Matte black Hash Marks
Gen5diy DRL Harness

Interior Mods:
Blue footwells

Performance Mods:

Here's my car the day I got it:


And now:

My first mod was the GEN5DIY DRL Harness. I was disappointed when I found out you couldn't run the fog lights with the halo's so I knew this was one of the first things I wanted to change

Next up is the heritage grill. I decided to leave the bowtie out of the grill. Really love the look

I decided to plastidip the tail light bezels, and tint the tail lights and side markers. I removed the rear bowtie while I was at it.



And a before/after of the back:

Decided it was time for a performance mod so after trying to balance cost and quality I decided on the K&N Typhoon

I had footwell lights in my 98 SS and decided I wanted them again so I found some fairly inexpensive blue LED's and wired them on a switch to the cigarette lighter. Works well for what I want.

Figured I would try my hand at plasti dipping my wheels. One day i'll get some actual black ones but for now this does the trick and doesnt look half bad!

On my first attempt I left the chrome lip,



but decided I didn't like it afterall, so redid it spraying the entire wheels

Next up came the rear ls7 style black out. Its very subtle on AGM and sometimes you wouldn't even notice its there, but overall I like it.

After seeing member jenL 's post about chrome bulbs on here, I decided to try it for myself. For a free mod, you can't beat the change.

Which brings me to today, and finally being caught up. I did plastidip hash marks. I wasn't sure beforehand because of my car being AGM, but after seeing them, I really like it. I'll probably replace them with vinyl at some point. Again, very subtle, but there when you look.

Great Looking car. Can't wait to see what else you have in stored for this car.
The rims look killer with the color and your paint color. It compliments with each other.
