Default It's the little touches that make it special

I have been on a quest to go all black and yellow on my car ever since I got it and I am almost done. Started with the emblems and blacked out all the lights, new seat skins, painted the calipers then removed the red silicone coupler under the hood and got yellow plug wires. Tried for over a year to find someone to make me these and finally found someone in January, they actually came today! Took forever but I wasn't in a hurry.

Before:


After:


Got this too:


The emblems if you haven't seen them before:


He's also getting me a decal for my airbridge and then that should be enough although I have red in the flags on my floormats but will sell those soon and get some new ones that go with my "theme".

Alex, who is cyberdine graphics made them, he is a flake hence the 6 month wait. It's too hard to deal with him direct so Bryan at Vette Works International handled it all for me and he is a really great guy to do business with if you ever get the chance.

That looks great, where did you get the emblems from? I would like to go with black & white only.

Looks good. My car is monochromatic and I wanted to keep everything black and white. My emblems at now black and white including the waterfall. I got the emblems thingies from Chip at Custom Corvette Accessories.
