Some minor debadging and colormatching on the Escalade. Colormatched the hood trim and added a colormatched smooth rear license applique in place of the cadillac one. Also debadged the tailgate and doors. I have colormatched handles in a box waiting to go on and I need to buy another hitch cover since mine decided it had better things to do. Then hopefully it on to a 3/5. have all the parts, just waiting on time to do it.

After almost a year of having parts sitting in a box I finally had the time to get my drop parts on yesterday after work. Parts should around 3.5 up front and 4ish in the rear but it feels lower. Gonna let it settle and adjust accordingly. Could stand to come down another inch all around. Also threw on my cv73 22s with 275/40s. Fender vents and new hitch cover are at the painter. Exhaust next and I'll be happy with it for a while. 20220326_190437.jpg20220326_190418.jpg20220326_190510.jpg20220326_190518.jpg20220327_172432.jpg

Still need to do a little trimming. Free travel mod and reroute the exhaust when I add a muffler. Pretty happy overall though.

Free travel mod done. Also added colormatched fender vents. Another inch of drop and it will be perfect. 20220402_174657.jpg20220402_073911.jpg20220402_184923.jpg20220402_184916.jpg

Went a little lower in the rear. 3.5/5 now but I also traded my 22s and some cash for a set of Billet Specialties Fury 6 24s. 1-of-1 set that was designed as a prototype for the owners truck and then sold to a buddy who eventually sold them and so forth. Confirmed by Billet Specialties that this is the only set ever made which I thought was rad. They are 3 piece 24x10s with 305/35s right now. I was able to keep the same drop with almost no rubbing but ill need 295/30s to get it back as low as I want. 20220503_114823.jpg20220503_114933.jpg20220503_112723.jpg20220503_114909.jpg20220503_114924.jpg

That looks sick. If you ever decide to sell the wheels please let me know.
What‘s next? More cosmetic or some performance? Anymore color matching? I say the the window trim / the bottom chrome do it black or color match.

sexy. with no rubbing and rarity of the wheel i'd consider keeping the 305/35 for more sidewall
Man I would if I didn't want to be lower lol. They'll definitely be staying a while though before i go any smaller.

Performance oriented mods next. Starting with brake upgrades, custom tune, and maybe bigger sway bars right now. Cam and headers in the near-ish future and eventually I want to put a blower on it.

Honestly I think im happy with the amount of contrast I have right now. I wanted to keep some chrome since I'll always have some polished/chrome wheels on it.

I do want to find another set of oem headlights to clear and I'm going to do the brakes in the cadillac performance yellow when I upgrade.
