Post new Bu owner

hello, my name is Paul.I purchased my 2009 malibu ls 6 weeks ago with no intentions of modifying.I also own a 2010 chev equinox lt awd and a 1999 mitsubishi eclipse gst .The eclipse is my toy, my equinox is my wife's daily driver.i had been searching the internet for ideas for the bu after a co-worker picked up a 09 ltz.I noticed some of the differences in trim levels and wanted to jazz mine up a little.so far I did blacked out bow ties front and back,chrome door handles, chrome wheel covers (with stock look centre cap stickers on order)and a custom chrome side skirt strip.I have been creeping the site for weeks now,so I figured it was time to say hello and thank you.
cheers,
Paul

Looks good!

Wait, you added chrome below the doors? I was thinking of putting vinyl over mine. Same with the chrome around the windows.
