Update:
Just ordered the red LED Conversion Kit from AAC for the interior and trunk. Cant wait for these to get here and make her interior glow on the inside

Also did this today,
Took the stock SS emblem from the grille and placed it below the shifter since i have the heritage grille now. I though it accented itself nicely here. I was originally going to put it along the trim where below the dash but since the interior is IOM I felt it got kind of lost.

Peeled off the rubber tacking on the back and just filled it in with thumb tack which can be easily removed if i dont want it in that spot anymore. Its a little crooked looking.. must have been tired when i put it on lol

Nice! I did that I while back, now you need to add the cup holder plate to finish it off.

Update:

Got in the mail today my AAC ORACLE Red LED interior light and trunk light as well as my gloss white gill vinyls from BigWormGraphix.

Installing the LED lights were a piece of cake and look really cool giving the car an awesome look from the outside. I took these pics from inside the garage, ill have photos of them when its dark out at another time.

Also i decided instead of putting black gills I would do white instead. Really loving the look of it

And hes a cool shot, you can almost see the metallic flake in the bead

Very nice job. I'm about to do my wife's car (Laditee Blk in color), as you can see in her images it's needed badly, I will opti seal it as well, what products did you use?

Thank you, im quiet pleased with the results considering ive never machine polished in my life. I used the Adams products and would recommend them to anyone looking to achieve the same result.

Severe swirl remover
Swirl and haze remover
fine machine polish
super sealant
