Been awhile.... G8 updates (fresh paint and wheels)
Friday, June 08, 2012 2:00 PM
So long time member here, don't have a J anymore, but I still hang around here sometimes.

Just got the car back after a few issues with a car wash messing up my front bumper after it fell off the track. Also fixed some scratches and rock chips. Had the door handles painted to match the body color, had the lower front grilles painted, and tossed on some Camaro 20s with Sumitomo HRZ III tires (F-245/35/20 R-275/30/20)

Pics taken with HTC One X (sorry for the quality)

I am usually not a fan of red vehicles, but in this case, the red looks amazing! My only complaint is the front license plate. It ruins the aggressive look of the front end IMO. I wouldn't change anything else though.

They weren't body color to begin with?

Yea, I think I'm going to have the plate mount shaved off and just go with one of those hidden plate systems.

The doorhandles/window trim are chrome from the factory.

I bet a fellow G8 v6 owner would have traded you handles even up. Either way, car looks good. I like the CHROME myself, but looks good blacked out too.

between u and juicyj's G8, I'd love to have both of them, cars r SICK!! and I agree those wheel look mint on ur car, better than on the Camaro, the edge of the hood scoupes should be black to match the rest of it but it still looks mean as fuk

It will look perfect without the front plate!

Got cha! Definitely a good call on color matching the handles then !
