Heres the interior, the dome light makes it look more tan, but the real color is light beige, closer to white.

Great build!

I need to see about getting those dash inserts... I've got the same interior color but the 2010 dash.

Looks great!

The leather part on the dash? Yeah, Its got stiching around it, like its sewn in there, I dont know if they took a 2010 and added the leather part, but it seems to be recessed a bit as if the redisgned the dash.

I havent seen if anyone has tried to recreate it.

I need to do some research and see if that whole dash piece will retrofit on a 2010. That would probably be the easiest.

I dont see why it wouldnt, nothing else is different (besides the gauges and steering wheel obviously). Just could be expensive. Also, a few people were complaining about the leather part bubbling/coming loose a lil where it has to turn downward under the airvents. But I havent had it happen.


I havent painted the door and dash panels red/maroon yet because I want to paint them from the inside, like factory. And I want to get a test piece first, probably the little dash piece to the left, and see if it looks good after removing the original gold color

Just orderd a few things! First actual purchases for the car:

CRT RX Catch Can from JDP Motorsports
6.2L Cowl Badges from EmblemPros for my hood (going over the hood spears)http://emblempros.com/inc/sdetail/3448/2501
Flat Black Hood Spears

I didnt get spears from Big Worm, first of all, the price, 70$ for little strips of vinyl, ridiculous. Second of all, they are too fat towards the end, I wanted them to taper more, and NOT wrap underneath the hood. Wrapping underneath kinda ruins the line going onto the bumper/mailslot.

JDP was amazing, this morning I emailed saying there wasnt a CRT option, and Jordan added it within an hour or so and let me know.

Also, I have been a customer of EmblemPros for years with my 4th gen, probably bought 10 sets of emblems and badges from them, always amazing quality, at a price that isnt cheap, but goes hand in hand with the quality.

Have to take the car in for the rear end fluid/friction modifier bulletin.

But, I got my solo exhaust and quad tips in!

So this weekend, I will cut my old exhaust off, take the diffuser off and modify it for quad tips, put the solo on and go around the corner to the muffler shop and get the tips on, and probably have to get it centered and re-hung.

I am eventually getting the ZL1 diffuser, but the modified stock one will have to do for now

Installed my Solo axle back today, and I cut the diffuser with a dremel so I can fit my quad 4" tips.

I have to go to a muffler shop in the next couple days to get the tips welded on and have them centered.

The diffuser is just temporary until I get the ZL1 rear diffuser.

I will post a video and more pics once they are installed

Finished my Exhaust. Quad 4" tips, Solo axleback, and I modified the rear diffuser with a dremel tool. I plan to get the ZL1 diffuser eventually, so this is temporary.

SOLO sounds good, strong and mean, not too loud and not too quiet. I think it will be perfect with headers. Here are some iPhone pics
