How did you apply the black matte? Vinyl? Paint?

Thank you all for the compliments. I did bake/smoke the taillights, but only two coats I guess, didn't want them blacked out completely. And everything is painted, after the chrome was sanded down or whatever they did. I am ready to drop and add 20's now. I had the RSR super downs delivered last week. Gonna drop it on stock wheels for a while and see if any issues arise (like those mentioned by other members in other threads). My wife is also making me work extra to pay for the rims/tires before getting them. Gotta love her

I like the black out around the side windows. The current chrome is over the top for me.

Hahaha! It's fair enough, these things are more of a want than a need! But we (GS enthusiasts) gotta have it, no doubt. I failed to mention my wife is going to deliver our first child anytime (actually due today), so shes using that against me as well!! Haha, her point is well taken

That looks so good . Very Stealth, I was debating on doing the chrome trim. When you debadeged were the holes under the GS350?

Thanks 408. No there were not any holes under the GS350, he said it came right off. I like that, stealth...good way to describe it, especially at night! Matte graphite 20's, dropped will hopefully set it off. I think even simply doing the side chrome gives the one piece/panoramic look, with tint of course.
