Well maybe this will spark peoples intrest!

Here are some pictures of the Mods i have lined up for when i get my Car.

The first thing i purchased was a Paited Heritage grille back in September from Garyz customs. Painted to Match with Retro SS emblem installed.



Then I got a NLP (Next Level Performance ) Spoiler. It will be painted to match when i get the ground effects paited!!





Then I got a set of Custom Rally stripes from Rider Graphix....These things are INSANE....I got the rally kit, and rider cut the spoiler peice longer to wrap all the way over my NLP spoiler so it will look like the ZLcars

I got the stripes in High Gloss black with ULTRA Metallic flakes....holy crap...these stripes look like someone loaded a potato gun up with glitter then shot the hell out of the stripes...here are some pictures

I had zero interest in doing anything with the grill until I saw your heritage grill. That's tight! Will that fit an SS/RS?
