LS "evo" Mod You Could Say....?

Always been a huge fan of the evo mod on the SS. So I tried to figure out how to do something similar on mine :D
The edges are a bit rough and dont look too good because I did a quick tape job due to not being sure how it would actually look! But I liked the turn out

Thoughts?
Oh also did my grill black with a coat of gloss over it instead of the lame grey :P

I can see the ugly duckling bumper is blossoming into a beautiful swan. Good job, keep up the tasteful cosmedics.

That looks good. I might have to steal that idea, if you don't mind of course.

Maybe try painting or plasti dipping the silver beam across the front grill and the lower bumper part. Looks good though now.

lol, I did this to my grille pieces and fog light shroud. Looks 100% better than stock gray. I'm not sure it would look great with those two pieces painted though. Maybe plastic dip to see if you like it first. Or maybe someone can photoshop it for you to get an idea.

By all means go for it! I thought about the lower bumper but wasn't too sure where to cut off the "paint" that's the only reason I didn't do it, but I may go out and try it later! Iv also thought about the black silver piece where the bow tie is too... Guess I just found my projects for my day off :p

Thanks for the positive replys guys!

i recommend doing the plasti dip idea. i did my beam on mine, and i love it. i would suggest like 10 coats. i did 6, and it could use some more. mine starting to peel off when i was removing the tape, so you might want to peel off the tape as soon as you spray your last coat so it doesn't bond to the tape.

I love it on my SS bumper.



But on your car...just do the top.

Don't bother with the bottom half, IMO.
