I really like reading about everyones builds, so it is time to start one. I have already done some mods but it is better late then never. I am bad about remembering to take pics as I am doing the work. I will try to get better at it. I really like to do all of the work myself. I have put a lot of thought into everything I have done so far. I want the car to look like it was planned out start to finish. I really wanted to bring some old into the new. Like the 69' shift knob, and the old SS emblem, the hash marks from the Trans AM series and the tail lights black out. My wife and two kids and I really like to take the car to shows and talk to people about it. Now a little about my car.

I got a new SS emblem and V2 22" RBG scanner for Xmas. Last night I got board so I decided to install them last night. It was late & cold but I couldn't wait any longer. I was able to slip my hand down behide the grille and put the SS emblem on. I looked at it a couple of times to mahe sure I got it in the middle slot. Well I should of looked at it three times because I got to install it twice it was wrong. It took me a lot longer then I thought it was going to for the scanner. I took my die grinder and ground down the back side of the bumper. That way it was easier to cut with the exacto knife. Make sure and use lots of tape to cover everything around where you are working. It is very easy to slip and sratch something. The 3m tape didn't stick very well, I think it was to cold so I will have to fix that.

Looking real good dirt! We are going to have to Caravan i guess to CFest II together and meet up with Aqua in Indiana?!

TJ91 01-11-2012 03:36 AM

Nice build man, and I have to add...Great colour choice :D

Im supposed to be getting the GFX kit from another member but I planned on getting the ZL1 front end, not sure if they would clash or not. Think I have a solution for that though so stay tuned.....well tune back in a few monthes because it will happen in spring haha

Thank you. I am kind of fond of the color ;-) I think the gfx would look good with the ZL1 front end.

RED DEMON SS 01-14-2012 08:17 PM

I just got a set of orange anodized aluminum panels for the bottom of the door panels. I will be installing those very soon. I am waiting for a friend to get his paint booth done. Then I am going to be doing some painting :D. At the same time I have a street scene front splitter to paint and install. I can't really do to much right because my garage is full. This what my baby looks like right now:thumbdown: Attachment 324570
