puertoricanfont Build Thread "Esperanza"

So i bought my car 2 years ago when i was in the marine corps. I had a 2009 lancer and wasn't trying to find another vehicle. But once i first caught a glimpse of the car i couldnt stop obsessing about it. 2 months later i finally talked the dealership down and got my new 2010 camaro ls with 3 miles for 21600. Even tho the car was plain as jane i love every aspect of my new car. I never had so many people stare at me while i drove by.

I decided to mod my engine cover this past weekend. I used some plastic spray paint and a saw blade to make the cuts. I think for a total of 10 dollars the outcome came out real good.

After doing the engine cover i had some unused led from a fail project. At first i was gonna use some 5mm leds to light up the projector of my headlights to give it a true "Demon eye" look. But after experimenting the led did not last that long from the heat of the projector. So instead i decided to use these to light up my door handles.

the latest mod i finished was my grill lighting. I originally bought a dynamic scanner from AAC and it arrived broken. Being the dummy that i was i never kept my receipt and john said that he couldn't do anything about it without a receipt. This was upsetting because i know a few other members that had warranty exchanges without receipts . So instead of spending another 90$ for another led bar i bough this one instead.
http://store.ijdmtoy.com/RGB-7-Color...scanner_6d.htm.
So far the led bar has been on for 2 weeks and still working like a champ. One thing i notice too is that the control box and remote looked almost exactly as the one from AAC. The led bar were somewhat different that AAC but was still a quality part. the color the led bar can do is red, green, blue, yellow, magenta, cyan, and white and is programmed for multiple modes. But i like the red the best
