My Impala LTZ mod thread

So I'm relatively new to the forum. I've had my Impala a little over a year now and I'm very happy with it and also loved that I discovered this site. It gives me ideas I wouldn't have thought of without it so here is some pictures of what I've done to it so far. More to come and ideas welcome.

The day I got her had tints put on before driving it off the lot.
Tinted the tail lights.

Tires taken off to black out.

Still blacking out rims also refreshing black pillers.

Rims done just getting the look of it.

All back together and looking good.

Final results also added 3" chrome exhaust tips.
Blacket out bowtie front and back.


Blue interior lighting on a switch.

Leather shifter.


Black reflective bowtie on steering wheel.

All interior lights changed to LEDs.

LED reverse and licence plate lights.

I have more mod pictures to come soon.

I must say, that color does go really well with the black (tinted windows, black wheels, etc).

Look great!

Here are some more pictures.

Added switchbacks.


Plasti Dipped my grill trim

All finished and Plasti Dip under the lower grill. You can see the switchbacks on.

Added 2 LED strips in the trunk pretty dang bright. Need a better picture of it with an actually clean trunk lol.

Looks good! I think the Uhhh was in reference to doing under black, but not between the grills.

IMO, the back strip and window trim, maybe even door handles, should be black. But that's JMO.

Oh okay I see I just didn't really like it black between but I did under doesn't stand out enough either. Also thanks for the opinions and might just do that but I kind of like the chrome bar on the back goes with the reverse lights but the other two most definitely.
