Get that roof rack off and that thing will look hot. Hard to tell, but do those wheels some some serious offset? Looks like it's sticking out a lot farther. Mine are offset pretty far....took me a while to get used to it, but I actually think it makes it look a lot meaner.

Oh, I hope you had them remove the racks before being painted in case you do ever decide to remove them. If not you'll have some nice racing stripes :-D

im actually gonna leave the roof racks on, i like the looks of them. only thing is im gonna have them sprayed with chrome paint. so it looks like this beauty.for those of you who dont like roof racks whatcha think of this? also its a 30 offset rim and fits flush with the fenders

so finally went to check on the truck today. only the door jams were done:cry: taking a little longer than expected, its okay i would rather they took their time and do it clean then rushing out a crap job. well at least got to see some color on the car. heres some pics.

all sanded and ready to paint exterior.




door jam pics









thats all for now tell me what you guys think so far.

nice what a random ass color. should be pretty cool
thanks man, been debating on colors for a while now and wanted something different. so i seen the colorado extreme and the color just caught my eye. everybody was telling me that the blue might be too bright on the trailblazer but if you look at the colorado body lines and the trailblazer lines they look kind of similar, so i thought if it looks good for the colorado it should look good on the trailblazer.:thumbsup:

that part I know.. was just curious if you were gonna carry the color into the interior or go with a subtle black and silver for the inside..

btw, how much is this costing you and where is it being done (if you dont mind me asking)

nah probably gonna keep the interior stock until i get tired of it. if anything probably might paint all the plastic interior pieces since the blue matches good with the grey interior, but thats a mod thats least on my mind. i have a painter here on hawaii that i trust and have been going to him for all my cars and bikes. hes hooking it up and he uses only factory paint with lifetime warrenty on the paint. charging me a grand for everything:thumbsup:
