In the process of shooting my grill satin black. I did the razor bars a long time ago and I've been agonizing over doing the rest of it ever since. This morning evidently the time was right. Now waiting for the third coat to dry.
I am a old guy so unlike you young guy I like the chrome, But I like the paint grill.

Voila. I'm happy with the look. Don't know about the young guy label.....I think I was the champion "Old Guy" on the other forum and I don't seem to be getting any younger. LOL
I do like your paint on the razor bars though. It's different. I like your tires too!

Larry, I like it.  I liked just the razor bars too.  I wish I was handy enough to attempt it.  And, don't worry, there are a lot of old guys here.

Larry see if this place can make you an awesome black and chrome or maybe black with body color badge for the grill.

I have started to data log the SHO. Need a lot of stock info to compare back to when tuned.
2013 SHO No mods... yet

I want to do a comparison when I get my ODB Link MX and Torque Pro.  What parameters are you going to compare?  Besides boost of course.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

I still can't believe how amazing they are.. WAY more responsive and stickier than I hoped they'd be, not to mention the weight and rotational mass saved between the wheels and tires. Now to see what that added grip and weight savings translates to at Milan..  ;D

I haven't run mine at the strip.  I have about 15-17K on them. They should go at least 30K.  Mine are 18" so rotate about 7% more than yours.  Now that I  have my PPE Downpipes, I will eventually go to Cedar Falls Raceway, if it ever stops raining.

I took (parts of) my next secret squirrelly performance mod to the powder coater for PC'ing.

Also began looking at other (color matched) parts for the remainder of it.
