Today I debadge and demolded my 04 trailblazer. It took longer that I thought but very pleased with the results. I need some more suggestions on some mods I have Window Tint, HID's(High, Low, and Fog), Color Matched Door Handles, White Bowtie, Paint Plastic. Any other suggestions? I will post some pictures tomorrow

I am going to install interior LED's at the same time I do HID's. Rims will be later on but it is on the list just can't decide 22's or 24's.

U could definately do the whole thing. Its a lot more work. I just like a lil contrast with the black. Plus if the paint doesn't match exactly it won't show just with the mirror cover painted.

My uncle is a professional painter so I am not really concerned too much on making it match and the work. Not trying to brag but just saying idk how much work it is to do the whole thing

Are you talking about the black thing to lift up the glass? or the actual piece you lift it up with?

And the antenna delete...u could take the antenna off and run some wire under windshield weatherstripping, or just take the whole mast of and hide it under the cowl. I did this but reception kinda sucks. So I replaced the antenna with a shorter one and put it back in its original location.

The antenna delete mod is there a place I order a smaller one from or could you help me with this process? The window lift mod doesn't look like it is worth it now.. Does it just make it look cleaner?

Window hatch handle delete. Antenna delete.

Antenna delete. Get a nut or two (I used 2) and 2 washers that fit the antenna stud. Use those to clamp in some wire to act as your new antenna and hide the wire under your hood.

Window hatch handle delete. Take off the handle on your rear glass, use lag bolts, nuts and neoprene washers to hold the latch in place.

No. U could use the stock antenna. Unbolt the wole shabang. (Meaning the mast which is what the antenna screws on to.) And stick it under the cowl. Or unsrew the antenna , get some speaker wire , and use 2 nuts to sandwich the wire onto the antenna mast. Then stick the wire under the weather stripping on the side of the windshield.

"Sorry about that fugly ass decal" HAHAHAHAHA What is the deal with the old website? I am leaving the roof rack on cause we go on beach trips a few times a year and I am in the process of saving up for 2 SA 12's in a ported box and won't have any room for the suitcases and want to leave to beat in for the ride down :biggrin:

Its in appearance because It started off as exterior mods. I am going for the clean/white out look so I don't really care for the blacked out taillight just my opinion

You can color match your taillights!! Just do not paint the parts that light up when braking etc. That will help with the White out look! :yes:

So I can actually just take it off and just leave it the way it is and I will be fine?

Yupp just unscrew it and I put in under the back seats for safe keeping and you wont have a problem. Maybe your radio will work just fine also like mine without it! Try it out and see! :thumbsup:

Also if you don't use your onstar remove that antenna also! No reason for that random one there you know
