Arrow SSTG's Build. [COTW 3/19/12]

Hey guy's after a few people suggested I start a build thread I figured it might be time.
This is the first time I have ever done a build thread so please forgive me for lack of dates and specifics. I usually don't keep cars long enough to do a build thread.

I bought the car March 2011. Completely stock with 1900 miles on it. Mint condition.

First Mod was a full clear bra. Front, mirrors, rockers, gills and rear quarters. (Firm believer in clear bra)

How it looked when I first got it.

I tried to liven it up a little with the Hockey stripe. I liked it, but when I installed the Heritage grill I tore one side with the guide pins from the front bumper!

I installed 22" TSW Donningtons, made the car look totally different.

I was happy with the SS at this point and should have stopped while I was ahead. But we all know it just doesn't work that way,lol.

I decided to install the Heritage Grill and the GM ground effects.

Although the Donningtons are nice, I wanted something with a Lip. So off with the TSW's and on with the 22'' Rennen Three piece Forged R5's!

I added IOM Painted & Carbon Fiber Vinyl to the interior trim.
Orange Pedals and IOM door kick plates.

As far as performance goes, as of right now I only have a Rotofab CAI and Flowmaster Axel back. I don't want to Void the warranty at this time. I do plan on a Supercharger, Full exhaust and tune in the future!

Do you have a DIY on how to apply the cf vinyl on the interior trims?

Thank you! No, sorry. I didn't do a write up on those. Actually the only write ups I did were on the Switchbacks and Foot wells because those were sponsored items.:(

I am close to the end. Maybe a rear spoiler? I don't want to over do it. You know?
