Winter is comming up and I would hate to be stranded in the cold with the only source of warmth coming from a burning down Camaro... I'd rather be cold!!

I took a little time to put together a fire extinguisher mount via this DIY. Fire extinguisher with custom bracket for around $30!

It came out awesome and I was able to use hardware I had sitting around from after the engine bay upgrade. Win win!!

I haven't had much time to get out and about, but a few weeks ago I did manage to get out for an amazing cruise through Kentucky's horse country. Derby City Camaro Club also celebrated the end of show season with a nice photo op. It looks like it's mod season again...

I picked up a new tower brace and heritage grill. I should have the brace painted and installed soon. I decided to find a 1LE style front splitter to replace my current splitter. I honestly can't stand my sinister splitter. I have a few more ideas for this coming up show season, so we'll see if I can get them all in!! Wish me luck.

Fenders, Grill, Splitter, Rims, ABL install, RGB halos... should be fun when all the parts start coming in!!

I've had my eye on a NightOwl kit for awhile, but a few weeks ago when they debuted the defused DRL rings I pulled the trigger and picked a whole kit. I didn't take many photos of the install since the kit comes with an awesome install DVD. The product speaks for itself.

Joe from NightOwl is possibly the best customer service person I have ever dealt with too. Within a few minutes of sending an email with a question he was calling my phone to get everything straight. Great guy. Anyone on the ledge of picking one of these up, go for it. You won't regret it.

While the front was off the car I managed to install the new grill and landing pad. I think it and the SS emblem needs to go one grate, so I'll probably change those pretty soon. Next up is a new splitter to finish off the front end refresh.
