Default New Tips!

Well this is a continuation of a thread from appearance & detailing ( http://bonnevilleclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=55372 ), but will be mostly pics of shiny cars, and my new tips! Which I'm quite happy with

Check out this black chrome in the bright sunlight, it'* awesome, shiny, but not in your face shiny. Epic.



Installed:




Nice!

Results of washing both cars most of the early afternoon:





Size comparison between the new and the old:


Went over and took some pics by the town'* pond:

Nice exhaust!:






Fin:


I think the right one is a touch lower than the left, I may fix that when I cut off the excess bolt on the clamps. Note: I don't wanna hear any negatives about using exhaust clamps, I know the compromises.

Now, I'm not sure if anyone else has thought this before, but we thought they actually did change the sound of the exhaust, VERY slightly, but it defanitely changed it.

Enjoy!

Absolutely! Those were exact words pretty much when we found them.

Ryan was looking at those same tips. They look great! They fit perfectly! I would of had them tucked back about an 1" more but that is just me. Other then that add some 18"-19" Konig Unknowns and tint and you have my dream car!

There was much discussion regarding positioning, and I liked seeing a little bit of the "black chromy-ness" so they were kept out just a little bit, but without looking stupid.

The car is tinted quite bit, or did you want EVEN more?

I looked up those rims too, they'd be neat.

EDIT: Looking at the pics again, I think cause of the EXTREMELY intense sunlight the tint looks like it'* not there, but there'* a good bit of tint on both cars... Like the windows usually look black...

That probably explains why my arms are red from being outside all day :P

I'm building a sub box for a friend in the near future, and we never did get a chance to meet, what was that, 2 or 3 years ago?

And that'* good to hear, I was concerned about the quality of these tips longterm.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments!
