Oh, you're one of those "gorilla torque" guys!

I just like making sure that things are nice and tight. Though I'll be going with the little-girl approach on the drivers side panel.

Those panels... are they supposed to look familiar to me, or no?

Nope. Still waiting to get your panels back. I picked these up for cheap in the marketplace.

so happy. Kaylee's pretty on the inside now too. Only downside - currently don't have my dash ABL It should be a quick fix. Basically I just need to reinstall the dash ABL following this DIY --> LINK I really wish I had taken the video when I had the old dash piece in. It looked AWESOME. Totally made it all worth it. But it's not even that, I just love telling people that I did my mods myself. I guess you could call it bragging

so in a quick assumption you just replaced the grey piece with a carbon piece and retrofitted the gm light bar onto the carbon fiber.... so same as stock, just with the new panel right?

Basically yea. Wasn't so much retrofitting though, the CF panels are just modified OEM panels. So the light pipe fit perfectly

Very nice, I like the carbon fiber look on the panel. Seen it at SEMA.

Lol. I love how excited you are in the video. "how awesome is this!" I'm always that way about my car, but my wife doesn't understand so she thinks I'm crazy hahaha. Looks great though. I want to do something to my door inserts as well.

That's how I normally am with Kaylee, my girlfriend doesn't get it either but she at least goes along with it. I was mostly excited because I didn't know if the ABL was actually going to work or not until I installed them. Now once I get the dash ABL installed I'll be all set.

I got SJMautoprods cup holder ABL on turquoise too, but I was experimenting with painting the edge of the clear plexy glass with a blue marker and it looks pretty close to the GM aqua blue LED's

Here it is done with a cheap dry erase marker, once I put it on the car will do it with a permanent marker

(little cup holder with the blue marker)





PS... If you want to delete the pictures so it does not mud up your build thread, go ahead I won't think anything of it.

That's actually not a bad idea. I'll have to experiment when I get some more free time.
