Thank you very much. I am happy to serve our great nation. The red caliper covers really set off the black wheels. I have been to Afghanistan and it is a great place to save a ton of money. Tell him to keep his head up.

I love them too. The first time I saw them in real life was a week ago. I bought on an impulse with the hopes they would work out. It paid off.

I have always loved black wheels. Black and red are a great combo.

The weather was finally nice enough to take some pictures. I would like to give a big thanks to Seth and Colin with Nightshades who came up with a great kit.

I would also like to thank the guys at PDX Wraps for doing the install. They did an amazing job customizing the spoiler. The kit was not designed for the aftermarket dove tail.

If you are in the Portland area and need some vinyl work, I would highly recommend these guys. Top notch and professional.

And now without further ado...

I had them add the front fascia.

Blacked out the rear fascia. I need to paint the bow tie and stick it back on to break up the back end a bit.

I know. I have lowering springs on the list. I knew, the second the new rims went on, it needed to be lowered. I am just out of mod money at the moment.

The last SCCC event was a dyno day held at Leading Edge Performance here in Las Vegas. I am pretty happy with the baseline number of 243hp. I will post the sheet as soon as my scanner arrives.

The car looks awesome I really like the reverse stripes you had put on. The rims are awesome. BTW I think you should think about getting the factory GFX kit to go with the spoiler to me its a great combo.

Thank you so much. I really want to put a ground effects kit on her. It is going to be awhile though. All monies are going to buying a house.

Finally did some work on Sonja today. I have been putting it off for too long now. I painted the rear emblem to break up the rear black out. I have pictures of the project that I will post tomorrow after it all dries and I get it mounted. I forgot to mention that I got some Pfadt drop springs. I will take some pics and make sure to do the before and after ride height.

Thank you very much. I have always wanted to mod a car and show the progress and since it sort of a "thing" on here, it was a no brainer for me. It's too bad that you didn't make a build thread.

I have pics of the rear emblem painted and the new C.A.I. being installed but my computer was not cooperating last night. I also have a Magnaflow cat back exhaust on order with special plans for that. Stay tuned.

C.A.I.

The first of many performance mods. Got a sweet deal from Apex at CamaroFest and had Ted Jannetty do the install. What are really nice guy he is.
