    I feel black looks best just as one color.
    And of course...cleaned up really nice.

    What I went with....

    Agreed^

    No real need to add a secondary color to black. If you insist though, I would go with polished/silver look with black.

    It really seems that there is a fine line between cool and gaudy on black cars. I agree that a silver accent theme can look nice, if not overdone. Some of the red looks ok too, it really just depends. Take a run through the Member's Rides threads or any of the photo threads to get some ideas.

    On our car, we painted the nose and hood a few months ago. As of yet, I have not re-applied the "Ram Air" hood graphics. The all black look has kind of grown on me.

    Thanks!

    The only thing I have really done appearance wise is the wheels and the niteshades on the corners and 3rd brake light.
    I suppose the drop is appearance, but I got the best performing springs available....in the Strano's.

    If your set on not keeping it black, like Mr. Luos, bigguns and ls1camino, I think the only colors acceptable (that I've seen) are sliver/polished, red or white.

    But it's all personal preference.

    I would thumb through "show off your bird" thread and see if you find anything you like.

    I think I will eventually do this.
    Although it will be SO subtle, the pictures I take probably won't show them. In certain lights, they will not be noticeable either.

    I am a fan of subtle....if you couldn't tell.

    black is the most subtle color you can get on a T/A, hides all the scoops and such

    I just recently got the red ram air decals and the pontiac headlight and pontiac rear letters as well as the pilar birds and I love the way it all looks. Before I had it all black and I liked it but idk it needed a little something else for me. I also added the license plate cover bird, the flag one, and I love the way the front of my car looks now, I'm just waiting on the red trans am emblems then ill get some side pics for ya

    Of course I also love the look of mr.luos t/a!!

    I think you should add some color by getting black wheels! lol. I love the complete blacked out look.

    I wasn't crazy about the pinstripes but I had my license plate cover painted Gold as well as the Pontiac lettering and the Trans Ams emblems on both sides on my 98. I thought it looked pretty cool.
