Cool Chewy's [potential] build

So, with my free time on deployment I've been scouring the internet and camaro5 trying to find all the perfect pieces, parts, and toys for my car once i get back state side

2010 2SS Manual [Cyber Gray Metallic]

current:

AirAid intake
SunCoast ram air hood
Barton short throw shifter w/ flat stick
LED projectors in doors ("Camaro SS")
carbon fiber interior kit (real CF, but overlays)
matte black taillight rings
black SS's





Future:

Hellion Twin Turbo (or possibly the IPS twin turbo kit)
AutoMeter gauges pillar:
Drift Gauges (boost & AFR):

20" TSW Nurburgring rims (still deciding tho):



Oracle Dual Color halos (white for running lights, and going to wire Amber halos for my turn signals with an independent switch to turn them on manually as well)

Stillen body kit


WCC Carbon Fiber Engine cover

Carbon Fiber Interior

Metra Double Din w/ Ipad (cheaper than DVD/Nav system & i can tether internet, very easy to use, gonna be a serious project installing it tho)


suspension (still up in the air, trying to stay in budget, please advise!) either Eibach lowering springs or Meghan coilovers


MORE COMING!

it fits perfectly into the 05-'09 mustangs! and for anyone wondering why I would need internet or movies in my car: Obviously its a want not a need lol, and I spend a lot of time in my car both driving and parked, i've noticed i spend a LOT of time using my iphone in there killing time when i get places early/waiting for others/deciding what to do. I can check movie times, sports updates, whats going on around town a LOT easier than on my phone + play games + watch movies + turn my turn directions.

Plus the Rev 2 app is pretty cool for "Dyno" and 1/4 runs along with OBDII monitering

heres a vid of the mustang, theres another vid somewhere also...

I know the military keeps you away from your C5, but any new mods to report?

That hood our yours , is one of the best I've seen so far!
