Here's a shot after the mirrors, and the stb brackets were being painted, and the bar polished.

This was our first task, the rear bumper. I decided to remove the bumper, for ease of things, and it worked pretty good, IMO.

I'm going to separate the black and silver with a red pinstripe I think. I'm gonna try it out, and if I don't like it, I'll pull it.. I think It pulled together nicely personally..

Here are clean Pics to look at!

Got her clean today, so here are a few more.

I did a quick chop for you with different color stripes. I think having the strip dresses it up and finishes it of nicely. I like the red but to be honest I like them all lol.

Looks great! Red would be my choice as well. ;)

Orange and Red are definitely the best choices. Red is classic, but the Orange is also sporty and good looking. If it were my car I would get Orange because I see more Red Pinstripes than Orange. Stand out a little. .........hmm..... Orange pinstripe for Phoenix......?

That picture makes me want a Grand Am.

The pinstripe will really finish it off, though looking at the renderings I'd have a hard time deciding. I really like the orange, followed by red and yellow.

The orange pinstripe looks great but I think red matches the overall flow of the car. I can't wait to see how it looks "for real"!

Awesome updates. I really love the two-tone idea. Stellar.

Thanks everyone. I am going with Red as it matches everything else that I'm accenting with a little red. I'm also trying to not overdo any color schemes either, but I'm glad they are all vinyl, so I can peel off if I decide it's to much
