found a guy on kijiji with 404,000km on his GA and he had trouble selling it so i asked him if he'd part it out (more like swap hoods and trunks), so he agreed and we exchanged hoods and trunk lids...so my gain here was a scratch-free trunk lid with an sc/t spoiler and a factory sc/t hood...my old trunk had tons of micro scratches...so i paid $480 on top and i think it was a wise move i made, my car looks 100% more complete ! :bacon:

Something about the tailights don't agree with the rest of the car IMO but the rest looks brilliant!

(Forget if i've said that about the tails or not)

I have to agree with Jim on this one, I love everything about your car but the taillights. They seem a little too flashy for what you've done with the rest of your car. To each their own however!

LOLLL those are the tyc tails and they're rare...most ppl on GAOC have tyc's or the led tails...ill probably give the black led tails a try and see how they look...theres a few ppl on cardomain who has done tyc's on silver GA's and they look great, maybe coz there was too much sunlight in the pic above

anywho...i added an sc/t badge on the trunk lid and got a black overlay for the pontiac logo :lol:

I dunno, they look alright it's just they don't go with the GA too well. They look like they belong on a Japanese import POS IMO. Then again I'm not a big fan of those busy looking high-tech tail lights. I am a fan of tinted tails or stock tails or upgrade stock tails with LEDs.

If you like them that's all that matters though :lol:

Car looks good...but TYC's? Ugh...

Should have gone with the 2nd gen LED tails. 50/50 tinted they're the best tails hands down.
