Can't wait to see the side skirts on man! As a heads up, my shop had to really work hard to get them to fit right. Out of the box, they weren't good unfortunately. However, this was over a year ago, so I had an earlier mold if they changed it by now. Yours may completely be A-okay and hopefully yours will. My painter also painted them well, and the paint doesn't seem to adhere very well to the side skirts. It was okay until about 6 months ago. If I had to do it all over again, I would buy some 3D Carbon side skirts. They fit like a glove and need minimal prep out of the box.

2010 steering wheel and dash vents are much better than current builds.

Our dash vents and our steering wheels are different than the current model! My personal opinion is i like the first style much better with the SS in there and not another BIG GOLD BOWTIE!

I love the steering wheel, and the dash insert on my 2012. I dont like the bowtie, like you said, but it looks much better if you just cover it with vinyl, paint, etc.

I want my center vent to be black, so im going to pull it out one day to do that.

Everyone has their own preference though, it all looks good to me.


Except for 2013 rims lol

Huh, Thats interesting I bet they did that to make them universal to save a penny or two, I feel like if you go and spend the extra money on the SS there should be the small little extra things that the V6 doesnt have other than the engine of course, but they should put a little more in it just imo

Yeah, its part of the scheme on the photoshop on the first page of my build thread, that I want the interior to look like.

But Ive heard its screwed in from the back! So id have to go in behind the dash somehow to get it out.

That and I want to paint the door panels and dash trim from behind. Most people paint the outside and it doesnt look as factory. Also painting the outside usually covers up the ABL
