So it snowed a few inches here this morning, and we figured it would be the perfect time to get some doughnut footage.

I have a whole bunch of new ideas for mods this spring and summer. Looks like I'll be working on the car's lights as well as suspension upgrades and perhaps some added horsepower! I might even paint on a new set of stripes that as far as I know haven't been done before. Stay tuned!

First mod of the year. SMD Interior 9 LED Pod from JWMotoring. More LED's are definitely going to be installed.

How do you do that ? I live in Jersey and have the same ugly front plate. I read some where there was a fold up/in hide a way plate bracket. What would I do with the holes that were already drilled out for the original GM front plate holder ?

If you want to remove the drilled bracket, you'll need to take it into a body shop and have them patch the holes and paint over the patch. The retractable license plate frame is on my to do list but it'll be a while since the patching likely won't be cheap.

Thanks man. Here's the latest addition. P13W Plasma LED DRL lights from AAC. I had a few issues with installation that have been resolved in my thread here, also more pictures:

Replaced my stock turn signal bulbs today with chome ones so they dont look orange when they're off anymore. Light output is still amber. Before and after pics below.

Just installed my side markers I bought from AAC. Paint quality was very good, and packaging was substantial enough to protect them from the wrath of my UPS driver. Installation was very easy, only took about 20 minutes, including a break since I had to deal with some Jehovah's Witnesses solicitation. Night pics coming soon.

Mine are called "matte graphite". It's really close to looking like matte gunmetal, I wouldn't say black though.

Got some tail-light overlays from Big Worm Graphix. Very good quality product. I got their 30% "Charcoal" tint. Very simple to install, and they look great. Especially if your car's theme involves anything in black. I put these on about a week ago, so they haven't quite finished curing (which takes up to two weeks) so they still have a few bubbles here and there to evaporate. The lights are still very visible when on, day or night. Very happy about that since safety is always important, especially with my car.

They're on my to-do list. I was planning on using plasti-dip on mine, but I broke one of the tabs when I was trying to remove my first one and couldn't figure out how to get it out (probably user error), so I'm going to wait until I can get a set of replacement bezels or get someone to do the whole thing for me.

Finally installed a bowtie delete. Despite how much I loved the paint on it, all the rock chips really made it look unsightly and I also didn't like how freekin' big the front bowtie is. Looks much cleaner now. Hopefully sometime this summer I'll get a painted heritage grill ordered and it will look even cleaner! Also, I have a ton more mods on the way including some go-fast parts so stay tuned!
