Need some ideas pls

Hey everyone, I am kinda new to the site, I have an 05 White Cobalt LS. Sorry I dont have any pics to post of it yet but they will be posted soon. Over the weekend my brother and I decided to do the mesh grill, I noticed some of the pics ppl on here posted when they did theirs so just thought it would look pretty cool. But now I am looking for other ideas, I had a few but didnt know how they would work out. I wanted to do a pink and white theme, i wanted to paint my dash (the silver parts) pink, wanted to do my bowtie pink and just for now paint my stock rims and I dont mean paint the whole rim but like the divet areas would be pink and also do my calipers pink. I am sure most of you guys wont be feelin this idea so if you dont like this idea could you give me some other ones. I was also thinking maybe green and white I'm just not sure. Any ideas would be appreciated, so thanks in advance.

If you do pink, hopefully you will avoid the neon pink, lol, otherwise, pink would be different.

Other possible minor mods for looks, debadging, painting accents under the hood, (if you can find it)Pink window tint(a possibility only used by some), Pink pinstriping.........

just don't do purple. That's MY thing, LOL.

Just keep in mind that everyone will know the car belongs to a girl. Might wanna consider that if you travel alone a lot. But if you have an entourage of big thugs traveling with you or you happen to know jujitsu, go for it Fortunately there are tons of acessories to go with a pink theme, but purple is a real chore, I tell you.

It will def. not be hot pink lol, I was thinking more of a light pink but that wonít be as noticeable so i think that is out. I just think it might be really hard to get a paint that will be what I want. Maybe a darker metallic pink, would look cool. I might end up just doing my calipers in white because the only pink caliper paint I can find is from G2 and I'm not sure if I like that.

LOL an entourage of big thugs. I think I will be ok with people knowing itís a girls car, I donít mind the attention lol

I almost went with pink, but didn't wanna worry about some weirdo staking out my car waiting for me to come back. I also kinda figured my bf would refuse to work on it or drive it anywhere, LOL.

I think some pastel pink stripes would look good. That or a nice vibrant blue. That's the good thing about white- just about everything goes with it!

Is your car a coupe or sedan?

to be honest i think pink would be kinda cool but it would be hard sticking to the same shade on everything. but i'm sure with a little research of the products that are used you could find a common shade of pink to handle everthing from drums, calipers, dash, and rims.. you could always go look at local powdercoating place's for the rims and drums and bowties.. then get some thing to match in a sparycan for grill mesh and interior trim. got me thinking now why did i go so common with black and white.

Airbox MOD, GMPP Intake, GMPP Catback Exhaust, SS/SC Springs, Tint, tinted tails, Painted headlights, debadged, and wheels.

"artist's concept of exterior" as for the interior, maybe get some pink vinyl for the dash trim, etc.

I'll shut up now, I promise!
