Congratulations on the new ride! Not that we're taking a vote however +1 on Phoenix as a name recommendation. Climbing from the cinders, in a manner of speaking. Appears fitting yet maybe excessively of a memo?

The carbon fiber pieces look great I'm sure it won't be the last pieces we will see what's next?, I'm surprised you haven't hit up the bowties yet.

On another note, what are those two stains on the drivers side Recaro's? And on the passenger side on the seat bolster?

Lol - they're sweat, it's been stupid humid here the past few days. I was dripping by the time I finished everything.

I've got a couple more CF pieces coming, but holding off to install them until my postal scale arrives (I'm weighing everything I install).

Will probably do the bowties once I figure out what accent color I want - that parts been surprisingly hard to figure out.

Ordered a set of the Showstoppers front mud guards. They were having a Labor Day sale, $30 off plus free shipping - couldn't resist.

Have you thought of Kinetic Blue as the accent color? That would be one of my top choices with AGM

Now that right there is not a bad price. But their normal price is stupid expensive

Hadn't thought of kinetic blue actually. Might have to do some PS mock ups.

And yes, the $125 + shipping is stupid expensive.

Nice. I would love to see what you come up with. I know of a few AGM/CGMs with Blue accents but not many and think it looks awesome. Maybe the C7s Laguna Blue could be another Blue to consider seeing it is some what a little different from Kinetic Blue.

Possibly, I might pick up some bowties from Ofer and a couple rattle cans of Leguna and Kinetic blue to mess around with. Haven't really decided yet.

Still need to talk to Pete and figure out what Pedders red is going on Fi.

Could have sworn I already posted pics of the AAC stuffs - odd.

Anyway, a box from AAC showed up the other day...



Inside was awesomeness...




Really loved that the side mirrors came to me unpainted. Got to see all the inner workings of them.








Here are a few installed pics of the side markers. It's really amazing how you forget how much the stock side markers stick out when you haven't had to look at them for 2 years.





Will be installing more stuff this afternoon....

The most essential part - the part that my entire build will be focus around arrived today.

This bad boy can handle up to 75 pounds

Might have done a bit more modding too...


Started off wanting to install my carbon fiber AAC side mirrors, but I noticed that there was a gap in the housing (see below). So shot an email to Alan asking him what I should do about it.



So back up plan - armrest. Here's the awesome DIY that I used: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=93057

Stock armrest


Didn't bother taking photos of the install as the DIY I linked above pretty much covered everything.





Only thing that bugged me is the carbon fiber armrest weighs 5 ounces more than the OEM one.

Yes - everything that comes off or goes on Fiona gets weighed.
