I think you need to make ten posts to insert images. I couldn't find anything in the help section.

That looks sweet. I didn't really care for the stock denali grille but it looks great in black.

What did you use to darken the edges of the headlights?

Thanks everyone i think it cane out pretty dang good especially for painting 90% of it myself and it looking Profesional. All the lights were smoked with clear coat that i added some carbon black metallic too. The front i had to spray whole light then keep spraying sides with smoke and start spraying front with clear to get the fade look.

Looks great, I wonder how the bushings, tie rods, etc.. will cope with the lowered suspension. I used to lower all of my cars, some took it well, others not so much.

Nice ride!! Nice seeing others customize their acadia similar to mine; did you paint the realist portion of the exhaust or did you vinyl wrap it?

Sorry to be contrarian, but those tires and rims look awful to me. Makes what was originally a nice looking vehicle look more like some teenagers idea.

Have to agree....surprised it doesn't have a fart muffler hanging out the back...but hey to each their own. Have also agree with a previous post. The front suspension on these vehicles is already under engineered. Lowering it plus the extra rolling mass of the larger wheels just makes it that much worse.

Wow, this is a friendly forum. It seems the mentality of a lot of members is that if it's different it's wrong. I can't believe the amount of negative feedback on this forum. If it's not your style just leave it at that or say nothing.

There's nothing wrong with diversity of opinion. Some of the negative comments are actually quite funny!

I agree. I find this to be a friendly forum but forums are not always the place to be if one's little feelings are easily hurt. Seems we have a country full of those these days. Welcome to generation snowflake.

I'm one of those you don't ask "does this dress make me look fat" if you aren't prepared for a truthful answer.

In this case I think over sized black wheels on a black vehicle looks stupid. I had no problem telling my son that when he did it to his TransAm and have no problem sharing that opinion with the OP. In the case of my son, after a couple of months he put the chrome wheels back on his car.
