Smile removed door strips and door emblem

so my car is dirty atm -.- but anyways, i decided to remove the door strips because theyre ugly and they're pretty much useless on the firebird. a few weeks ago i removed the firebird emblems too. i got my high rised hatch painted and stuff, planning on putting them on very soon maybe after this weekend! but heres without door molding. (i got the sunshade for free)

Looks good. I need to pull my side moldings soon. I also have the same kind of sun shade, lol. Works well.

Looks clean. Still unsure how I feel about the BSM delete look though.
That sunshade looks like it leaves alot of dash exposed to the sun though.

It does, but it protects the soft vinyl part of the dash. It also folds away nicely and is convenient (fast to use, store, etc.). The massive vertical folding reflector style sunshades don't really work any better in these cars because of the rounded shape of the windshield, and due to their size you either keep them in the trunk, or clutter up your back/passenger seat (that's what I found through trial and error... lol).

I agree. The custom fit shades I believe are the absolute best for protection. However, they too are rather large.
