    OFFICIAL: Project DARK KNIGHT

    I own a 2000 WS6 Black on Black T/A WS6. Its really the only LS1 F-Body around in my area especially a black one. Random People, Small Children, and friends call my car "The Batmobile". So I figured I would take advantage of this opportunity and maybe try and be a little different....My brothers best friend owned a comic book store in NYC so I have been around comics for quite some time...
    So project "Dark Knight" has started...a slight twist of everyone calling my car the "batmobile". I will be updating this post regularly so if you are interested please watch the post and any comments (good or bad) please post and let me know your thoughts.

    PHASE ONE: The Car (present state)
    2000 WS6 T/A


    - WINDOW TINT (SMOKE)
    - COILOVER SUSPENSION (LOWERED NOW 2.5" FRONT 2.0" REAR)

    PHASE TWO: WHEELS/ TIRES

    ON THE WAY: (pics by the end of the week)

    Wheels Front-17x9.5 Black ZR1 w/ Polished Ring
    Tires Front- 275/40/17 Nitto 555

    Wheels Rear- 17x11 Black ZR1 w/ Polished Ring
    Tires Rear - 315/35/17 Nitto 555R

    UPDATE Project DARK KNIGHT

    Im going to try and have the front license plate cover (I never run a plate in the front...and yes I live in NY) smoothed and instead of having the firebird decal on the front have this:


    (IT WILL NOT SAY "THE DARK KNIGHT"...SIMPLY JUST THE SYMBOL)

    The car is currently de-badged as well and only the "ram air" is still intact. Im not sure if I should keep this or not?

    I also want to do the same things to the center rear tail lamp. Black out the center tail lamp where the firebird logo is as well as it says "firebird" as you can see in the above pic of my car. I want to try and make it subtle. I was thinking of a matte black or something to that affect.
    I would like your guys opinions on this project and all opinions and ideas are welcome....

    Pics of the wheels installed will be here by the end of the week...

    Leave the tail lights alone!! They are perfect as is.

    Those black ZR1's aren't my thing. Too much black.

    IMO dont blackout the tailights. Yeah you want all black but the honeycomb is a defining feature and an awesome at that.

    Take off the side moldings too.

    Do what I did and get some Tail Shades...I love them and they stay on, even at 160mph+ They look awesome on black cars, and only black cars, imo.

    Granted they are illegal and I've been told by cops (I was pulled over for other reasons) to take them off...I just put them back on later

    Here is my car with them on (and the rims you want too ):

    The blacked out tails look a WHOLE LOT better with the bird still on the center piece.
    And with the PONTIAC emblem color changed to match the rest of the cars coloring.

    Im not going to black out the entire tail lights...just the center piece where the firebird is and replace that with the "Dark Knight" Emblem above. Its already black as you can see in the pic above...Im just getting rid of the "firebird" logo and name and just placing the "Dark Knight" emblem. I love the honecomb and Im definitely keeping that!

    Im going to smoke the side markers too!

    Im going to try and tint the Fog Lights too...does anybody sell tinted fog lights?

    Thanks,
    Evan

    You can either VHT Nightshade them or buy some covers off of eBay.

    Not overall...but normally on these cars I do.

    It really depends on the car for me, and with the unique tails we have...I can't bring myself to cover them up.

    Chrome/Aluminum...all of my emblems are, adds a nice contrast to the black.

    OK, Just so you know, I'm not copying you.

    I ordered brushed aluminum door letters and the rear bird from tss recentely, not realizing it was already done.

    Does look nice though. I guess I made a good choice.

    haha...no problem, it's your car. I don't know who first said this quote, but it's one of my favorite.
