Looks great!? Aren't you afraid of chipping or cracking the paint when you take em on and off? Hopefully that's some real flexible paint, cause it looks fantastic!

And personally, I like the powerbar as is.

You know?  My painter mentioned that he did used some type of flexibe additive to the paint. I hope that helps with the durabilty.
 
that's awesome Mick
I say do the powerbar in blue also and then paint the center of the bowtie blue and leave about a 1/4" around the outside polished or brushed

Looks good. Now you need to paint the  tails and leave some reflector showing for brakelights.

They look just like Dune's.
Nice. I was asking because I have seen a set where they left a little red on the sides too. Look forward to seeing the pics.
 
Looks great! ?You got the front and rear covered...Did you fix the middle? ?Last pic I saw of your AV(a couple of months ago), you were in need of Gatorback!

The Southern Comfort slick kit looked mighty sweet if you wanna consider that route.

But they're for show Butch.? >:D

Yea, I knew that!  You are talking about painting that powerbar, mine has been painted for about 2 years and it is getting just  a few small chips. I am thinking about wrapping the whole front end in carbon fiber vinyl and then a custom bowtie.....the whole grill shell and the headlight covers in carbon fiber, what do you think? I even thought about the mirror covers in carbon fiber.....purple pearl flames and carbon fiber.....???

I do have carbon fiber windshield wipers and am getting carbon fiber decals for the tailgate and the AVALANCHE letters on the cladding put on this month..........

The painted headlight covers look AWESOME!  Great job!  As for the powerbar, I say paint that blue too, then go with some sort of a custom bowtie.  The tails look great too!  Keep up the good work!
