Project Pumpkin: Updated with pics!

So i got my black 2SS RS with IOM interior and a stick on Saturday the 17th of October after a long wait (including a failed order with a local dealer). Placed the order with BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet and Had the car Drop shipped to Manchester and picked up it up right after the first snow.
Soooo now the mods.
Nothing crazy the car is currently in paint two tone Orange/Black with the center section of the hockey strip in the center.
Cat back exhaust
I was going to install a hurst shifter but I am not sure if the manual transmission issues are done and I don't trust the local dealers if I have a warranty issue.
Pics to come when I get the car back.

Good looking 2 tone. Unique. I don't think there is another one on the forum like it. Nice job.

Thanks. I think Becky's mob name should be Becky D-fixer but that could lead to some confusion.

GRILL GRILL GRILL GRILL!!!! After a short fight with a poorly named delivery company I go and installed my grill. I should say I tried to install the grill, following the directions, failed and took the car to swift motorsports in norwich and ignoring the directions the were able to put it on correctly. Cool bunch at Swift I will be taking it there for future mods. For anyone ordering this grill ignore the directions you will just end up chipping your bumper.:( The bracket design needs to be fixed for the install to work the way you are directed to do it.

Pics to be added to first post in a few.

Had the guys at Swift Motor sports do some work for me and found myself in an unfortunate situation when I arrived at there shop which they worked out for me. Good people if you are in SE ct and want some custom work done and they have a dyno. They also sell the show and go plates.
