Have you Debadged it yet or changed the exhaust with good sounding mufflers and nice tips? Plastidipped the trunk trim and wheels and a mesh grill?

Plasti dip or shave the badges

Wheels and tires (although I am a fan of the 08 SS wheels :eek:k3:)

Replace interior bulbs, reverse lights, license plate lights with LEDs

Lower it

Rims, badges, grille, window trim, anything that you think would look good black. If you don't like it, you can just peel it off, so get creative!

I think a white car with everything blacked out looks sweet :eek:k3:

Haha the good thing is that plasti dip is a cheap way to make some mods that will stand out. Debadging is free and makes the car look a WHOLE lot cleaner.

Plasti dip or debadging?

debadging is just taking the factory emblems off of your car. There's a write-up somewhere on here. It's pretty simple.

I took a heat gun and used it to heat up the adhesive keeping the emblem to the car, then ran some wire through it to get it off. I used windex and my finger nail to get as much as the adhesive off of the paint as I could. I then used some goo-gone to get any adhesive I couldn't get with my finger nail. Wash and wax IMMEDIATELY after using the goo-gone so that it doesn't sit on your car eating away at the paint. Give the area a good buffing and waxing afterwards, and you're done!

Plasti dip you can get from dipyourcar.com or from NAPA or home depot. It is very easy to get off so long as you put enough coats on (4 is a good number of coats). There are lots of videos on youtube of people peeling it off.
