more coats of black and then several clear and all should be good.
