Used a paintless dent repair place. Had them wash, buff and wax it too. I am REALLY happy.
They did an excellent job. 450 bucks for everything.

Also added the functional side marker lights recently.

What a sleeper. Were the vents already in the fenders or different fenders?

Vents were already there.
I like how they look. They were 225 shipped.

Do people ask you what kind of car it is? Do many car guys know what you've got?

Looks really sharp all cleaned up! I like the new vents.

Just needs a Holden badge up front and it will be spot-on.

The whole grill is on it's way. I know it is wrong but I got a bunch of HSV stuff for free.
I have that stuff on it on now. So I was able to pick up an HSV grill used cheap.

I guess it is kind of a Holden Special Vehicle, being a police spec Caprice. I would love to get the HSV Grange Bar.

Some people know what it is. Washington state Patrol purchased 700 of them to replace their Crown Vics. Most are white and marked.

My county has two unmarked cars. One black like mine and the other is a gun metal gray.

No one even thinks mine is a police car because it looks pretty different now.

Usually people will ask what it is, but it has been called a Malibu, Impala or Chevy SS.

I have a similar grill on the way. That bumper or bar is what I what I want. REALLY pricey to get it to the States.

I hate the Eagle RS-As.

Nice, the HSV was always that bit more special. The HSV Grange is equipped with the 340kW (460hp) version of the 6.2-litre LS3 V8 engine plus all the high end creature comforts inside like leather, climate control, etc. It's a very nice car.

You have some great cars there Mike, with your 2000 Trans Am 5.7 LS1 and your 2014 Caprice PPV 6.0 L77
