It always starts with one...
 
I got my nameplate yesterday, now that it's "installed" it feels like it's mine (on a whole new level). Funny how a 3 inch piece of plastic can do so much. Now it's time to see how far I'll go....

money vs. mods
:seesaw:

And some pics...since the nameplate, yesterday, I've added vent inserts and "6.2L" to the hood

New SS kick plates now installed

Nice. I wanted to see how the SS ones looked when installed. Are you happy with the fitment?

Tysen 03-09-2010 02:44 PM

Where can those kick plates be ordered? I saw some chrome ones but I'm looking for body colored.

BEARS-SS 03-09-2010 03:13 PM

Mindz, the fit is excellent. I was extremely impressed with how they wrapped around the speaker!

Tysen, you can call Kyle at 1-888-9BILLET to order. Mine were $89.95 if I remember right.

Tysen 03-09-2010 03:30 PM

Thanks for the info BEARS-SS.
How do they attach? 2 sided tape?

As soon as I got them, about a week before I suspected, I ran out to Autozone and bought some 2 sided tape to put them on. You can probably use that, or because the fit is so well, you could get some more perminent bonding to put them on.

The cosmetics are coming to a close, for now. I have made my appointment to get the GFX package painted IOM, the wheels painted black, and the finish off the re-badging. I'll go to Florida for a week, and she'll be patiently waiting for me when I get back. I won't be quite as patient getting to her.

BEARS-SS 04-09-2010 03:58 PM

Check out the new ink...

I took a trip to Florida for a week, decided to get a little bit done to the baby while I was gone. Let me know what you think. I decided a while ago to get all of the gold, chrome, and red off of my IOM, here's what they did.

New door locks...

Tysen 04-10-2010 02:36 PM

So are you going to get personalized plates that say "DA BEARS"?

BEARS-SS 04-11-2010 09:39 AM

I would love to, but the only plate in VA that allows that is the "friends of Tibet" plate...I don't even know Tibet. Thanks for serving, Tysen, never been to Afghanistan, but just got back from Iraq a few months ago.

Tysen 04-11-2010 09:54 AM

Thanks man, but I'm not in the Army anymore. I'm over here right now as a contractor. I was deployed a couple times to Iraq while I was active duty though, and that place is a resort compared to Afghanistan. This place is a total s***hole, lol.

guiLT 04-11-2010 10:52 AM

COOL! :D I like the door locks. I havent seen someone paint them yet. Very smart! :)

BEARS-SS 04-11-2010 12:34 PM

I hear you Tysen, I got out of the AF after 14 years, now I'm an Army Contractor.

Thanks guilt, when I bought my emblems from emblempros.com, they sent a pair of unpainted door locks, I thought I'd ask my paint guy to spray them if he had any extra after the rest of the work. When I showed up to pick her up, they were installed, and I'm pretty happy with them!

Tysen 04-11-2010 01:37 PM

Awesome, what do you do? I was in the Army for 9 years. I was recently med boarded for injuries sustained through my Iraq deployments.

Kinetic Kev HWSE 2013 04-11-2010 01:38 PM

Looks Good Bear I like the customized kick Plates, very nice

jabbar 04-11-2010 05:02 PM

I am an ISR Topoff instructor, working for BAE Systems. It's pretty cool work, and the pay is off the charts after spending 14 years AD. You?

I'm thinking of taking her in again and having my guy paint on these (in black)...

Attachment 121212

I've always been a fan of this pattern, but after seeing on the Camaro, I think it's time to ditch the black hockeys and roll with these (again, in black).
