    Question what else should I do?

    I'm wanting to spruce up the outside of the car a bit. Not sure what to do. I'm thinking I'll change up the headlights, but don't wanna drop the $$$ for projectors at this point. I'm debating these, but not sure how good they'd look on a black car. Any one got pics?

    I'd get that whole package right there, corners and all, if I do it at all. What do you think?

    Any opinions on anything else I can do, that's not totally over done, to spruce up the outside a bit? And don't say lower it, because yes, I know it needs lowered. But I'm getting longtubes and I can't lower it while it's still a daily driver. Window tint is also in the near future. I almost forgot....SS Spoiler is in my garage right now, gotta get it repainted due to a terrible job by the first painter.

    Here's the car:




    If the eBay link is not allowed, let me know and I'll remove it.

    Thanks for your input in advance folks.

    A nice set of silver aniversary stripes (to go with the rims) and cowl induction hood. That would really make that car stand out. I wouldnt do the headlight thing. It makes it look too much like a "ricer".

    Even though you said not to say this here is a common suggestion:

    Lower that 4x4!

    Nice car man!

    I can't tell for sure in your pictures, but if you haven't removed the side molding yet, you might want to look into that as well.

    i would do clear turnsignals/rear markers, !molding, and an exhaust system, that will help looks and performance.

    3rd brake light & probably a billet grille man. I have those halo's on my Pewter and love em, but they look way better on a black car like yours.

    Yeah, I did that on my 96, and will do it on this one, but might wait until I'm ready to repaint the car. The guy I bought it from hit a deer and when the dealership replaced the fender, the dumbasses glued the badges on, so I'm afraid to see what's under the molding...the badges pulled paint off in one spot, I don't want a stripe of bare metal all down the car. Not the look I'm tryin' to go for here lol. I'll probably go with a Borla adj catback before long, so that'll take care of the exhaust tip issue. When money allows, I'll be going with TT II's and ditching the C5's. Just got some suspension parts in today, and have a couple more I'm gonna order, then I need to take it easy on the money for a while. I'm trying to buy a house and that's hard to do when all my money is spent on goodies for the car. So PHB, sway bars, and that headlight package and then get my spoiler on...then I'll save for the catback and try to call it a day until I can save some more $$. Thanks for the input fellas.
