Looking Good! For the radio bezel, check ebay. I've seen them on there for around $50.

Looks good! Just a little fine peeling left to do.

Not sure how I feel about just the Impala being dipped and not the circle...I feel like those are an "all or nothing" dipping option.

^ I somewhat agree with you. I previously had mine dipped black with the blue deer, but re-dipped it all black because IMO, it looked better all black. I think it depends a lot on what color the car is and what other mods are done to it...

I agree with you both. Looks better done completely. Will be doing mine Saturday. Is it difficult to remove the excess plasti dip on the inside of the emblem? I got fat fingers haha. Want to make sure I can remove the excess completely.

I used a toothpick to get it out of the center portion. Easy as cake

I agree with you man. My old car had all blue leds and while it was cool it got boring and wasn't alot of light output. Changing any other bulbs out? If you need any help I've done all inside light bulbs to led.
