I might have one or two . I love that every time I took it in for service they will always compliment on the condition of the car.

Very nice! I think we have very similar styles in cars! I really like that thin chrome strip at the bottom of your doors - was that factory or aftermarket?

Thanks for the nice comments - I appreciate that. Yeah, that rear bumper valance/diffuser was something that we "designed" on this forum (started off with a pic of the rear of the car and simply used "MS-Paint" to mock up a few different versions of it) - then I had a local tint/vinyl shop actually do the vinyl work. After that I added some black and chrome "trim" as well. It was quite the project actually, but I too really like the results.

I actually had it done and then re-done because I wasn't 100% happy with the first version...

That's a lot of work but was well worth it. That has me really thinking because my Nissan has that same outline in my rear bumper. I know it would look great but I'm so focused on making the Impala look fantastic my car is an afterthought LOL.
