It has been a while since I posted pics of the G coupe. I washed and polished it and took some pics, so I thought I'd share it in its current state.
Thanks. I liked the way the tint looks so I did it. No other reason. It's film so it can be removed if the next owner wants to.very very nice G. i cant wait to buy one. can i ask why you tinted the tail lights? in my opinion it takes away from the cleanliness of the car. just my opinion tho
ohhhh i see. yeah that's a lot better i suppose. non of that rattle can BS tint you can find.. i actually don't mind it, i just always see at as a permanent thing, but i guess when you use the fil, you can remove it whenever you wantThanks.

Thanks for the compliments on the car. My goal was to be different and sporty but still classy. The side body molding was a factory option on some cars and it was on this car when I bought it. I thought about removing it but it served a purpose so I left it.
I think each car has to stand on it's own and color can really work for the sum total.
A monochromatic look with much of the trim and chrome accoutrements either shaved off or painted to match is something I always thought looked sporty. Some colors more so than others though.
As in the photos of the red coupe, the trunk emblem delete, and most everything else done looks spot-on to me. Not overdone but just right.
I never noticed a G with side molding before and it actually looks good lower on the body and painted to match.
You can debadge the trunk with a heat gun / hair dryer and something non-marring to the paint to pry them off. Some people use dental floss or fishing line to saw through the adhesive. When the emblems are off, you'll have to remove the residual glue. I used wd40 but some other adhesive removers would work.Now for a few questions;
If I pull the emblems off my trunk, will I have a mess on the paint under them or can I just wash and wax smooth? I don't want to get into a paint job over something that trivial and IMO, the D Graphite with some chrome isn't too bad and something I can live with, at least for now.
Might even consider painting the emblems D G color and leave-em be.
Re; The tail lamp tint- What brand is on the red coupe?
It looks great and appears to not tint the lighted part of the lens ... is that correct? Just wondering if it detracts from the rearward light display.
Per CAI; Is the filter-charger set up bypassing the factory connector/wire and does this have any effect or is that just for the warm air damper to the intake?
